The Washington Redskins are getting roasted because many are demanding that the team change it’s name, but PETA says there is no need for them to rename their legendary franchise. Instead just change the logo. To a “redskin” potato!
PETA explains why the Redskins should embrace the starchy food:
The redskin potato would be a noble mascot for a variety of reasons. Potatoes are also native Americans, having been cultivated in Peru for millennia. A tasty, versatile, animal- and environmentally friendly vegan staple, potatoes are now the most popular vegetable in the U.S. They are loaded with nutrients, including iron, potassium, vitamin C, fiber, and even protein, and red potatoes in particular are high in antioxidants. (Take that, Cheeseheads.)
Feast your eyes on this delicious potato logo.
This really just small potatoes so everyone can stop yammering and accept the new logo. Think of all the possibilities, Spud Webb could be their new mascot, fans at home could finally embrace the label of “couch potato” and Gatorade could make a potato-flavored sports drink and when the Redskins win a big game they can shower the coach with Taterade.[SportsGrid]
