What the **** is a billiken? No seriously, does anyone know what it is? I mean is like a bird? Maybe some sort of cross-breed abomination between a bear and pelican? Is it a demon? Why is it white? Why does their mascot look so mischievous? Who knows? This is what the SLU website has to say: The Billiken is a mythical good-luck figure who represents "things as they ought to be." Before he was Saint Louis University's mascot, he was a national sensation, a figure who was reproduced as dolls, marshmallow candies, metal banks, hatpins, pickle forks, belt buckles, auto-hood ornaments, salt and pepper shakers, bottles and more. Umm. OK. He sort of looks like Buddha to me. So yeah, we're playing the mythical good-luck fairies this weekend. Sounds about right. Let's see what kind of look alike talent they have.
