Sweet tap dancing Christ.
Meet Gritty. He’s a vaguely humanoid abberation that God forgot. As with most major mascots (who can forget the Staley the Bear debacle of 1987), he’s caused an utter media firestorm. Flyers fans and foes alike have already called for Gritty’s removal from the team’s records. A particularly unsettling tweet even called for the mascot’s demise at the hands of angry Philadelphians.
WARNING: The following tweet is not appropriate for children.
remember when the good people of Philadelphia destroyed that hitchhiking robot bc he was an affront to god and goodness? I trust they will soon come to their senses and kick the shit out of Gritty

Why anyone would feel a desire to make the sex with a being who makes Quasimodo look like the top contender for People Magazine’s sexiest man alive is beyond this reporter. His moving googly eyes are the stuff of Scott Norwood level sports nightmares, and the contrast of his human hands with the rest of his fursona is unsettling.
The eyes. The hair. The human-like hands. What could compel people to muster even a phantom of arousal for…
