    With that, and them fake air-dropping the Queen in obvious mockery of the lip synching in the opening ceremony four years ago, could it be that London has pulled off a shanzhai of the 2008 Olympics? Lo, the Anglo-imperialist cultural buggernaut! Wail and lament its all-assimilating fury!

    I for one fucking HATE them (there are 2): Wenlock and Mandeville .

    wiki quote:

    "According to the associated (fictional) storyline, they were formed from the last girder of the Olympic Stadium. Their skins are made of highly polished steel allowing them to reflect the personalities and appearances of the people they meet. Their one eye is a camera and on their heads are yellow lights symbolizing those of a London Taxi."

    There I was previously wondering if these were ACTUALLY supposed to be physical manifestations of the hideous surveillance society the British have built for themselves (i mean for their peasants) or big brother, or Orwell's 1984 - but didnt think they actually really had a balls to be so bold - BUT fuck me with a fish fork, that is exactly what they are.

    For some fucked up reason, this is apparently something which should both be celebrated and lauded. Great. What are supposed to be cute and endearing mascots are in fact cold and steely physical personifications of oppression, subjugation and elitist control of the proletariat.

    Ya know, at least in the olden days, talking about that shit was considered poor form, and the last thing anybody wanted to do was rub the peasants faces in it (feces) for fear that they would fucking revolt and shove their pitchforks through the eyes of the ruling class. The way it is supposed to be. How sad and pathetic that today the proles WORSHIP their overlords and in some sick way get off on the fact that they are viewed as maggots. Perhaps they are deluded enough to think that if they worship hard enough, they too will eventually be given the opportunity to "rise" to ruling status and subjugate others. Both lol and disgusting.

    A mascot formed in the shape of a nondescript steel body topped off with an all seeing cyclops eye at the top... just a step away from the total information awareness act logo well, its just begging to be sniped and bombed with thermite if you ask me.

    So, your options were...

    or

    2) Everything in the UK is undercover

    Clearly you went with the reasonable choice.

I hardly think so, so why not amuse others while I can, I don't care about what u said to me or u calling me an idiot, cos u don't even know me in real life, 1 question, what do u do in real life? u might want more attention from others

    The other problem is when people invent things to rage about, and then mindless followers jump on it as the gospel truth: Alex's entire premise that the mascots represent the surveillance society of modern Britain is based purely on a camera on a mascot, as well as the tenuous conflation of the government and the people responsible for choosing the mascot.

    @Eric,

    You have to really bear in mind that Tara's 'point of view' that she feels compelled to state is one that's located directly behind and below Alex's nether regions, and so probing too deeply into her unquestioning defenses is a bit of a waste of time. This may change once he's jilted her and the promise of visiting the US/UK has evaporated, but until then you may just wish to let it go.

    Lol-twat: go and do some reading up about these mascots. You will find that my "entire premise" is entirely correct.

    Anarchist.

    is humanity going to have a slight change because of ur words?

    Humanity frequently changes on the basis of words, idiots like you dont understand this and in turn you have resigned yourself to serfdom, fiefdom and servitude. Stick your head in the sand Eric, theres nothing you can do, just give up now and crack jokes on the way to the oven / delousing chamber, im sure you will make all your fellow slaves happy.

    and the promise of visiting the US/UK has evaporated

    This photo from the Daily Mail was my first encounter with the London Olympic mascot, and

    the mascots represent the surveillance society of modern Britain

    truly was the first thought that crept into my mind, which is admittedly a little more addled by hallucinogens this summer than usual. But this really is where I was going with the idea of Britain trolling the Olympics.

    ...Proceed.

    I love Daniel scoffing at me - "Haha Alex thinks the mascots represent surveillance and he bases this off the fact that they look like giant sauron eye camera hybrids mouted on tripod like steel structures - har har hes so....wait...oh shit now I look like a douche..."

    @Eric Lee

    I think you had better let the macaque write your posts for you from now on, hes far more likely to contribute something of substance to humanity than you, clearly.

    Did this moment of a non-Asian, non-female person agreeing with you feel like you always thought it would?

    It still doesn't alter the fact that your premise is based on a camera representing surveillance and, as you referenced Orwell, government control. What's more baffling is that you are espousing a wishfully universal interpretation of the imagery of those mascots in a thread where the main topic is 'this mascot looks like a giant penis'.

    @ Wicked Witch of the East I'm not sure where I was dribbling about the UK, but I guess the reason for insulting your intelligence is an attempt to try to shock it into life. Another example of your nimble thinking: Tara never 'assumed' you lived in London, she simply instructed you to get on a train to London to see what you've been unaware of up to now.

    @Tara,

    I never expected someone like you to understand

    I actually think most people here think in a similar way: I am definitely not the first to have noticed that whenever Alex says something stupid (so nearly every time he posts), you're there to support it. This thread is a pretty good example. This thread started off simply asking 'Do the mascots look like penises? Discuss'. Enter Mr. Born-Again-Marxist. Then, when someone takes issue with Alex's attempt to self-aggrandize by trying to be super-clever with Marxist ideology (in a thread about the penile-appearance of mascots, no less), he reacts with

    It is idiots like you...[who don't give me the love and acceptance that I so desperately crave]

    and then Tara, and then, you write to the recipient of the hostility

    please don't mind.. what Alex says probably does not apply here in your case

    Now, you may have been confused by my asking Eric to forgive Alex, but I assure you, I only ever meant it in an apologetic way, in the same way that a carer might ask forgiveness for a psychiatric patient that has stumbled into a hospital's waiting area and has started eating the chairs.

    More like barely larger-than-life not-on-fire cartoonish eyeballs replacing the faces of shiny bipeds. Yup. The acid has worn off now. What's ^'s excuse?

    Honestly, I thought the resemblance to cameras was totally unintentional, but I don't have a clear mental image of London taxis. It was the judge's wig and angry eyebrow on a shiny space monster that had me going.

    Lol, I would ask you how it felt the first time you made love to a non-ovine mammal but know that you havn't made it that far yet. In response, it felt as good as it always does, but not as good as riling up frustrated Welshmen that long for a good nights sheep. (You might want to try going here for cuties if youre still feeling fidgety.)

    Displays lack of knowledge.

    Next time you see something other than a giant squid with an eye the size of a basketball let me know k?

    Finally you come across something factual! I am, in fact, from Wales. I'm not convinced I seem at all riled (rather than pleasantly aloof), but this is fine too. If you had perhaps spent less time sending meandering 'respect my privacy :,(' messages, videoing yourself attacking trees with swords and helping to keep the Beijing sexual health clinics in business, you might have found faster success, or at least found some more innovative way of trolling a Welshman's natural and, even poetic, love of sheep.

    Danny Boyo you are backtracking. What happened with also your arguments about the BNP and British life!

    I was pointing out an hypocrisy: I have no issues with the sheep-shagging slur. I am disappointed that the best attempts to troll me have been a cliche (Sheep-shagger), a cultural pseudo-insult (an English teacher) and something that I'm honestly not sure qualifies as being a bad thing (a spellchecker), but I'll live with the disappointment.

    If you are wondering about the BNP thing, essentially what happened was that you, in your misguided desire to be British and show everyone on the forum how totally British you are (hint: being able to understand the intricacies of people's expressions in the native language would help) contradicted my assertion that Britain has a lot of overt racism, and then wildly quoted whatever it was you happened to be reading at the time when you failed to address how a country that elects an overtly racist political party to represent them in Europe can not have issues with overt racism.
