Having sent former mascot Ole Colonel Reb off to the Old Racist Retirement Home after last lackluster season, the University of Mississississississississippi (Ole Miss) has announced an election between two mascot candidates - Rebel Bruiser and Rowdy Rebel shown below.
The election is limited to verifiable UM alumnae, students and the like.
Late breaking news alleges that Rowdy Rebel has groped women, cattle and has posted naked pictures of himself on a secret website.
Other allegations are that Rebel Bruiser's claims to mixed racial heritage are unsubstantiated.
Fans from certain other SEC schools, a bit miffed at not being allowed to vote on the new mascot, nominated this image instead:
UPDATE: Predictably, this is a popular topic. Dave spotted this site on which the UM athletic administration was being very mildly ridiculed. Ole Miss should be made to suffer for their unmitigated foolishness.
