Mascots and Metaphor


Mascots for schools and teams can be considered metaphors. With that in mind, do the following.

  • Make a quick list of mascot names for schools around you, or names for professional teams, such as from
    the NFL.
  • In general, what properties do the mascots you have listed share? What makes them preferable choices over things like “bunnies” or “fawns”?
