The Chicago Cubs have a new mascot named Clark. Clark is a backwards-hat-wearing, baseball-holding, slightly-frightened-looking young bear.
While he’s not Steely McBeam or the new Pelicans mascot, the jury is still out on Clark. Well, maybe I shouldn’t say that, because Twitter absolutely leveled the cubbie bear. Here’s a smattering of the best reactions and tweets about the newest bear to hit Chi-town.

The Cubs’ new mascot is a nightmarish, perverted furry. http://t.co/2bIccQ6GvX

All I can think about on that damn Cubs mascot is a psychiatrist saying “show me where on the bear they touched you”

I’m OK with the Cubs mascot so long as his full name is Clark W Grizzwold

Lol @ the cubs. You deserve another 105 years of futility. http://t.co/6ehw8FXsX2

New Cubs mascot looks like it belongs on a sign in front of a diner that sells pies whole, or by the slice.

The Cubs had to find a mascot that was a bigger joke then the team on the field #Cubs

I would rather the #Cubs sign a decent free agent than bring in a new mascot…

Maybe if the Cubs spent more time signing players in the offseason than coming up with a mascot they wouldn’t look like such a AAA team

Cubs new mascot is a zombie of Steven Bartman?

What IS that mascot, Cubs? A modern likeness of Pedobear? I’m more offended by that than the Redskins.

I mean, I get WHY a Cubs mascot SHOULD be sad, but why in the world did the Cubs decide to acknowledge that?
