On January 14, 2014 the Chicago Cubs unveiled their first ever mascot in team history.
The mascot is named Clark, and almost immediately the internet began to shred it to pieces. Many claimed that Clark the Bear looks familiar to the famous internet pedo bear.

The real story begins when Deadspin challenged their readers to bust out their Photoshop and do their worst on the new mascot. Saying “perverted furry, and it deserves to have horrible things done to it. Gawker art director Jim Cooke has already gotten this party started. Do your worst.” It didn’t take very long for the readers to make countless, funny adaptations to the bear that spread across the internet like fire.
Later that day Comcast sports network accidentally aired the wrong picture of the Bear for almost ten seconds. The reporters just laughed it off and they took down the picture as soon as they could.
It’s safe to say that this might be the only good thing we will see from Clark the Bear.
