[NSFW] Regional Sports Network Shows Fake Cubs Mascot in All His Drawn Glory

The image was actually from a contest Deadspin held inviting readers to “Do Something Horrible to the Cubs’ New, Perverted Mascot [NSFW].”

According to the site, Gawker art director Jim Cooke started everyone off. Then Comcast showed it to its viewers.
