2008 Beijing Olympics Mascot

In a move towards getting my blog banned in China (where it already does every once so often), I'm going to hate on the olympic mascot today. Well, I'm open to comments (especially if you can change my mind about them), but my honest opinion is that they are ugly. Period.

I like the Olympics logo, but the mascot just doesn't quite cut it. It's as if they had hired me to be their character artist. And even so, I would have been smart enough to outsource it to someone who can do a better job. Characters like those can only bubble up the chain when people either don't care, have bad taste, or are corrupt.
