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!
