Dear Izzy: You’re Vindicated!


Yes, Izzy.  You were the most abused Olympics mascot, but now, you are no longer the worst mascot for an Olympiad that has graced the earth. You’ve been surpassed by a one eyed monster that is so phallic, it would put you to shame.

Meet Wenlock (the orange wang on your left), named for the English city of Much Wenlock in Shropshire, where the alleged Shropshire Slasher lived, that hosted an Olympics-type event in the 19th Century who was unveiled as the official mascot for the Games of the XXIX Olympiad in London in 2012.  This isn’t the the first time the London Organizing Committee for the Olympic Games has had “FAIL” written all over.  One look at the Games’ logo says it all.

Worst. Olympic. Logo. Ever!

Need I say no more?

    Best comment I saw about those mascots. From Spencer Hall: Don’t search “one eyed monster” with safe search off looking for Olympic mascot comparisons. Just don’t.
