"Who wants a Colonel when you could have an Admiral?"

Olemissackbar

The University of Mississippi is seeking to replace its mascot, Colonel Reb, out of concerns that the Confederate caricature is outdated and offensive. Enter the Internet:

Tuesday, the students voted in favor of crowning a new mascot to represent Rebel Nation ... and the favorite so far is none other than the most famous Mon Calamari in the entire universe. Several pro-Ackbar websites have recently emerged -- making the Admiral the heavy favorite.

Support the cause here.
