I despair. They're spending £12 billion plus on this shite.
Two alien-like creatures called Mandeville and Wenlock have been unveiled as mascots for London 2012 Games.
Going all-out for child appeal, London 2012 organisers created a cartoon and signed up best-selling children's writer Michael Morpurgo (Never heard of him)to build a background story for the abstract characters.
London 2012 said it cost "a few thousand pounds" to create the designs but would not release a figure.
Multiply by ten then. FOI request maybe?
It gets worse:
Wenlock and Mandeville come complete with their own Twitter and Facebook sites plus their own website at www.london2012.com/mascots.
Go there and go to hell.
I'm going to lie down with a stiff drink.
