K-State Debuts New Mascot, EcoKat - Lost Lettermen


K-State Debuts New Mascot, EcoKat


[Update: EcoKat has been removed from Kansas State’s website.]

Iowa and Iowa State just felt the wrath of the American public after debuting a football trophy with a basket of corn on it.

Well now it’s Kansas State’s turn to be a national punchline.

That’s because the school has decided to debut a new mascot to join Willie the Wildcat (who is already pretty strange himself) named “EcoKat,” a “crusader of conservation and fanatic of fluorescent lightbulbs” that is trying to help the school go green.

Naturally, the costume is made of 90 percent repurposed materials and eco-friendly dyes.

The result?

As you can see below, the mascot looks like a female superhero out of a bad comic book.
