Before I delve back into homework, I'd like to direct you all to the OMG SO CUTE mascots for the Vancouver Olympics in 2010.

Warning, this may cause mass amounts of Squeeing

If anybody was feeling very considerate, they would make me LJ icons of these guys because I am currently lacking the ability to do so (think of it as an amazingly inexpensive xmas gift).

The only thing I have issue with, and this probably shows you how horribly warped my brain has become over the years, is the Miga is a seabear. From the site: Miga is a young sea bear who lives in the ocean with her family pod, out past Vancouver Island near Tofino, British Columbia. Sea bears are part killer whale and part bear. Miga is part Kermode bear, a rare white bear that only lives in British Columbia.

Does this NOT read like somebody's fursona? Complete with the whole "rare white bear that only lives in British Columbia" bit. The only thing needed would be some magical powers and/or a sexual kink that involves snowboarding.

As I told clearmind in a chat not too long ago, some irate furry is most likely threatening to sick internet lawyers on the Vancouver Olympics council for copyright infringment.

You don't want to know what followed that conversation. But it involves the Modzilla Thunderbird and the anthropomorphic personification of a marketing wave.

Come to think of it, THAT would make an awesome LJ icon too....
