Best mascot contest?

By now everybody has heard of the "Fighting Whities".

But their mascot is really lame. How about it, designers? - this calls for a contest.

My entry would probably look something like Wake Forest's mascot, or maybe Vanderbilt's. I've heard us honkies described as people who get out of the shower to pee, but I'm not sure how to work that in.

I suppose some will suggest that the only fitting mascot for the "Fighting Whities" would be Klansmen. Yeah, now we're talking. The team could wear white robes and hoods, and burn crosses at pep rallies.

Or how about Nazis? - think of the cool uniforms and logo designs they could use.

And best of all, using one of these might clarify to them just how stupid their contention is - that using Indians as mascots somehow demean Indians.
