That's the solution! Name the Trident subs "Brexit" (or, better yet, Brexit McBrexface, etc) and say "We tried."

Not to hijack the thread, but why does the DMV need a mascot?

To hang out at their job fair booth at the fair, apparently.

Generally the DMV has a bad image, so what they need is to spend money on a mascot, to get the people to like them. (In my experience with the DMV in 6 different states, the DMV has always been pretty easy to deal with, and their have never been really long waits. But hey, a neat mascot would make it a nicer wait.)

Weird. I've never heard of a team without a mascot so it's a wonder the BMV hasn't had one. As you probably know, it's to excite fans and bring in corporate support, for putting on team merchandise, etc.

I'm voting for Slothy McSlothface.

I've had nothing but positive experiences at the BMV* since I moved back to Ohio almost 20 years ago.

*Bureau, not Department. Because Ohio.

I'm surprised that Flash isn't the DMV/BMV's mascot already.

Or is that because he's been caught speeding?

Careful, the DMV might attack you in retribution.

I looked at the BMV mascot, and... come on, his face actually is a license plate! How could you not name him Platey McPlateface? Seriously, I understand that for something like a research vessel they wanted a more serious name, but this is a silly anthropomorphic cartoon license plate. I don't think Platey McPlateface is entirely inappropriate here.
