At Least It Isn't That Weird "Izzy" Thing From The Atlanta Games

Last night we were discussing the Olympic mascots, and nobody could actually name or describe what they were this time around. Now I know why.

Is it just me, or are they a little, you know, ugly?

Given that the current Greek Olympian scandal, and the number of drug cheats that have already been caught, this piece of hyperbole seems particularly amusing:
"They are two children who show us, through their love of play and their love of the game, that the important thing is taking part and not the result."

Yeah, right.
