What's With The Olympic Mascots?

This, friends, is Fu Niu Lele, the official mascot of the 2008 Beijing Paralympic Games.

Like all Olympic mascots, it's some full fledged nightmare fuel, or, as Dejuiced puts it, kind of a glowing cow.

Dejuiced actually implies there's something wrong with having a mascot for the Paralympics be able to stand — or even hop on one leg — though we think it's probably still OK, considering it might be more offensive to have the mascot in a wheelchair or something.

Seriously, though ... was Keggy not available?
