Fake Bucky Badger at Capitol protests

Postby Beaver » Thu Sep 12, 2013 8:36 pm

Hmmm...is it a liberal trying to make Badger football fans support the protests? Or just some guy pulling a prank for the fun of it?

UW: Bucky Badger not participating in Capitol protests
http://www.wkow.com/story/23418660/2013 ... l-protests

"The University of Wisconsin-Madison says any Bucky Badger seen protesting at the state Capitol is a knockoff of the school's mascot.
Recently, someone in a Bucky costume has been taking part in the noon-time sing-along at the Capitol."

So will Erwin be dumb enough to have his staff pictured cuffing Bucky? I bet "yes."

Wouldn't be the first time Bucky was arrested.

Or writes and is quoted. 'Cause we all know badgers can't talk.

From the kow article:
UW Trademark and Licensing Director Cindy Van Matre says fans can tell the Bucky is fake based on its "puffy features, odd coloring and sloppy sweater."

Don't those characteristics strike you as a mark of authenticity, really? Or, at least, a realistic representation of game-day life within walking distance of the fecal-pellet spire?

Not to belabor the point, but saying that any manifestation of BB is "fake" is redundantly redundant.
