INTRODUCING THE 2020 MASCOT...​

MEET THE SQROOSE!

Half eastern grey squirrel (Sciurus carolinensis) and half Western Canada Moose (Alces alces andersoni), the Sqroose is the official 2020 GISH Mascot.

Let’s face it: GISH isn’t always the easiest or safest place for a hybrid species to work.

We’re not saying it’s a dangerous work environment, but OSHA reports indicate an unusually high rate of turnover from year to year — due in large part to the number of workplace safety “incidents”. To be blunt, mascots sometimes meet a tough end around here. Previous mascots have been run over by a bus, gone to rehab, had nervous breakdowns, lost rigged elections, been hospitalized in unfortunate bounce-house injuries, and were even occasionally eaten alive. We’re not proud to admit it, but the GISH mascots have kicked the bucket more often than a WInchester on a perpetual Tuesday.

So when our beloved 2019 Mascot, Assbutt, expressed concern about COVID-19 and requested an immediate sabbatical to cocoon-in-place, we fired him immediately granted his request for leave and found an independent contractor to step in as an essential worker for the 2020 GISH Season.
