And I thought I'd post an Olympic related Nth entitled Taking Mascots to the Nth Degree.
Tonight taking mascots to the Nth Degree. So ready or not, watching or not, the Olympics are here. Time for us all to fall in love with and buy lots of products emblazoned with the new adorably cuddly Olympic mascots.
Are you ready to meet them? Here they are, Phevos and Athena. According to Olympic organizers, this distorted duo are, despite those tabloid rumors, brother and sister quote, "full of vitality and creativity, perhaps mischievous and hence lovable."
Bob Costas on the other hand called them a genetic experiment gone horribly, ghastly wrong. Sure it is easy to mock the mascots but when you peek at the mall of mascots that have before them, they aren't so bad. Remember the "what is it?" What was that all about?
There have been plenty of mascots who have made us scratch our heads over the years through summers and winters. We're still trying to figure out what this one was all about. In response to criticism, Greek Olympic organizers say, come on. Actually, they're Greek so they say, Eh la (ph), give these mischievous and hence lovable mascots a chance. We say, Phevos and Athena, chin up, you may not have chins, but we love you anyway.
