Made in China. Sort Of.

China is quite excited to be hosting the increasingly useless Olympics in Beijing this summer. China sees it as a way to influence the world’s opinion about their country. (Psst, hey China. If you really want to change the world’s perception of you, responsible growth and human rights might be a better way to go. Think about it.)

Anyway, in honor of the upcoming Games, I’m taking a quick poll. Which do you think is worse – that China is erecting statues that are near replicas of American icon, Mickey Mouse, and then vehemently denying that they are supposed to look like Mickey…

…or the fact that they choose the freakshows below as their official mascots (for those that don’t know, they’re called “Fuwas”)
