The question of mascot was raised earlier, but still, I believe, remains unresolved.

Several animals were proposed. I recall the sloth, the bear and the penguin. Of course, numerous references to the dog have also been made, but not as a candidate for mascot.

It came to me in my sleep---perhaps another possible mascot:


Let us consider the options:

Sloth--quite appropriate, particulary its noctunal nature, or more specifically, that it sleeps during the day, and its speed of movement.

Slug--also quite good. I have used this term to refer to my lumpish tendencies ("I was a total slug all weekend"). The slug is slow moving and appears immobile. I am not sure about the slime aspect, but perhaps that has its parallels in lumpism.

Bear--evokes the retreat to the cave and hibernation. And, it can be both lovable and ferocious, which speaks to the possibility of moodiness. Yes, quite good, as well. But what do we make of its summer behavior?

Penguin--stands around a lot, limited limb movement. But, despite looking rather immobile sometimes, have you seen how perky they look in the water? Most importantly--too upright.

I humbly request that this matter be placed before the people.

And, in the interest of avoiding scandalous irregularities in voting, which could lead to a lengthy era of recounting and lawsuiting, I propose the substitution of all butterfly ballots with either rattlesnake ballots or polarbear ballots.

Thank you, kind lumps.
