Weird Olympics Mascots?

*subhead*Weird.*subhead*
I was incredibly bored by the opening ceremonies of the Olympics. Let's face it, it was weird and there was more time dragging sets on and off the stadium floor than actual performance time.

So I thought that was the weirdest thing I'd seen having to do with the Olympics. But then I saw this advertisement for the Olympics and I still don't know what to make of it. Has Great Britain completely lost its mind?

I didn't think anything could trump the weirdness of a squadron of Mary Poppinses vanquishing the Dark Lord, but here we are.

Opening ceremonies are proof that you can take some of the best things in any culture, put them in a blender, push puree and wind up with a very strange and disturbing smoothie.

Or you can trip some acid, take things from your culture that the average kid in the basement has a working knowledge of, and pretend that is the sum and summit of your culture, add lights, fireworks and an orchestral score and call it a day.

The mascots are weird. What are they supposed to represent?

This is what you get when the terror of 'offending' someone becomes the prime mover. Animated blobs of vaguely British metal.

Ding bots!

Still, they'll transform into plushies just fine; my daughters have Fire, Water and Earth from the Chinese Olympics, and although I keep thinking they look pretty Aztec flavored, they're loved....

It's perfectly obvious to me what all this means.

It means that grandpa and grandma are the surrogate caretakers of the fatherless grandchildren (the new norm), so all family configurations are equal. In fact it's probably good that they kicked the dad out--bum that he was--spending so much time at the pub--he was such a yob! Or perhaps the kids were the product of "donor sperm"--you just never know.

The family is very sympathetic to the homosexual agenda, thus the rainbow coming out of the sky as something heavenly and creative. Gender differences are given zero value as the creatures are asexual. Mom might be a lesbian and is not there to witness the gifting of the "Asexualoids" to the kids. She's probably spending the night at her girlfriend's place.

Redfeather, you hit that out of the park!

I dunno... it might have something to do with the "Eye" (the giant ferris wheel thingy) in London :).

I'm sorry, but my first thought was that they were modeled on Kang and Kodos from the Simpsons Halloween specials.
