Snarcoleptic_Hoosier: Ah yes, Izzy. The un-aborted love child of a Noids/Smurf orgy. Good times.

Elegy: Jackson Herring: This one is awesome:I know right? It just screams "lesbo pride". Way to go, Canada.
Nina9: And if you're from Atlanta, you may remember that "Izzy" was orginally an abomination called "Whatizzit." Which is what people said when they first saw it. Such was the public outcry that it was changed to the much-better "Izzy."

indylaw: These mascots have nothing on Zyklon, the Jew-hating cloud from the 1936 games.
BEER STEAK: Best mascot ever was Berlino from the 2009 Track and Field World Championships in Berlin. All the athletes loved him. Here is a clip, it's much too long, but has a few bright moments. Actually skip ahead to the photo montage starting at 5:40 and you'll get the gist: Best of Berlino
EngineerAU: Whatizzit looked like someone left the top off of a tube of Aquafresh. The Izzy redesign helped quite a bit.
mesmer242: I'm glad they left Vancouver off the list. I thought they were kinda cute, especially in person.[i47.tinypic.com image 640x427]Yeah, they were doing the YMCA.
