Mascot Update

As regular readers of TCH know, the department's proposed mascot is a scone, and yes, the costume is coming along nicely.

Would-be wearers of the costume (select untenured professors and specially chosen graduate students) who have expressed reservations might consider the hardships of other mascots.

For example, Drumstick.

Like many animals who advertise their brethren, Drumstick is keenly aware that things could have gone otherwise for him, and thus he cheerfully performs his duties, serving (no pun intended) as the mascot for Zehnder's Restaurant---world famous for chicken dinners!---in Frankenmuth, Michigan.

Scones, take note! After all, given the choice being being poultry and being pastry, who would choose the former?

  1. Not to mention that, with the poultry, you're advocating the consumption of your own species so that the cannibalism is only slightly displaced. What would Freud say?
