CANBERRA, Australia (Wireless Flash – FlashNews) – The oafish mascot chosen for the Vancouver Winter Olympics could cost Canadians a few gold medals.
Today (Feb. 12) the games will introduce “Quatchi,” a large, simple-minded mascot modeled after Canada’s famed Sasquatch.
According to cryptoid researcher Tim The Yowie Man – who once spotted the Australian bigfoot, Yowie, in his yard – Quatchi is all wrong for the Olympics.
Of all the hairy beasts in the world, Tim says Sasquatch is by far the clumsiest, slowest, and least agile.
The cumbersome creature is certainly not an athlete and looks “ridiculous” representing the Olympics.
Tim believes Canadian Olympians will be teased mercilessly by opponents for their “dopey” mascot, which will affect their performance and cost them gold medals in sports they’re usually good at.
This may give other countries a chance to win.
Tim says lake monsters, sea serpents, Yowie, or even the U.S. Bigfoot would’ve been better choices for mascots because they’re all known to be speedy. Wireless Flash News
