Forum:Can we make this guy the official site mascot?

I recently watched the documentary, "An Honest Liar," which is about James Randi.

Here's a little excerpt from the wikipediea article:

Randi has gone on to write many articles criticizing beliefs and claims regarding the paranormal. He has also demonstrated flaws in studies suggesting the existence of paranormal phenomena; in his Project Alpha hoax, Randi successfully planted two fake psychics in a privately funded psychic research experiment. The hoax became a scandal and demonstrated the shortcomings of many paranormal research projects at the university level.

He's now one of my personal heros and I think he sounds like the perfect mascot for RationalWiki. Thoughts? InfinitelySingular (talk) 17:45, 12 August 2015 (UTC)


The one and only mascot of the RW is and will be forever THE GOAT! Recant, Jerboaists! Heiðrún's gonna kick your ass!--Arisboch ☞✍☜☞✉☜ 17:51, 12 August 2015 (UTC)

There is no goat but Heiðrún, and Snorri is her prophet. WalkerWalkerWalker 17:53, 12 August 2015 (UTC)

James Randi was a great man but he was just that- a man. He came nowhere near the seemingly infinite power of Goats and their Goatspeed. #BlackLivesMatter (talk) 18:02, 12 August 2015 (UTC)
What if we get a picture of him with a goat? InfinitelySingular (talk) 18:02, 12 August 2015 (UTC)
I think you're on to something. #WhiteHivesLadder (talk) 18:03, 12 August 2015 (UTC)

I am curious, who is the inventor of that truly inspirational piece of art? I think it gives deep insight on today's societal decadence and how honest hard-working American citizens need to drive their country forward. #WhitePeopleUseLadders (talk) 18:10, 12 August 2015 (UTC)
I so wish I was not in the middle of a huge meeting at work right now. Must. Resist. Clicking. Link!!!!! InfinitelySingular (talk) 18:29, 12 August 2015 (UTC)

We have a mascot[edit]

That's not to say James Randi isn't awesome[edit]

I'm pretty sure it's safe to say he's an inspiration to most skeptics. ikanreed You probably didn't deserve that 17:51, 12 August 2015 (UTC)

Randi Schmandi. The Rare Breeds Farm in my town has a pigmy goat called Darwin. BicyclewheelModerator 19:11, 12 August 2015 (UTC)
James Randi kicks mega ass. That being said, he's already the founder and member of many sceptical organisations, the Randi foundation, his prize, CSICOP, and so forth. It'd be confusing to just make him our mascot, as he's so far mascoting a lot for various sceptic projects and organisations that he himself is actually closely tied with. Why don't we make his article of gold quality already? Damn. Reverend Black Percy (talk) 19:18, 12 August 2015 (UTC)
