Jon Stewart ’84: Go Fighting Herbils!

Jon Stewart ’84 addressed the College of William and Mary’s mascot search last night on his Comedy Central show “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart.”

“Did you guys hear? William and Mary has just announced their new mascot,” Stewart said, eliciting laughter from his studio audience. “Let me tell you, they voted for — it’s an herbil, a combination, new breed, hamster/gerbil. Go Fighting Herbils.”

Unfortunately for Stewart, the Fighting Herbil will not be the College’s new mascot. The five finalists announced last week by the College are the phoenix, the king and queen, the wren, the pug and the griffin.
