"Celebration!" Cries the Moose

The SU's Traveling Blackboard Support Moose has lowered its adorable shoulders and thrown back its gloriously fuzzy antlers to cry-out one simple message, "Celebration!"

What is the cause of all of this very moosey celebrating?  Well... The story is as old as time itself; however, the abridged version is as follows:

"When the great moose-prints of time began to march ever forward, and the first rack of powerful moose-antlers were formed from the same particles that were forged in the belly of stars, the first moose began to roam through space and time itself.  After eons of interstellar moose-travel, a moose, found a planet that happened to have pristine virgin forests and somewhat comfortable moss. After moments of debate, the moose decided this was a suitable home for moose-kind.  That moose, came to be known as, "that big animal in the woods."  For decades the moose enjoyed the shelter that the forest provided, but it always yearned to be called something more.  Over time, the yearning for a proper noun to associate itself with a public identity became a compulsion so strong that the moose learned the local language and asked, "Hey folks, could you please name me something.  I'd really appreciate a good name."  And so the people named the moose, "Gordon." After that, the moose summoned all of his strength and shouted towards the stars to all moose far and wide that he, in fact, had been given a proper name. It was that day that from then on all moose celebrate when one of their own are bestowed a name."

Now that you know one of the most secret and interesting facts about deep moose-lore, it should be imminently clear why the IC Department Bb Team is proud to announce that our very own SU Traveling Blackboard Support Moose has found its name!
