Not sure what to say about these other than meet the mascots for the London 2012 Olympics….two alien cyclops(es?) dressed in onesies called Mandeville and Wenlock (are those real names? places? historical references I should be familiar with?)
Even the lame description of their ‘features’ doesn’t help much….a taxi light? really? are we meant to hail these things? friendship bracelets? wasn’t that so 2001? are you sure they aren’t shag bands? oooh but look kids, their eye is meant to be a camera ‘recording everything’ that’s not creepy at all.
I’m probably going to read tomorrow that these were designed by a group of blind, armless children struck down with swine flu who’s last wish was to contribute something pretty to the Olympics….then I will feel bad.
*For your reference this saying is really ‘the ayes have it’ and is used in the UK House of Commons when they pass a bill and people vote aye or nay and if the majority is ayes they declare ‘the ayes have it’….take that to your next pub quiz/jeopardy try out/trivial pursuit party
