I agree. We can have "Bear" as the logo.

You would be taken much more seriously had you posted this in the JavaRanch forum. By posting here it is fair game.

He lost it in a bizarre kayaking accident? There's nothing better on a frosty winter's eve than warm toasted moose eye? His parents got him a Red Ryder 200-shot carbine-action model air rifle with a compass in the stock and this thing that tells time for Christmas, and he shot his eye out?
The moose has character.

Ain't you never seen what happens to an old moose head that's been sittin' over a bar fer years? I'm surprised the darn thing ain't in worse shape.
And we can't change the logo because gettin' a new moose head would be too darn expensive. Those darn things ain't cheap!

I agree. Give the moose his walking papers. I feel like I'm at Bugaboo Creek.

I agree. Here's the link:
