Students at the University of Mississippi voted
yesterday to help select a new mascot. The previous mascot, Colonel Reb
, a white-bearded old man with a cane and wide-brimmed hat, was removed
from sporting events in 2003. There is now a student-led effort
"Star Wars" character Admiral Ackbar
(video of Ackbar saying "It's a trap!" here
) as the new mascot. This effort includes a Facebook group
and twitter account
. The slogan is, "This time it's not a trap." Officials at the University say "No chance
." Meanwhile, the "Save Colonel Reb Foundation
" has sponsored a series of radio ads, including this one.

A dog's (or cat's) life.
It's very common in Iraq for soldiers to adopt local dogs
as mascots, such as "PFC Conner"
. Unfortunately, there are new policies in place to kill local dogs and cats
for health reasons. Often, even mascots are destroyed
, damaging morale in the process.
is a small organization that is helping to bring mascots back to the U.S. for safety, but this can cost over $1000 per mascot for shots, boarding, fees, and the plane ride back home. It's their hope to save dozens of mascots
before they are killed, but Military Mascots
may be running out of time.

Newsworthy it's not -- but hey, it's the weekend: what's with mySimon
's creepy mascot? Looks like a cross between MTV's Carson Daily ... and a pod person (if there's a distinction).
