In an absolutely fantastic moment in live TV history, CSN Washington made one of the greatest, albeit inappropriate, blunders that we have ever seen.
On Monday, the Chicago Cubs unveiled their new mascot — Clark the Cub — which aims to appeal to young kids. The mascot looked cute to me and like something that would appeal to youngsters, but the internet got a hold of it and turned it into a big joke, apparently forgetting that the mascot is for, you know, young children.
Anyway, Deadspin sunk their claws into the mascot and said it looked like a “perverted furry.” They then turned it into a meme and encouraged readers to Photoshop dirty images of the mascot, leading to the handy piece of artwork with Clark’s twig and gigs sticking out.
Then, in some amazing twist of incredible fate, Deadspin’s inappropriate photoshop of Clark the Cub ended up on CSN’s broadcast when they did a segment to decide which was the worse mascot: Clark or the New Orleans Pelican. The reaction from host Nicole Darin was priceless.
“Also worth noting … he doesn’t wear any pants! Uhh I think that’s a gag photo,” Darin quickly pointed out.
Darin and her co-host smoothly transitioned into a discussion about whether Yogi Bear wears pants, unlike Clark, whose junk was ever-present in the photo.
Oh man, that was just fantastic on every single level.
