Worst Olympics' mascots

The best and worst Olympic mascots


Athena and Phevos were mumu-wearing no-necked flipper-armed deformities whose feet were so gout-ridden that they were forced to go barefoot. They were supposed to look like ancient dolls, but many Greeks found the figures stereotyping and degrading. A huge high-profile mascot failure.

With his lightning bolt eyebrows, big red shoes, Donny Osmond teeth and ringed multi-colored tail, Izzy appeared to have been designed by a team of kids with attention deficit disorder. ... Bob Costas called the mascot “a genetic experiment gone horribly, ghastly wrong.”

Comment: I found this humorous!
