It’s Friday. Do Lighten Up, Old Bean.

This is the official logo of the 2012 Summer Olympics.


To say it's "caused a bit of a stir" is a bit like saying "The Titanic had a few bugs to work out."

But did those Londoners back down? Never, never, never! They doubled down. Not with delicious chicken sandwiches, but with this:

Presenting "Wenlock" and "Mandeville," the official mascots of the 2012 London Summer Olympic Games. 


"Yes-yes y'all!"

No, we're not kidding. They even did a video!

But you know who is kidding? The kids. As in, "The Kids, They Will Mess With Your Brand."

Let's see what you scamps have gotten up to with your PhotoShop.


Expected. (But still funny.)

"Not in our house, Chalmers!"

"Say "What the #*#$&* are those things supposed to be?" again, mother#*$er.
Say it again. I dare you!"


"Sweep the leg-like protrusion, Johnny!"

We're through the looking glass, people.


KANG: "Fooling these Earth voters is easier than expected."
"Yes. All they want to hear are bland pleasantries embellished by an occasional saxophone solo or infant kiss."

This explains so much. Enjoy the rest of your Friday – and please continue twirling, twirling, twirling to freedom.

There's more (NSFW but hilarious) fun over at Deadspin.
