[BLEEP] YOU, MASCOT! Albert the Aligator

See, I told you I was going to get to Albert the Alligator, didn't I?
Look, Florida. I get it. You're Florida. Florida is full of Alligators. Therefore your team nickname is the Gators. I get it. What I don't get? Why you had to go and name your furry costumed mascot Albert. You want to know why, because the dang name was already taken!
Does this gentle fella ring a bell?

Yep, it's Albert Alligator from Pogo. You ripped off Walt Kelly, dangit! What, nobody at Florida could come up with a more original name? Florida should be lucky Black Lantern Walt Kelly doesn't go down to Gainesville and deck your halls to Boston, Charlie.
