O.K., so I sojourned across the "blog-pond" to see what my friend, Bent Society, has been up to during my hiatus. There, my friend is ranting about the London 2012 Olympic mascot. My heart immediately begins to sink, as I'm expecting to see something resembling a golliwog of sorts, to which I know that I am simply going to go off!
Thank goodness! It wasn't a golliwog (don't want to upset Oprah) but a strange one-eyed, red, white, and blue figure that looks quite strange at best. Bent likens the mascot to resembling male genitalia. Not sure that I would go quite that far - but, I did have quite a bit of trouble trying to figure out what the mascots have to do with the Olympics.
Seems that I'm not alone with trying to figure out the significance of the mascots to the Olympics. The Telegraph has graciously provided a guide to understanding their design.
I don't know, but it seems to me that if you have to do all of that explaining that it just might be a tad bit too complicated. But, that just me...
