Had I the heavens' embroidered cloths,
Enwrought with golden and silver light,
The blue and the dim and the dark cloths
Of night and light and the half-light,
I would spread the cloths under your feet:
But I, being poor, have only my dreams;
I have spread my dreams under your feet,
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.
Wenlock The London 2012 Olympic mascot is having a rough time.
News has just come in to my sources at Molly
Media that the bizarre Olympic mascots, Wenlock and Mandeville have
failed to win over the British public. Shares of the Toy-maker Hornby have
plummeted by at least a third. It was forced to issue
a profits warning on the back of poor sales of its Olympic merchandise this
week. Based upon blobs of steel and featuring a single eye these less than
cuddly mascots were designed to symbolise the 2012 Games. The great British
public failed to warm to the strange figures and a whole of host of unsold
branded souvenirs and collectibles are now gathering dust on toyshop shelves.
We suggest they sell them to the BBC for use in the next series of Dr Who or
Torchwood! Wow they may be destined for the POUND SHOP and I can get some
more to de-stuff. No surprise, they were described as sinister,
disturbing, creepy and frightening. Commentators had complained that the duo
scared children and projected an image of a ‘Big Brother’ surveillance state. These malevolent looking mascots were hideous and who wants a one eyed toilet brush anyway? Wenlock and
Mandeville were created by London-based creative agency Iris, which said the
mascots had been designed to appeal to children. We think a fitting epitaph
would be, Wenlock and Mandeville scaring children since 2012!
