Naming competition: The London 2012 Mascots

Here are the hideous London 2012 Mascots:


They are officially called Mandeville and Wenlock, but I bet we can find better names... such as Nick and Dave, or Mandleson and Hemlock. But given that apparently their single eye represents a TV camera that records everything they see perhaps they are best named CC and TV.

PS Is it just me or does the one on the right look like they might have peed in their pants?

May I be the first to point out the irony related to all the complaints about the Vancouver Olympics coming from the east end of the pond? ;-)

Also I can't decide if it is cheesy air guitaring, (is that a word ?) they are doing, or some "kick ass" star wars kid, Ninja come light sabre moves ?
