Campaign Promise


I was researching husky mascots and logos today and I found an interesting article about the fact that the University of Washington Husky is really a Malamute. Here's a quote:

Malamutes make better mascots than Huskies since they are not as high strung and easier to control in large crowds.

This is my promise to you, when I am President, mascots will correspond to the appropriate animals. In other words, there will be Washington Malamutes.

Seriously, why not? If the Washington humans feel that Malamutes are superior to Huskies as live representatives of their mascot, why not just call themselves the Washington Malamutes?

By the way, for those of you who care about my stupid Human, she's not making hummus this weekend. She said that she's not sure which recipe she wants to use. Sometimes it takes her forever to make decisions!

How about in the movies, when they feature a "wolf" and you know it's really a grey and white Sibe? Any thoughts?

Turbo you are so smart and handsome too!


Holly said...

Ya know, before I read your post, I was looking at that dog, and the first thing I thought was "that's a Mal!"

I think they use us cuz humans are stoopid and don't know the difference. And yes, we are much calmer than you Sibes. After all, just look at spazzo Samuel.

I'm just sayin'

Hey! Who you calling high strung? Hey!! Heyheyhey! Is that a crowd? Oh my gosh, I love crowds!!!! Hey! Hey crowd! Heyheyhey!!!!!

PS- Tubey tell your mom I hope that my tales of spewing chickpeas and tahini all over the ceiling didn't deter her from her intended plans!

Things are starting to make sense. We moved up here and there is all this Washington Huskies stuff all over, but we never see any huskies. It must be husky discrimination. I'm surprised we are allowed to live in the state since they only want malamutes. Next thing will be that huskies will have to run at the back of the pack and let malamutes in the front and then we'll have to drink out of separate buckets too! This must be stopped!


Simcha said...

Actually I am a Sibe and I live with a Mal. She is way more high strung than I'll ever be. You should see her "go diva" on us.

Technically, Malamutes are huskies.(as someone corrected me once)
