Live and learn

This made me laugh so hard that tears were rolling down my face in the office. It even got CrimeNotes -- a noted office sourpuss -- to laugh out loud at his place of business.

The best part, I think, is the contribution from the blogger at the end. The reformulations are limited only by the number of Division I-A schools and idiomatic expressions of indifference or resignation. And raptors, I suppose.

Personally, I would go with Washington State, A Steller's Sea Eagle and "Who'da thunk it?" But that's just me.

In certain UK home nations, this is what they think of when they think of the Palouse.

Actually, I think you have this confused with the Minnesota State Screaming Eagles.

To be fair, that bird is quite a bit more intimidating than a Buckeye.

anything is better than the testicle with legs OSU calls a mascot.

Todd said...

Man, football season hasn't even started yet!

I haven't been paying attention. Meg, are you a Michigan fan, or just a generic OSU hater?

dmbmeg said...

A Buckeye fan once threatened my friend at a bar in Chicago.

I just assume all Buckeye fans are like that. SO yeah, I guess I am a generic OSU hater.

Flop said...

Todd, you are an extreme outlier among Buckeyes fans. I attribute it to your Cleveland roots.

I attribute it to Todd being a reasonable person. You have a friend with Cleveland roots who didn't even go to the fucking school, and he seems to go Mr. Hyde every time the topic surfaces.
