Some undercover photos suggest perhaps not.
UPDATE: Aaron at Save the Humans has gone undercover to find the six mascots in the running to represent the '08 Beijing Olympics. They include:
- Timmy the Tank (so damn cute. When he’s animated and let loose, he paints the flag of China with the blood of protesters on his treads!)
- Pagey the Censored Web Page, and
- Teddy the Involuntary Organ Donor.
