Now ... what we really should be talking about is a mascot!  
(It's seems one cant reply to one's own post...) 

In a cooridor converstation, Seb said that "people should reply to the humming bird post because it's weak.  Maybe a 
polar bear." 

There is its: official sanction to spend time on this silly subject. 



I'm still thinking "small" for a mascot.  Small and not timid reminds me of:

- Yersinia pestis    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yersinia_pestis
or
- Clostridium botulinum    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clostridium_botulinum

Ok. Now you've got 3 lame suggestions to diss. Surely someone can think of something better.

My pick would be Toxoplasma gondii - many people are infected by it, 
almost none know they have it, and it controls their minds!

I like it. But we should check that some political party hasnt already
snapped-up the idea.
