BADger


Recently I was at one of those classic old movie theaters. They try to do things a little different to distinguish themselves from the main line theaters.

For instance they still use those old style square red and white popcorn boxes; not the big round horse buckets you get today.

Another cool thing they offer are genuine s'mores! Hot whipped marshmallow with chocolate bits stirred in and sandwiched between two graham crackers.

I ordered one of each along with a coke. It was tricky to get it all into the theater. I carefully balanced the s'more on top of the striped popcorn box. When I held it up, it looked a little like this.

Mouth watering s'more on top of a box of popcorn.


You know, it's perfectly understandable for people to make fun of our Duck, It's a DUCK!  All Duck and Beaver fans have occasionally found themselves envying teams with a cougar, a wolverine or a badger. With a ferocious animal, your mascot design is off to a great start.

How does this . . .

. . . become this?
At least it should be. So where did Wisconsin go wrong with "Bucky"? At some point they apparently decided to go more cute than mean. What they ended up with was weird. The candy striped shirt gives me a headache. The beady eyes set in the malshapen head must confuse children.
"Daddy, is Bucky happy or sad? Did he get hit by a car?"
The face is made of discount fleece you can buy at JoAnn's Fabrics. It's cheeks swell out beyond it's ear-like protrusions like it had an allergic reaction to a rabies shot. You can fold laundry across the top of it's head.

Bucky is Buttugly.

And while having a badger for a mascot is cool, imagine doing the following with one . . . .



What? You were hoping for critical football X's and O's?
Wisconsin is big. Oregon is fast. Discuss.

More of that stuff later,
