Haha, it's a pretty common name for 'Furries' in some places.

I've seen ads in a local newspaper that said "Animators wanted". I was very surprised because the Dutch 3D market is so small, no way a company would advertise in a national newspaper. Turns out it was the same thing, companies looking to fill furry suits. :p

It's perfectly logical - you'll animate the furry suit. :p :rolleyes:

I hope the pay is good.
Mascots often get beat up.
Carrots, hotdogs, eagles, none are safe.

As the sausages ran past his dugout, Simon, 28, swatted the Italian sausage on the head with a two-fisted swing. The top-heavy sausage crumpled to the turf and tripped up the hot dog.

haha, nice.. poor sausage.
