Well, actually, two reasons: Phevos and Athena, the twin mascots of the soon-to-commence Summer Games in Greece.
Named for deities, P&A are already in the pantheon of reviled Olympic mascots (a hall that surely contains every single Olympic mascot since "Schuss" debuted at the Grenoble Winter Games in 1968).
From an AP account of how P&A have been received:
The pair were derided in various news articles, described as animated condoms and mutants from a nuclear meltdown. Their names were co-opted by anti-Olympic activists, who promptly firebombed two government vehicles in February.
Whole story here.
It seems likely that this pair will go down in history as even worse than the intergalactically detested from the 1996 Atlanta Games' Whatizit, memorably described by Bob Costas as ?a genetic experiment gone horribly, ghastly wrong."
