Why no wolverine?

April 26, 2007

This might sound like a totally inane question… but I’ve always wondered: why does the University of Michigan not employ a wolverine mascot?

    Yeah thanks! You’ve made a lot of people happy (and even more people unhappy, because they lost the bet)! πŸ™‚ For your information, 9 people thought you were wearing a t-shirt and 4 people thought you weren’t. πŸ™‚
