The College of William & Mary is changing it’s nickname from the Tribe to … something deemed less racially insensitive.
If you would like to submit a name, you can do so here. But the deadline is midnight tonight. AHHHHHHHHH! TOO MUCH PRESSURE! Who could possibly think of a non-racially insensitive nickname in that short amount of time?
I have already submitted the following:
William & Mary Royal Inbreds (obvious)
William & Mary Fightin’ Gout (gout was a common disease in colonial days)
William & Mary Powdered Wigs (obvious)
William & Mary & Teammates (visually consistent)
William & Mary Fightin’ Ampersands (unique)
William & Mary Enlightened Former Imperialists (EFIs for short; shows contrition and understanding)
William & Mary Totally-Honorable-And-In-No-Way-At-All-Stereotyping Tribe (appropriately PC)
And then a few more using anagrams of WilliamAndMary.
William & Mary Rad Wily Madmen
William & Mary Mild Wary Animals
William & Mary Mild Raw Mania
William & Mary May-I-Win Mallards
William & Mary I’d Win Llama Army
But I think we all can agree that due to what would be a very intimidating logo, the William & Mary Fightin’ Gout is the way to go.
G-O-U-T GOUT! GOUT! GOUT!
