Olympic mascots already in the pound shop
Day 5 of the London Olympics and there are already mountainous displays of its spectacularly ill-conceived one-eyed official mascots, Wenlock and Mandeville, on sale at Hoxton Poundland - at the knock-down price of £1 each!
Update (8 August): A colleague attended athletics events at the main Olympic stadium last Saturday, and was mightily impressed. He said Wenlock and Mandeville mascots matching the description of the ones in Hoxton Poundland were on sale in the stadium shop for £12.
