The Jackalope is Named
It's official. She has a name.
Last month, we asked you to cast a name for our dear mascot at the opening of a very fitting art exhibition, "Re-Imagining the West," at the Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art.
The winner and official namer of the Jackalope won a SMoCA annual membership and bragging rights, of course.
Check out the winner and name after the jump ...
We're pretty sure there's such thing as a female Jackalope (as the species/legend continues), and as rumor has it, they can even be milked ... but now we're veering in a completely different direction.
In any case, please welcome Mavis -- the sassy, self-respecting Jackalope -- to the family. She'll be around for a while and may even need a companion in the far future.
All name credit is due to Damian Johnson, who can hopefully be found at SMoCA using his free membership.
