Ever Notice The Names?

Two days ago, stopped at an intersection, the car in front of me had a bumper sticker that caught my eye. We all find ourselves reading funny ones, crazy ones, inspiring ones, and sometimes offensive ones.

If you click on this photo, it’ll enlarge and it reads:

  • WILDCAT TERRITORY – BEWARE

We see names like: Wildcats, Bulldogs, Warriors, Rockets, Fighting Irish, Rams, Raiders and other assorted “power names”.

You know what we never see on High School “Team” bumper stickers? ┬áThe Bunnies, Chicks, Duckies, Wildflowers, Snowflakes, Gumdrops.

Culture is what people think and do, without thinking.

What if we started to think a bit differently about bumper stickers, names, habits, confidence, tough decisions?

Great point! I think it is healthy and worthy for a company to have a mascot too. It does not necessary need to be a warrior type, but something that unites the troops towards the end goal…Disney has its Mickey, Toys R us has their Giraffe, and National Rehab Hospital has “VIC”, short for all the little victories you need to go thru in Rehab ( a 6 ft tall blue giant “V” in high top workout sneakers. Sometimes the name does fit the firm.
