Just what were they thinking when they made these? For this list I’m looking at colleges that have named their athletic teams shocking or unusual things. The countdown starts now: 12. Xavier Musketeers. Nothing’s wrong with the Musketeers, unless your mascot isn’t even a musketeer. Their mascot is named “The Blue Blob”, and is exactly what it says on the tin. It’s so funny it comes out the other side to genuinely intimidating. 11. Whittier College Poets. Because no one fears poets, except when they look like this nightmare. Seriously, that thing doesn’t even look human. And what might they say at graduation? “Mr. Clark Haile will not be receiving a diploma because he can’t write poems. We here are the Poets, so if you are incapable of writing poetry, you must transfer, Mr. Haile.” If that’s the truth, then close Whittier College. 10. Western Kentucky University Hilltoppers.

A few months ago I did a list of 12 Scrabble Words That Shouldn't Be Acceptable, like "za" and "zzz". Now, I give you 12 words that are not Scrabble-accepted, but should be. 1. Niggardly. Meaning "stingily", this word used to be acceptable, but was banned in 2013. I guess because it sounds too much like a well-known racial slur?
