The incorrect mascot is on the far right

The Gazeta Olsztynska published an image showing the bear alongside genuine Olympic mascots Quatchi, Sumi, Miga and Mukmuk to illustrate a feature about the Games.

It appears that the newspaper lifted the picture from Google Images, unaware that it had been created as a prank by Michael Barrick, a Canadian artist and graphic designer.

Pedobear, who is on the far right of the picture, was originally devised by members of the anarchic 4chan message board as a way of mocking users who expressed a sexual interest in young people.

Since then a tasteless internet trend or meme has emerged in which users insert the bear into other photos in a contest to create the most inappropriate composite image.

Lol I just read that Zach Parise got hurt, any word on how serious? It wouldn't be cool if you guys had to go into the Olympics without him.

Also I keep hearing about this "Lindsey Vonn" chick who's supposed to be the top skiier there, but she has some injury and they don't know if she'll be able to go. I feel like this might be smoke and mirrors so she can come in and dominate and then be the new Carrie Strug. Thoughts?

I haven't heard much about it, but also hear Getzlaf is injured and Team Canada hasn't made a determination on him yet.

Yes a source of much concern for me. I heard on the radio last night that the MRI is negative, but still, I'd prefer a 100% Steven Stamkos over a 90% Getzlaf. Gonna be really disappointed if he can't go though, he's a horse.

Oh I didn't know they made that official, I had heard him mentioned.

Dang, would have preferred Stamkos, that kid's electric.

1. Who will light the Olympic torch? -- Up until Thursday night, former hockey star Wayne Gretzky had been the clubhouse favorite to light the Olympic cauldron. The Great One arrived in Vancouver earlier in the week, his father already served as a torchbearer and Gretzky himself had dodged all questions about the lighting of the cauldron. He also was the choice of Canadians, earning the most votes in a poll asking who should be the final torchbearer. But late Thursday night VANOC chief John Furlong said definitively that the Ontario native and 2002 gold medal-winning coach will not light the cauldron. This development perhaps opens up the door for Betty Fox, the mother of the late cancer activist Terry Fox. The Vancouver native, whose statue rests outside the venue for the Opening Ceremony, raised millions for research of the disease with his runs in the 1970s. Since his death in 1981, his mother has kept his memory and foundation alive. We predict that Gretzky will be the penultimate torchbearer and hand-off to Fox, who will light the flame.

I was just woken up about 30 minutes ago by the loudest party (at 8am). Cars, sirens, people, everything. The Olympic torch relay was my wake up call today. I never thought I'd be there in person to be so thoroughly annoyed and excited at the same time. Picked a good year to go to school here.

They should, but I don't see the Winter Olympics coming back after Denver rejected the Winter Olympics way back then.
