Maribeth says, "That isn't that funny."

I don't mind. I just thought it was interesting. Why does everything have to be funny? Let's shed our collective obsession with things being funny.

Maribeth says a better punchline would have been, "So why are condoms named Trojans?"

Isn't there a school cheer that goes,
"Two, four, six eight,
we know how to integrate!"

I'm just saying, you don't want your condoms fighting valiantly for a losing cause.

Haha, I like Maribeth's revised punchline.

Grace, I can't say that I have ever heard that cheer. MIT and Caltech are supposed to have mathematical cheers about e and pi and so forth, but I'm not sure I have really heard those either (as opposed to read about them).

On the one hand, many mascots simply make no sense: Boll Weevils, banana slugs, hillbillies, etc.

But the various Native American inspired teams show that fighting valiantly and not winning is okay. I mean, how many Seminoles are still terrorizing the Southeast? (Pirates and Buccaneers too, for that matter)

Hillbillies rule.

I like the idea of the Athenians as a mascot and am disappointed that no university has chosen them. The University of Georgia is even located in Athens! Yet they went with Bulldogs instead???
