A Use For Barney
Don’t think this is an issue?
Go to Google, and type in Dinger. Guess what the first suggestion Google gives you is?
Seriously…When your stupid antics are a higher suggestion than your own name, you’re an idiot. Or you’re Charlie Sheen. Not that the two are mutually exclusive.
Mascots may be one of those parts of the game that hardcore adult fans dislike, and they seem to be around more to be the butt of jokes than to cause actual, intentional laughs. That’s why the Krazy Krab lived. Say what you will about the Giants in the 1980’s, but they were ahead of their time in Snarkiness.
But Dinger goes beyond bad taste and cheesiness. Get his purple butt and jelly-bean colored head out of the game, and keep him in the commercial breaks where he belongs.
