On a Monday morning even the best of us are struggling to keep awake, thankfully Partick Thistle then unvieled their new mascot which would prevent any of us from sleeping. The terrifying creation dubbed as Kingsley was designed by Turner Prize nominated artist David Shrigley, as part of a new sponsorship deal.
Rightfully so, the reactions were mainly poking fun at the ridiculous creation.

Some even going so far as to declare it a drug warning.

The tellytubby baby and even Jose’ Bosingwa’s monobrow were even pulled into it.

At least the outlook over the next few days is looking better for Partick Thistle.

Looking like a demonic creation already, one twitter user completed the look.

Designed to intimidate opponents, it appears Kingsley has done the opposite and made Partick Thistle a laughing stock. Unfortunately for Partick fans, they are now stuck with easily one of the worst mascots in history.
