It’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s a…sasquatch? With fluffy blue earmuffs? And galoshes? WTF?
Yes, some Canadians put down the bong long enough to draw us some, um, lovely sketches of the 2010 Olympic mascots — Sumi the “Thunderbird,” Quatchi the Sasquatch, and Miga the Sea Bear. Is this Canada or the mystical land of Orija, where animals wear ugly clothes, get tattoos, style their hair into mohawks (or maybe it’s just a cowlick?) and wink at you?
I guess it’s not that weird to make up animals for Olympic mascots though. I mean, Beijing has decided to reinvent the Captain Planet crew as cuddly looking teddy bear things. What, don’t believe me? Look at these bad asses (and they cost a pretty penny too if you want to buy stuffed animals or keychains or whatnot). Hopefully, they actually can take pollution down to zero, because that city is DISGUSTING.
