Kurt Snibbe wants Olympic mascot ideas!

The official mascots of the 2012 Summer Olympics, as you can see from the photo above, are unique, strange, befuddling ... and, on many levels, disturbing.

We can probably all agree, however, that they are terrible.

Clearly, ESPN Playbook needs to design suitable replacements for these monstrosities, and that's where you come in, dear readers.

Please describe your best ideas for a new London Olympics mascot in the comments section of this blog post, and Playbook artist Kurt Snibbe will illustrate his favorite submissions later in the week.

We'll accept nominations through 7 p.m. ET on Tuesday. Enter early and often, and thanks in advance for playing.
