I don't know what you call those things, but I really want to kick that blue one in the balls. 

Those uniforms look like 20 year old flight attendant uniforms.

Yeah, agreed.

There was actual thought that went into making those creepy mascots. A LOT of thought. I was laughing reading this:

Every Olympics it gets worse. Uniforms that look like they're from a thrift store and mascots from Mars.

I'm still excited as hell, though.

The Mascot Story for Loc Nar:

"In October 2008 we advertised the opportunity to design the mascots on CompeteFor , the London 2012 procurement website. After more than 100 designers, artists and agencies applied, we spent the next few months selecting the best ideas and developing them based on this feedback.

When the final three ideas were tested with people all round the UK, we learnt that the British public didn't just want a character, they also want a story. We also tested the ideas with toy industry experts who agreed that Wenlock and Mandeville were the best choices.

Based on all the feedback we received, we selected Wenlock as the official Olympic mascot and Mandeville as the official Paralympic mascot for London 2012 in December 2009. The mascots were designed by London creative agency Iris."

Here's more (yawn):
