After the post letting all know that there is already an armadillo meme (F*ck Yeah English Major Armadillo), we got a bunch of suggestions for other meme animals that would work if we wanted to change, including but not limited to:
Alpaca, Axolotl, Alligator, Amoeba, Aardwolf, Echidna … etc.
All of which have their own draws (and levels of cuteness — Hello, Axolotlface). So I submitted a question to the moderators of fyeahenglishmajorarmadillo to ask what they thought about our double-use of the armadillo. Included in the response:
“I think that, if you actually have ties to Armadillos, there’s no problem with you keeping it. A completely different topic, a different image… should be ok, methinks … I mean, if you want to be original, go ahead and change it, but if that’s too much trouble, don’t worry!”
So now I ask: what do YOU think? I’ll collect answers through the end of the day Friday — feel free to send a message or answer this post if you feel strongly either way (changing our little buddy or keeping it how it is), and let me know, if you want to change, what you’d want it to be changed to (not necessarily from the ideas submitted above, could be anything). Come Saturday morning I’ll tally up how many people think we should keep our armadillo roots strong vs. how many want a new animal. If there’s a higher vote for a new animal than there is for keeping the armadillo, I’ll start anew and have it up by Monday! Thoughts?
