Clearly, we disagree- but what makes it almost laughable is that this blog is based out of Kentucky. You know, the state whose major college teams are the Wildcats and the Cardinals. Those are both pretty awesome and unique names. This is kind of like having someone with the last name Smith tell you that your surname is stupid. I'd make fun of Kentucky's pro team names, but that state is too backwater to have one. And even OKLAHOMA has an NBA team now. The other funny part of this "honor" bestowed upon TCU is the reasoning behind the choice by straight pinkie's Cory Collins:
They’ve been the creatures inside the jar in your 8th grade science classroom, fighting for air as you wait to dissect their innocent, slimy bodies. Many of them didn’t have Elliott from E.T. to rescue them.
They’ve been the flat disks of green that color the highways, failing to make the other side because of large trucks and children who suck at video games.
They’ve been the puppets forced to marry grotesquely obese and annoying pigs, forever doomed to have private parts that smell like bacon bits and old ham.
They’ve been the princes awaiting a kiss from a beautiful woman. They’ve been the creatures accused of creating warts with their pee. They’ve been the bloated ball of sickly green that shows up in the swimming pool skimmer. They’ve even been tie-dyed and sold as emblems of peace.You get the sense that Mr. Collins doesn't understand that Horned Frogs are actually lizards. But then again, maybe we should cut him some slack. Identifying creatures based on scientific classification is probably a tough thing to do in a state that still denies evolution. Maybe they should stick to horse racing, bourbon and cheating at college basketball and leave the science to the grown-ups.
