Richmond Welcomes New Spider

Facing potential copyright infringement issues, the University of Richmond said goodbye to their furry spider mascot, Spidey. Earlier this month the university welcomed a new spider Mascot, WebstUR.

WebstUR was revealed at a Reunion Rally on June 4. He’s kinda scary. It’s definitely an improvement on the intimidation factor but we’re not sure how the kids will react to it.

In case you’re unfamiliar with their old mascot, here’s a picture of Spidey.

Ice Cream Attacked in the Cone

We’re not really trying to make a joke out of this… the title was just too good to pass up.

According to police reports, a 17-year old boy was attacked inside a ice cream mascot suit while working for Marble Slab Creamery in Rock Hill, SC. Apparently he was jumped by four other juveniles outside of a Dick’s Sporting Goods store. Slabby’s helper, a 17-year old girl, was not able to help.

TMB would like to note the lack of peripheral vision in this suit. It’s a lot harder to fend off an attack when you can’t see. At least the cone had arms.
