College Kids are Hilarious

Not sure UW-La Crosse officials knew what they were getting into when they used an open ballot to select a name for the school’s eagle mascot. They named it "Colbert." Yep, after this guy.

Over 3,100 students voted and Colbert took 44% of the vote. “Ernie” came in second, while “Edgar” and “Screech” tied for third. (Source.) Apparently, the name Eddie had been selected earlier, but the National Rifle Association claims to have trademarked the name for its gun-safety mascot. And you don’t mess with the NRA. (Source.)

Everyone here loves Mr. Stephen Tyrone Colbert, but come on. How did Screech lose?
