This thing belongs in the V&A and is probably about as attractive to children as an afternoon round at Michael Jackson's pad.

Named Scrumpy and slightly resembling a Robin, this big brown bird looks like the last remnant of City's lower league days.

The actual scrumpy on sale in the fine city may well be the reason behind this odd design and if you've ever had a few jars of the stuff you'll know why.

What really gets us is the legs; a strange, swollen, yellow scene that is half rotten bandages and half chubby old lady. We've no doubt that put side by side with any of the Gully family this guy would look a bit special.  Come on City, give Scrumpy a new look!
