You're right - Izzy was the worst mascot so far (too early to include London - they might roll out some better version before the games are over). Second has to be Athena, the beautiful goddess of wisdom. The piece of cr ap the Athenians used for the mascot was neither wise nor beautiful.
But who cares about art? The primary motive behind choosing mascots is to sell reproductions to [s]suckers[/s] kids and adoring fans.
When rich or powerful people propose a change, it is designed to make them richer or more powerful.
