That top photo just cracks me up. I think it's the hands that do it - players all opting for the standard respectful hands behind back, except the mascot, perhaps because he can't reach properly. Plus the inappropriate eyes.

Beautiful, can't stop giggling.

Time to publicly acknowledge Jimmy Bignutz as the consistently funniest poster on OTF. In my mind anyway. Have no idea who he (or any of you) is, but that his interjections into any a thread are always welcomed at Rih HQ.

That shouldn't be funny, but just is. When I showed Mrs. Sits she said "Shouldn't they take their heads off?" But I explained they're not meant to be people so that would just be silly...

What's the Arsenal mascot? Not a cannon, that's for sure.

Raith's lion manages a stance of suitable solemnity :

That said, Gunnersaurus is still leading the pack for me- something about the arms round the shoulders, the fact that he actually manages to look genuinely sad, and maybe the fact that he's next to the shortest player in the side.

I think being the only living member of a group of species that have been extinct for millions of years give Gunnersaurus a perspective on loss that is unique in the mascot world.

arsenal may be an underperforming disappointment in a lot of respects. A bit of a mess in others, but in Gunnersaurus, they have a truly world class mascot.

here he is chillaxing like david cameron during a major world crisis



He dominates the tunnel. Even Roy Keane would think twice about making him cry like patrick Vieira



He's prepared to go through the public niceties before a match and show that he is the bigger mascot



But He knows what's what on the pitch


and he's not above a bit of pisstaking
[/img]

He's a calming influence on jack wilshire



He's smooth and sexual with the ladies



And he's not uncomfortable with male affection



and unlike arsenal's players he's perfectly at ease with silverware

Eagle-eyed OTFers will notice Lofty has been cropped out of the minutes silence photo on the BWFC website, save for his left eye.

no, he's mocking jamie carragher after inzaghi scored his 2nd goal in the 2007 cl final.

I'd imagine he's mocking the inability of Tyrannosaurus rex to do up their laces.

I've only just noticed that Gunnersaurus is wearing Nikes. I don't know why but it makes him slightly more absurd.
