… Wenlock and Mandeville were born:
Stoke Mandeville’s famous spinal injuries unit meanwhile was where the Paralympic movement began, and the naming of one mascot after the hospital is an explicit attempt to raise the profile of the Paralympic Games.
Mandeville’s designers unfortunately had the bad taste of making his crotch an incontinent blue. Ugh.
The reviews are in:
Two parts-Pokemon to one-part lava lamp with yellow ‘Taxi’ lights on their foreheads
the stupidest and downright ugliest Olympic mascots ever
“If the Games are going to be remembered by their art then we can declare them a calamitous failure already.”
It must be a fascinating planet that the designer of this must be from: I wish that I could visit it.
