The Friendlies, Mascots of the Beijing Olympics

|The Friendlies or Fuwa are the mascots of the Beijing Olympic Games. Superstitious Chinese have linked the recent earthquake and other misfortunes to the five Olympic Mascots. The South China Morning Post said "Gossip sites are full of speculation that four of the five mascots have fulfilled prophecies of doom with one more connected to the Yangtze River still to come." Traditionally the number eight is lucky in China, however the recent troubles have all happened on a date where the digits add up to eight.|
Predictably this could mean trouble for the opening day of the Beijing Olympics which was chosen particularly because of the Chinese lucky number eight.
Let's see what you know about the mascots. Have fun and Good Luck!
