Vancouver 2010 Mascots (amended repost)

Happy Fun Ball
Much to my amusement, my photoshopping of Pedobear in with the Vancouver 2010 mascots last July ended up on the first page for a Google image search for "Vancouver 2010 mascots" in fairly short order and remains there. I was just looking at my site stats for January and that blog post got viewed nearly 27,000 times!

hahaha excellent.

I confess to owning just a small MukMuk keychain, tho I took the 2010 dangly off ( it's a stupid 2 part design.) He looks like a potato in a hat to me, and hence, is rather amusing for that alone.

Congrats. Your work has been mindlessly nicked by some journalists and printed with an article about the Olympics :)

DUDE. I'm not sure if this trumps yr real estate hotlink swap as far as wit goes, but for sheer, brute force hilarity this wins.

I owe you a g&t, good sir.

Hey,

Are you planning on selling T-Shirts with this thing on?

If you mind about copyright, would you "leak" a printable vectorized version of this somewhere so we could get that on shirts?

Woulda be great!

Hold onto your hats (and daughters)
.. it's not done yet. Now a Dutch TV guide has co-opted the same image in a sad excuse for 'journalism'.

My school librarian had plastered posters of the edited mascot photo all over the library as part of a Vancouver 2010 display. She obviously wasn't familiar with this particular meme.. We didn't notice it for at least two weeks but now I have an A3 size picture of Pedo-bear and friends in my room. :D thank you so much!

Re: Congrats!
Not only are you two months behind the curve, you are an idiot. The idea was mine, the mistake was Polish (and subsequently also Dutch, German, Lithuanian and Canadian.) The Gazeta Olsztyńska got the picture from me. Read the other comments here and see this post and the Wikipedia article to see a what really happened.
