We interrupt this rendition of "Hotty Toddy, Mon Calamari" to remind everyone that knowledge of the actual rules makes everything less fun.
Lawyers don't even see the matrix anymore, all they see is torts, liability, and contract infringement.
One of those commentors is right, though. With the Ackbar thing, Ole Miss has absolutely turned the usual teeth-pulling excercise of changing mascots into something awesome. The amount of good press they've gotten for this is outstanding.
Luckily, since the law hain't never stopped Georgia Tech students from running around Atlanta in Stormtrooper outfits, I can't wait to see if anyone at Ole Miss takes up the new "unofficial" mascot mantle and runs with it. This could be the start of one of the greatest collegiate inside-jokes in history.
