Well, I gave them time, let the concept sink in, tried viewing them ironically, canvassed artistically-minded friends, looked at it from a sporting perspective, but I keep coming back to the same conclusion.

They're rubbish.

    Yup, they look censored .

    But what can you expect when we have an Olympic logo that looks like Lisa Simpson giving a censored ?

    Rubbish, yes, but what are they?

    Or what are they supposed to be?

    Droplets of steel used to make the Olympic stadium, obviously! Are you stupid or sumit?

    They are supposed to be mascots with.
    1. No gender,
    2. No ethnicity,
    3. No age.
    so they don't offend anyone, but somehow have managed to by being just that.

    Mascots rubbish.
    Logo rubbish.
    TeamGB kits f-ing awful.
    Stratford ugly.

    I'm convinced this country is run by a load of idiots. Why oh why would we spend billions showing this to the world.

    As a bit of balance, the velodrome is very good.

    And you will never see it any other way again.

    Glad to be of service.

    More likely is that all these people have convinced themselves that they're brilliant, and then added blinkers to obscure the majority view that it's all a bit rubbish really.

    At last the perfect job for Jedward, no holes for a mouth on those costumes I can see. Then kill 'em off at the closing ceremony. Come on Danny Boyle, you know it makes sense!

    They're rubbish aren't they.

    Considering design is something that Britain is meant to be OK at, we haven't half made a mess of the logo/mascot/kit

    Still, the Olympic park looks fairly impressive

    They look like something out of those weird Japanese cartoons (no, not that type....).

    Stephen Bayley, founder of the Design Museum, believes his daughter summed the mascots up perfectly when she referred to them as 'rubbish earrings'.
    He said: 'The logo was hideous enough but now we have these ridiculous, infantile mascots. Who is to blame for this I ask you?
    'Given the economic predicament that Britain is in at the minute, what right do they have to throw their money at such hideous creatures? They are atrocious.'
