London Olympic Mascots Remind Me of Kang and Kodos

olympicsI've been giggling at the official logo for the 2012 London Olympic games since it was unveiled 5 years ago. Click over and see what I mean.

I've only recently checked out the mascots for these upcoming Olympic games, and they're a little goofy as well. They're called Wenlock and Mandeville and here they are:

When I see them, all I can think of is Kang and Kodos from The Simpsons Halloween specials.

Toronto Mike Verified as the defacto Toronto Mike

No, but I hear Doug and Rob would happily skip their family cottage thing on the Canada Day long weekend if we had a Canada Day parade on July 1.

How revealing and unsurprising!

Great comparison Mike. Why not make one mascot that is recognizable for the Olympics, like the Bonne Homme of Quebec Carnival fame? They probably paid some consulting PR firm well for these characters.
As for the Ford brothers, to each his own.
