'Vicky and Bert' seems like a good starting point. Or 'Icy and Elle'

I think we've already discovered that Imperial students are c**p at thinking of decent names for things...

How about calling the male one Reggie, oh, hang on, that's taken...

Why, oh why did they get Lions, it's King's that have a lion as a mascot!

"DPCS Jenny Wilson said that the mascots were used at the BUCS championships and that as soon as they appeared at the fencing tournament the children watching began cheering for Imperial immediately."

We made children happy and it only cost ?10,000! Yay!

In all fairness, Sport Imperial is performing quite strongly and has generated quite a lot of income for itself...

9. so.

write a fair article, not a white-washed, 'government approved' article.

Mar 22 2010 17:35

This doesn't mean I've given up trying to find out how much was spent on the mascots... ;o)

13. Oh!   
Mar 22 2010 22:52

How about "Olympics" and "ID Cards" after the great government money-wasters of our time.

Failing that "C**to" and "Bawbag".

14. why

I believe they were 500 quid each and, Lawrence, you are quite right in saying that Sport Imperial creates a decent income for itself. They also generally spend far less than planned in their budget. The problem is that none of this excess money goes back to the IC sports clubs. They rather spend it on these "mascots" ... oh dear ...
