Ole Miss mascot suggestions

With word that a Star Wars character is being considered as the new mascot at Ole Miss, it's clear someone has broken out the hallucinogens in Oxford.

In the spirit of chasing a Vicodin with a shot of vodka, here are my top 10 candidates to replace Colonel Reb:

10. Colonel Sanders

9. Sgt. Hulka

8. Pvt. Gomer Pyle

7. General George S. Patton

6. John Grisham

5. Hannah Storm, but only in her Catholic school girl outfit

4. Tony Kornheiser (at the rate he's going, he could use the gig)

3. Conan O'Brien (ditto)

2. Billy Brewer

1. Dulymus Jenod "Deuce" McAllister

This might seem like a silly college prank, but Ackbar was the leader of the Rebel alliance fleet, so not only is it totally totally awesome, it actually makes perfect sense.  None of Dodd's suggestions really have anything to do with rebels.

Not to mention he was referenced in an episode of 30 Rock - when Liz Lemon is talking to her boyfriend over the video feed on her computer and sees how she looks, she says, "Are my eyes really that far apart? I look like Admiral Ackbar."

Conan doesn't need the gig, you CBS homer. Letterman sucks by the way, unless you're old as hell. 

You wish you were sitting on a $33mil buyout and will go back to making $15-20mil/year come September 1st.

If you want to support Ole Miss, you're doing a pretty pathetic job.  Cutting on one of the original Star Wars films just makes you look ignorant.  Ackbar is a character still used today in numerous settings (besides the ones the second poster mentioned, he was just featured in a segment of The Daily Show with Jon Stewart using his "It's a trap" line in reference to the Republicans and Obama's health care summit).  If you're really an Ole Miss fan, I'd keep my mouth shut instead of embarrassing them.

Just you wait, one of the final options for selection will be Ole Miss Admirals.

Everyone knows who Admiral Ackbar is...even Abraham Lincoln mentioned him in his inauguration speach.You probably never seen Star Wars because you're too busy watching Lifetime movies and the Oxygen channel while you beg your doctor to give you a pap smear.Come on!...and stuff.

Who are what in the he– is Admiral Ackbar? And, for that matter, who freakin’ cares? Apparently, he’s some stupid Star Wars figure for which I’m very proud to say I NEVER saw nor will ever see a Star Wars film.

Unbelievable even if it could be true ‘nuf said.

Hotty Toddy, Go Rebs!!! Great comeback vs Allbarn!!!
