[BLEEP] YOU, MASCOT: Harry the Hawk


I was going to wait a couple a days before I did another one of these, but dangit! Mr. Harry the Hawk here forced my hand. It's the first time in SWRT history that I've gone after a pro mascot, and trust me, its for a real good reason. But before that...
Hey Harry; are you really a Hawk? Are you even a bird. It's kind of hard to tell here from this picture. It looks like you have wings and tail feathers, but your head doesn't look too hawk-like there. You look more like a snapping turtle, if I can be brutally honest. Or maybe its one of those other critters from Super MarioBros. And your armswings make you look more like the limbs of some kind of mutant red tiger or something. All together, you're something that looks like something out of a bad game of Dungeons & Dragons.
I shouldn't complain too much. I mean its one thing for a college student to dress up as a lame funny animal mascot for a scholarship. Its a complete other thing to turn cosplaying into a full time paying gig. And you've obviously done that, Harry. You're being paid to be a furry. Whether that's something to write home about it another matter.
But back to the reason for today's grievance. For Halloween, you and the Atlanta Hawks' A-Town dancers decided to do a little routine for Halloween. So what did y'all come up with?
A freaking Thriller dance routine:




Black Lantern Michael Jackson is not amused.

(apologies as usual to Matthew Gasteier)
