The worst Mascot EVER!

So you think that you have seen it all when it comes to bad mascots? I would say that you are wrong until you have met Petey the Pee Cup. Yes you read that correctly folks, Petey the Pee cup. It seems that HealthPartners inc was having trouble getting their message out to Gen X so they decided to create a mascot to help. A giant 7 foot tall specimen jar of urine. You must see this video to believe me. Petey even has his own website and is on facebook. Next thing you know he will be hanging out on blogger? Hey Jay, do you want Petey as a part of Bastard Nation??

Does anyone else think this is just a bad idea? Oh and if the pee cup wasn't enough pretty soon he is going to be joined by "Pokey the syringe" soon to become the mascot to heroin addicts everywhere.... Yeesh.

Yep...pretty bad.

Lu' said...

HA! that video is funny. After Pokey are they going to have Swabey? Pokey could also be a big rubber glove, a mascot for Proctologists.

Doc said...

I think their next mascot is going to be Hepatitis Heidi.

Micky-T said...

I think a large big toe, little arms sticking out with the toenail all yellow, crusty and hooked would make a great...

Fungus Toe Joe

At first site I thought it was a Hellman's Mayonnaise jar! Pretty bad. What's next? Stevie the Stool Sample?

Doc said...

No... Stewie the stool sample

Doc said...

Mic BTW Ewwww !!

Doc, Didn't you date a girl in college nicknamed Hepatitis Heidi?

....And You Will Know Me By The Size of My Mountain Cat... said...

Check out this mascot

Doc said...

Doc, Didn't you date a girl in college nicknamed Hepatitis Heidi?


No... as I have told you every time you ask me that it was my fraternity bro Trigger who dated her. LOL

....And You Will Know Me By The Size of My Mountain Cat... said...

I think I met her once. She was kinda cute...you know aside from the disease.

Dana said...

I don't know Doc, Petey certainly did get your attention, didn't he?? *wink*

Karen said...

That is just wrong. I know actually beinging the urine jar has to be the low point of anyones life.

Lu' said...

Check out this mascot

I didn't know what the f*&k that was. Oh and ew!

Lu' said...

I thought for a minute it was a big green weener with wheels, ha ha ha

Doc said...

Hush Dana...

I am with you Karen.

I thought about the same thing Lu... BTW - Happy birthday again. HEY EVERYBODY It's NU LU's Birthday... the big 5 - 0 !!

WNG said...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY NU LU!!!

Heather Mills could turn her wooden leg into a mascot for Crazy Gold Diggers, Inc.

As American as Apple Pie said...

Happy Birthday Lu!!!

The whole mascot thing is out of hand. Newberry College (and others like it) had to change theirs from an Indian b/c they were offensive. I'm sorry...its been that for decades and NOW you have a problem with it? BTW--I'm part Cherokee and have no issues with this. It's supposed to be a symbol of strength like a warrior. I would be flattered. It sure the hell beats having a pee cup for a mascot. *end rant*

Oh, and what's the women's mascot...Specs the speculum? Mammy the mammogram?

Doc said...

Have a great Mem Day G... Nice Heather Mills reference... I like it.


I was with you until you came up with those mascots Apple... Ewwww !

....And You Will Know Me By The Size of My Mountain Cat... said...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY NU LU!!!!!!!!!!!!

Lu' said...

Thanks for the Birthday wishes y'all. So far so good. Hubby gifted with jewlery :)

wng, how about if they took a replica of HM's leg and used it for a handle an a new line of metal detectors.

aaaaPie, I wonder if Spec's would have a cold and icy voice or a Barry White type voice.

Leighann said...

Could you imagine dating the guy who dresses up as the piss cup?

Try brining him home to your parents. What a first impression!

Real Live Lesbian said...

Poor guy. I'm betting he doesn't speed date.

Cute girl: So, what do you do for a living?

Petey: next

runningwildkids said...

Nice. The things that these people come up with never seems to amuse me anymore!

Knight said...

Oh look big and little piss cups! Adorable.

I used to have to dress up as McGruff the Crime Dog. "Take a bite out of crime." I had to dress up for all kinds of events and the kids would keep hugging me. It was horrible. I was just a dog in a trench coat though. Not a urine sample.

Doc said...

I don't know why but for some reason the thought of Knight dressed up as McGruff the crime dog sends me into fits of laughter!

BWAAAHAHAAHAHAAAAAA !!

If you have any pics you must share them .... :p

Jay said...

And here we all thought that a job that included a paper hat and having to use the phrase "do you want fries with that?" was the bottom of the barrel.

Happy birthday LU!!!

Dianne said...

Happy Birthday Lu!

I'm thinking of investing in the growth industry of "exciting medical props" that will "humanize the medical experience"

I'm hoping 'Vinny the Vaginal Speculum' will be a big hit!

....And You Will Know Me By The Size of My Mountain Cat... said...

How about Ernie the Enema Bag?

Lu' said...

Thanks :)

Corky the catheter

Pricu the IV

WNG said...

Lu' - that would be AWESOME. Obviously you just get more brilliant with age.
Doc- you too! I'm just pumped to be the first one to make the reference this time.
aaaapie - In college I was in a production of The Vagina Monologues. We decorated an examination table and auctioned it off (fur trimmed stirrups, etc). Because we are twisted we bedazzled a speculum as well- we called it Sparkly the Spec.

Odat said...

Visiting from Dianne's to say Hey! Pretty funny stuff ya got here.....
Peace

Knight said...

Nope. NO pictures. I hope.

lol @ Corky the catheter
Nice one
Happy birthday Lu!

Doc said...

LOL with these names maybe I should have saved this for a Tuesday Word game !!

Welcome Odat... Please make yourself at home... your picture is quite hypnotic!

Crap no pics of Knight as McGruff :-(

Talisman said...

Can you imagine being the person wearing the pee cup costume? "So what do you do for work?" "oh, I'm Petey the pee cup." I wonder how often they'd actually get laid.

Aunt Becky said...

OH.MY.GOD.

Now I HAVE seen it all.

Lu' said...

Thanks wng:)
Thanks knight:)

Bunkie said...

HealthPartners is the insurance my company uses. I REALLY, REALLY hope they don't send this mascot to open enrollment this year. I'll quit first!!

Sitting in Silence said...

Ewwwwwwwwwwwww...I hate to be the one to admit this BUT....Pee cups in OZ are clear with a yellow lid...

The blue ones with a white jar are for S-Men...LMAO...if you get my drift....

So that picture to me is pretty funny HA HA Ha..need to take a copy to work LMAO....
