Beijing Olympic Mascot Designer Blamed for Natural Disasters in China

We now believe that an extra level of hell has been added exclusively for one Mr. Han Meilin, the designer behind the Beijing Olympics mascots. You might recall that last month we were talking about his struggles in trying to create these fuzzy little creatures, and how he he had to go through around half a trillion revisions before he got them approved. Now we learn that a growing number of people in China have started letting superstitions get the better of them and believe that Meilin’s Olympic mascots are the fulfiller of horrible prophecies or somehow responsible for the recent natural disasters that have plagued the nation. How’s that for a horrible job? Not only are your clients a huge pain to deal with, but now you’re getting tangentially blamed for the deaths of thousands of people.
