Well, This Was Inevitable
You can't take 10 steps in Beijing's OlympicLand without running into a Fuwa mascot of some sort, whether plush and skinny, plush and plump, massively inflatable or, most wondrously, inflatable with stubby legs, as seen here.
This means there are least four versions of five models of brightly colored frozen-in-happiness demon-headed mascots, who are all mixing in public spaces with international sports fans on holiday, who have cameras in every pocket and ready access to $1.25 beers.
Inevitably, bad things will happen. Inevitably, as we can see above, some fans will take a Fuwa's hand and place it near the most sensitive parts of the human body, for comedic effect.
I saw this scene outside the water polo venue, but I arrived a second too late to get a photo of the molester's female friend throwing her leg around the Fuwa's waist. I just hope no Fuwas ever find their way inside the Holland Heineken House.
