Petition to Make "Magic Donkey" Flickr's Official Mascot

jittery purpose [deleted] says:

To whom it may concern,

We, the undersigned, are in support of making the Magic Donkey the official mascot of the Flickr community (and the brand). This means cute Magic Donkey icons, buttons, t-shirts, panties, and other fun stuff.

The Undersigned...

Donkeys are not noted for the intelligence or their speed - is this significant? (I have just had a very big dose of delays due to Flickr indigestion - so maybe I am a bit jaded.)

Actually, I believe the opposite has been observed to be the case. In any event, the Magic Donkey is the oracle that determines interestingness, it's not the server or network administrator.

I love and own dogs, but "De gustibus non est disputandum", (There is no disputing taste.) I award Flickr THE GOLDEN ZERO, for ugliness (in my opinion only), of most member icons and for the suggested Flickr Icons.

Have a graphic artist from Flickr make a colorful abstract of the letters FLICKR. That dog and whatever that other creature is does not repesent me.

striatic is a group administrator striatic says:

just to get everyone up to speed on this:

dos pesos is a chihuahua-yorkie cross who is the proud owner of caterina fake and stewart butterfield, founders of flickr.

he is flickr's official mascot.

flickr photo #88 is a photograph of dos pesos and is the oldest picture on flickr that is not a test image.

dos pesos has a flickr uniform that heather had made especially for him.

here are some photos of dos pesos, as you can see, he is very cute:

Huh? It is my understanding that Dos Pesos is the ultimate decision maker in Flickr. Just like Brock was the real power behind FlickrCentral.

Before he was made administrator, that is. Now he's just a public servant.

jeneveeve says:

I say give it to the chihuahua, he was the first and he is deserving, I mean, how many of us have been around that long AND have flickr clothes, seriously?
**But why can't he have a sidekick?
DP could choose a "mascot-o-the year", sort of like the chinese calendar - year of the magic donkey, year of the magic monkey, year of the magic iguana, you get it.... chosen by DP (and his peeps) from all the great images and imaginations on flickr.
Create a group, flickerittes post a pic and story, and every Jan. we crown a new mascot of the year to be DP's sidekick. (maybe each mascot would get a flickr cape...don't sidekicks usually have capes? Or is that just with superhero's?)
...it's just a thought....I'll go back to work now...

i think that's a great idea.

DP as flickr Head-of-State, who can appoint someone to do all the public appearances that he's too busy for.

sort of like the Queen and Governor General in Canada.
