There should at least stitches for giveaway baseball days.

Just saw a spot on Spectrum news saying that today is National Smile Day. Some sort of half assed celebration in Worcester featuring local sports mascots including this abomination. FWIW, it seems the smiley face originated in Worcester so that seems to be the connection. Thanks Harvey.

Rock > SoxJox < Hard Place
Gawd.

On a separate subject, does the "Sports Turf Specialists" truck in the background suggest they are putting down some form of synthetic turf? Although, sure, grass IS turf. But when used in the sports context, it generally refers to something manmade, doesn't it?

You guys are crazy--the top half is hype. Minor league ball is for 7 year-olds. OTOH, the shirt----/knee sock lower half is unsettling. Minor league ball is for 7 year-olds.

One thing I think we can all agree on is that if they use that photo in public print ads around Worcester, some Sharpies are going to be employed to predictable effect.

I want a cool ass hat. Smiley Ball does not provide this. Therefore, I am angry.

Hey man, it's not my fault you're a prude ok? Nor is it the Woo Sox's. Even the Philly Phanatic needs to let the downstairs breathe a bit.
I'm very sex positive. Except when it comes to 5 year olds. Cartoon characters and team mascots are definitely designed to groom kids for pedophiles.

Look at this bastard for example:



Hanging out bottomless with his "nephews."

When I first glanced at the thread title, I thought "Doug smiley is *not* going to help this rotation."

See any pants? Nope. Just good old fashion hijinks. AND they were even loyal ACME customers.
Anthropomorphic animal cartoons being totally naked always felt less weird to me than ones that wore some clothes. Wearing nothing is just an animal in it's natural state. Wearing just a shirt (or socks in this case) says that they know all about clothes and how they work, they just choose to go bottomless.

Yeah but we don’t know the anatomy of this monstrosity. Maybe its feet ARE its genitalia, so it’s actually doing us a favor by covering them.

You know what weird? How Donald Duck never wore pants, but when he took a shower, he had a towel on...wtf with that?

This is a great point. This Chtulu-level horror could be from any planet or dimension. We have no idea how it even reproduces let alone where the genitals are. More reason to fear and shun it.

Also true. He knew exactly what he was doing. The creeper.
