NSFW-ish: Don’t Be Surprised If The Rhode Island School Of Design’s Hockey Mascot Is A Bit Cocky

Why is that, you ask? Well, since the name of the  Rhode Island School of Design hockey team is the Nads and the mascot’s name is “Scrotie,” I’ll allow you to draw your own conclusions.

Seriously, it’s the truth. The mascot for RISD’s hockey team is a person dressed up as a penis. Goodness knows how long people have known about RISD and their phallic mascots, but it’s new to me. Update: Deadspin Editor Emeritus Will Leitch had a post about Scrotie all the way back in 2006, so I’m way late to this one. Still funny though.

From the school’s official site:

NADS Ice Hockey

RISD’s NADS Ice Hockey club has been in existence since 1961. Quality of effort has been steady for those many years while quality of play has varied wildly. The NADS’ ebullient fans include students of both art and design and a large phallus named ‘Scrotie’. Come join the other loud and sometimes needlessly gaudy fans as we defend the honor of our honor.

So there you have it. I suppose when a school counts Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane as one of its most prestigious alumni, I suppose this all makes perfect sense and nothing about this particular institute of higher learning should come as a surprise to anybody. For instance, like how their basketball team is called the Balls. Seriously. Look it up.

After the jump, a photo of Scrotie as well as an amusing flier. It should go without saying that a man dressed up as a penis might be NOT SAFE FOR WORK.

Awesome.
