Red Sox Redesign Wally

Recommended Posts

Wally was fat before. With the PC police everywhere, and children's obesity a touching subject, I'm completely guessing that this might have something to do with it.

But oyi, terrible update.

Yep. The Chicago Bulls had one of the best mascots around in Benny the Bull. A few years ago, they changed him, making him a lean, slam dunking piece of :censored:. They got rid of the lame second mascot "Da Bull" because the guy who wore the costume got caught selling crack. Da Bull was the high flying one, so I guess the changed Benny to be that.

I honestly believe there were frivolous lawsuits to the tune of "Johnny is obese because Benny the Bull is fat and happy, so Johnny thought being fat was good".

But that mascot is still fat. See the love handles and guy? Fat.

But I agree, child obesity is very touching. Every time I see a little fat boy huffing and puffing down the street, chili dog in hand, it just warms the cockles of my heart.

Johnny Red Kerr?

In my mind, Wally is a ripoff of the Grump (formerly of the Scranton Wilkes-Barre Red Barons)-- itself a strange 1989 lovechild of Oscar the Grouch and the Philly Phanatic's mother. Regardless, the Grump refuses to wear pants. Just hi-top Chuck Taylors.
