This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

Well, my first bet would be my own state's Indiana State University Sycamores.  Here is what they are named after:



Weak, man.  Weak.

But Larry Bird played there.

Soccer: Gei├čbock Hennes from 1. FC Cologne. Not every sports team has a real goat on the field - and trust me, the fans of about every other soccer team make fun of it :D

Our national soccer team has a semi-official mascot, courtesy of a certain sponsor:

Urg. Uruguay did a lot of fouls in the past, but this one isn't a penalty that any national team should bear. And I always thought Goleo, our mascot for the world championship 2006 was unbeatable dumb:

Evergreen State College's mascot is the geoduck.

That's right.  A big fucking clam that looks like an orange, swollen penis.  

There's even a fight song:

"Go, Geoducks, go!
Through the mud and the sand let's go!
Siphon high, squirt it out, swivel all about.
Let it all hang out!
Go, Geoducks, go!
Stretch your necks when the tide is low!
Siphon high, squirt it out, swivel all about.
Let it all hang out!"

Yeah.  It's a wierd hippy school.

OK, I think it is safe for me to enter this conversation since we've found a mascot that is definitely worse than, um, nevermind.

Anyway, what the heck is a banana slug?

Is that thing for real? Exactly what kind of fighting spirit does a slug invoke in its fans?

Trees are pretty lame as well (but things that grows on trees are fine).

The geoduck is hilarrious. Just what is a geoduck?
