Would you take a job as a sports mascot?

I was my high school's mascot so I'd try it out. But I'm going into science, where the pay is higher. Sports mascots aren't paid very much.

Jesus christ, how has this not broken his spine? Ice skating is hard and demands balance, skill, and good reaction. Wearing a giant costume is hard, hot, unbalanced, has blind spots, and you can't take sound cues because you can't hear shit through that much foam. This thing is like death-suit-on-ice.

Because Snoopy is that AWESOME!

I'd do it once or twice for a laugh but never as a job. I'd have to be pretty drunk though.

KC Wolf is awesome, but the Philly Phanatic is my idol, with the San Diego Chicken as a close second.

(Honorable mention: Chip the Buffalo, the Stanford Tree, and Scrotie the Penis.)

I'm not tall, athletic, or fast enough to be a professional mascot. The Phanatic regularly does things that would probably paralyze me.
There's a hilarious episode of It's Always Sunny in Philidelphia that involves the Philly Phanatic. I die Everytime I see that ep.

Anyone else feel like there is a great divide between what a mascot usually is and what I guess could be considered "acceptably furry"? I can't think of very many mascots that look nice at all except for that one from the Moscow Hockey Team.

Yes a lot of mascots aren't really furry at all.

Then you get this kind of thing:

Ah Yes, Wenlock and Mandeville, olympic and paralympic mascots. I never quite worked out those things, both have one cyclops eye and both their legs amputated just below the knees. This drawing sums them up nicely though.

On the other hand Pride the lion is OK. I'm sure I could be talked into wearing that mascot suit. For some reason there is a lot of NSFW drawings of him too.
