I think the Jolly Green Giant would be really cool.� No animal abuse wailing, realmascot differentiation, potential cooperation from a major food marketer.� Big, strong, green, friendly.� No costs of trying to keep a moose in captivity.�Maybe he could even have a feather.�Well worth looking into.

Not a bad idea, but, as an Ivy League institution, couldn’t Dartmouth go a bit more upscale? Is there a mascot for Rebel Yell?
