Goleo 06

I was watching TV the other night and a comment was made about the Mascot for the World Cup 2006.
Apparently the German people are not happy with the mascot, because he has no trousers on. I just kind of accepted it and thought no more about it.
Then yesterday morning,i was doing grocery shopping with the kids. They saw small versions of the mascot and managed to get me to put one each in the trolley. So what`s new about that???
In the car on the way home they were playing with the Goleos and talking about him.
I mentioned the fact that people, were not happy because of his lack of clothing on his lower half. My little boy then answered saying he didn`t need trousers/shorts anyway because he is a lion and has fur.
So there you go disgruntled germans, my 5 year old has the answer to why your mascot has on undies on....lol.
The logic of a small child- wonderful.

He doesn't have shorts cos he just had his bum whipped by the English and they kept them as a momento (ok...I have my coat....I'm leaving)!
