No prizes for vocabulary

The students at Oregon Episcopal School are competing in a national "most unique mascot" contest. "Most unique"? No. The balloting ends (mercifully) at noon today.

"We worked hard to come up with a very unique mascot. While it was more unique than the other schools' mascots, it just wasn't the most unique."

There, of course, is only one degree of uniqueness. And, by the way, there is only one s in daylight saving time.

All I could think of was that South Park episode from 2004 when the ballot boxes were stuffed for electing a school mascot, leaving the choice between a turd sandwich and a giant douche

Another unique - but undesirable - mascot was the one that recently left Portland City Council Chambers and has been assumed by the City Club – that of the rat.

Remember the Native American intramural team that posted this one?


What's good for the goose . . .

My favorite is still the purple kangaroo at Sedro-Wooley HS but I suppose if indigenous Australians ever complain, they'll have to get rid of it.

For several years MSNBC offered "a fuller spectrum" of sub-optimal grammar.
