Squirrel Thoughts: Your No. 1 source for mascot news!

EDITOR’S NOTE: I promise that tomorrow I will have a post on my epic Conan adventure, with photos. A masterpiece such as this takes time. I’m working on it. For now, you can enjoy the following post on another obnoxious obsession of mine: mascots!

When I first saw pictures of Wenlock and Mandeville, the mascots for the 2012 Summer Olympics in London, I was like, “What the F? These mascots are just one-eyed blobs of metal! There’s nothing cute and fluffy about that!” I’m pretty biased toward creatures of the cute and fluffy variety, so this was  a huge letdown, initially.

But then I watched this video about them, and they’re actually pretty awesome. I mean, what kind of  heartless brute could resist Wenlock posing like Usain Bolt? Totally adorbs! I’ve had such a change of heart that I even decided to be best friends with them on Facebook! (OK, we’re technically not “friends,” per se, but I am a fan. They’ll notice me some day!)

With all these exciting developments, I’m not sure I can wait another 799 days for the Olympics to start!
