New Team in Town

Recently the Montgomery Biscuits got some competition for the oddest baseball team name. Now the Biscuits has gotten to be a favorite with fans, and it's a hard team name to top. 

Another minor league team weighed in by being known as the Wing Nuts, Good try.

However, now we have the Huntsville Trash Pandas!

For the uninitiated, a trash panda is a raccoon!

The Feud in the Church

Church feuds are not uncommon, especially among cliques in the congregation. But when the pastor and choir director get into it, stand aside.

One week our preacher preached on commitment, and how we should dedicate ourselves to service. The director then led the choir in singing, 'I Shall Not Be Moved.'

The next Sunday, the preacher preached on giving and how we should gladly give to the work of the Lord. The choir director then led the song, 'Jesus Paid It All.'

The next Sunday, the preacher preached on gossiping and how we should watch our tongues. The hymn was 'I Love To Tell The Story.'

The preacher became disgusted over the situation, and the next Sunday he told the congregation he was considering resigning. The choir then sang 'Oh, Why Not Tonight.'

When the preacher resigned the next week, he told the church that Jesus had led him there and Jesus was taking him away. The choir then sang, 'What A Friend We Have in Jesus.'

Sports Teams Nicknames

Sports team nicknames sometimes go into the questionable.

I know that there was a big to-do over the University of North Dakota Fighting Sioux; so much so that the team evolved into the Fighting Hawks. No chance of them adopting North Dakota Doves.

And years ago the Stanford Indians became the Stanford Cardinal. Only one bird, apparently.

But Florida State is still the Seminoles; Illinois is still the Fighting Illini; and Central Michigan is still the Chippewas. What ethnicity do the University of Hawaii Rainbow Warriors offend?

And what in the hell are the Ragin' Cajuns raging about?

Female students at Wichita State reportedly can experience Shockers on dates! And, unfortunately, Alabama co-eds experience heavy flow with their monthlies.

Are bikini waxes prohibited at Oregon State? 

Malevolent strains run in the ACC; with the Duke Blue Devils and the Wake Forest Demon Deacons. Some exorcism is needed there; but maybe everyone is figuring out what the hell is a Hokie? Is that a synonym for corny?
Arkansas Tech is the Wonder Boys. Or Golden Suns.

Webster University in Missouri teams are known as the Gorlocks. Named for the intersection of Gore and Lockwood Streets.

Akron University teams are known as the Zips. What is zipped, though: flies or mouths?
