Kind of weird choosing a mascot that half the population will be unable to find

Every pitch meeting needs to have someone with a dirty mind to tell people when something looks even mildly inappropriate.

My gf thinking of kids names and I'm sitting there with my idiot brain coming up with insults or jokes for everyone of them, told her she can have a name if I can't make fun of it in less than a minute


kpmelomane21 t1_iwi29o1 wrote

That is exactly what you need to be doing. Kids are creative, and mean. You also need to consider initials because my friend was gonna name her son Andrew with a middle name Scott and their last name starts with S...

Lol that's how we settled on kids names too

I got reprimanded at my internship for “sexually harassing” someone. Our boss was telling us about how they were creating a new initiative titled BBC. At lunch, with the other interns, I told one of my male friends about how bad an idea this was and how people will make fun of it. We started laughing and a female intern asked what we were laughing about. I told her. Next day I am asked to go to our bosses office. He tells me the female intern complained to him that I made sexual comments to her. So, I had to apologize to her and the other female interns. Anyways…they didn’t listen to me and the city got some good memes out of it.

PSA: If your clitoris is the size of a small vehicle, red, and has eyeballs, please seek medical attention.

Should we even keep doing Olympic mascots? Every time they just get criticized for this, that, or the other reason.


passwordsarehard_3 t1_iwgwgfg wrote

Better question is should we keep the Olympics. I love the spirit but everything I hear about it reeks of corruption and graft.

They need to build like four permanent facilities and stop moving out around the country.

Especially when it goes to an underdeveloped nation the facilities end up crumbling as they can't be supported and during the event they have to starve the populace to have enough money to throw the events

I’ve never related to anything more in my life.

“When is this due? Tomorrow?!? Fuck it, unipod on a ski.”

“at last understood what one looks like”…. that is not at all what a clit looks like what? Is there something i’m missing?


coleslawww307 t1_iwgne1u wrote

Look up the clit + its internal structure. Looks exactly the same. Not a lot of people realize the clit is way bigger than it looks


Shabster0 t1_iwgty1n wrote

Omg i’m so dumb I didn’t even consider internal 😭😭 thank you

Gamebird8 t1_iwj5of5 wrote

Don't worry.... I was super skeptical as well... but including the internal portion of the gland... it is much more believable


OldBob10 t1_iwha5az wrote

You’re missing the obvious fact that the people who are complaining couldn’t find a clit if given a flashlight and a map.

>But in the inevitable social media debate around the clitoris-shaped mascots, one secondary school teacher said their simplistic triangular design could reinforce society's vague notion of the under-discussed part of the female anatomy, suggesting biology teachers be brought in to redesign them

Wait, wut?


ash_274 t1_iwgj2h5 wrote

They’re supposed to be hats.

Some people on social media say, “you know, they kind of look like a clitoris” and this teacher responded, “well, it should be redesigned to look more anatomically correct”

They’re anthropomorphized hats.


PermanentTrainDamage t1_iwh6u89 wrote

If the French are going to pick a hat to represent them, wouldn't the beret be more iconic?


ash_274 t1_iwhrv71 wrote

They looked at their history and asked themselves, "What were the people wearing when they were lopping off bourgeoisie heads?"

No, one of the main symbols of France is La Marianne - meant to be the allegory of the French Republic, the democracy that followed the revolution. Most paintings of the revolution have her in it. And she wears that red peasant’s hat. The beret is a stereotype, sure. But has no meaning in France.


AUniquePerspective t1_iwkoto8 wrote

La Mariane always has her tits out which is why so many people haven't noticed her hat.

Considering these look nothing like a clitoris that’s just further proof that most guys know absolutely nothing about female anatomy.

OldBob10 t1_iwh9kha wrote

Even assuming you accept the desire of the committee to “embody the French spirit by offering something new”, this is still reaching back further into the past than the Eiffel Tower. Also, the Phrygian cap is historically associated with The Terror. You know, show trials, “the national razor”, beheadings, etc. Great publicity..!

I mean, if they wanted to dip into “the heroic past” they could have gone with an image of Charlemagne. Yeah - whatever happened to that guy..? 😊


Raistline1 t1_iwgh44v wrote

Makes perfect sense. Like the Olympics, no one ever gives a shit where the clitoris is anymore.

Why would you self own like this?


Raistline1 t1_iwgvi4p wrote

They ruin cities in which they are held. Often times people are forced to move to make room for venues that are never to be used again. The athletes are not well compensated and if they do not give a perfect performance could face financial ruin for representing their country. There is an unneeded burden put on the local environment and is just a major scam at this point. Most people don't even care anymore, which is evident in the viewership of the 2020 Olympics being dropped by half of that of 2016. So yeah, I'll don't give a shit where the Olympics are.
