Community College Sports Team Mascot Abducted

The insignificant town of Lebanon, Pennsylvania has become the centre of national attention because its community college, Harrisburg Area Community College, is home to a controversial sports mascot.

“Mu-Hammy,” the walking mascot who looks roughly like a dinosaur wearing a turban, has actually disappeared. Mu-Hammy represented the Lebanon Prophets.

“We used to be the Lebanon Dinosaurs, but we thought it might be clever if we made some kind of middle-east/Jesus connection with our town’s name,” said Principal Robert Lester.

“Obviously we didn’t have enough money to make a new costume for our new mascot, so we just stuck a turban on top of the old mascot’s head (the dinosaur). And now we’re the Prophets!”

The actor who wore the dinosaur-turban costume, Harold Hanks, has been missing for three days. The dinosaur-arab costume has also been missing.

Please report any evidence or facts linking to the abduction to (416) 555-3432.
