Ladies and gentlemen, here’s Pedobear posing next to the Joe Paterno statue (pic)

Hoo boy. That’s awkward.

The photo above, sent in by an anonymous tipster to Deadspin, features somebody donned in the infamous Pedobear getup standing alongside the statue of Joe Paterno that sits outside Beaver Stadium. Once again, hoo boy. Given the outlandish nature of the photo, I’m going to have to re-evaluate my opinion of the disturbing Penn State video offered up by the purveyors of Taiwanese animation treatment, NMA World Edition.

It’s been reported that Penn State will decide the ultimate fate of the Joe Paterno statue within 7-10 days, but in light of this photo, as well as the banner seen circulating above the university’s campus on Tuesday, the folks in charge of the decision might want to speed up the process. The already-ugly scene is unlikely to get any better anytime soon.

One question: where were the Protectors of the Holy Paterno Relic when Pedobear made his appearance? Must have been before they took on guard duty.
