PETA has come up with a solution to the controversy over the naming and branding of the Washington Redskins that sees the American Football team get to keep their name...and it might just work.
The animal rights group has suggested that the team simply change their logo to the redskin potato and created a mock-up to show how it would look.
From "The PETA-Files" blog section of PETA's website:
The redskin potato would be a noble mascot for a variety of reasons. Potatoes are also native Americans, having been cultivated in Peru for millennia. A tasty, versatile, animal- and environmentally friendly vegan staple, potatoes are now the most popular vegetable in the U.S. They are loaded with nutrients, including iron, potassium, vitamin C, fiber, and even protein, and red potatoes in particular are high in antioxidants. (Take that, Cheeseheads.)
Ok PETA, now change the Cleveland Indians logo.
