Liverpool have a new mascot

I'd never really thought about this before, but Liverpool don't have a mascot like any good football club should.  BUT NOW THEY DO.  ARISE, WEIRD BIRD THING


His name is Mighty Red and he is a bird with teeth.  Or perhaps he's a creature from Alien and the teeth belong to a smaller creature that lives inside his beak.  If that is the case, it seems a bit unnecessarily terrifying, especially if this mascot is reserved for going to children's parties as it apparently is.  Even without the hidden creature, it's still actually quite a frightening beast - imagine waking up in the middle of the night and this thing is just standing next to your bed.  He's not doing anything particularly menacing, just standing there quietly.  Then he raises a finger to his mouth, mimes 'shhhhhh', takes a photograph of you on his polaroid and then just walks out the door and into the bathroom.  Now imagine it's your uncle.  I hate living here!
