Stupid fans of the Washington D.C. professional football team are not heeding calls from smart people to boycott the team’s insensitive moniker, say organizers.
Prominent supporters of the boycott include publications read by intelligent, literary types such as The New Republic, Mother Jones and Slate. The Dandy Goat has also proudly joined the boycott.
While the boycott of the Washington-professional-football-team’s name has not gained much traction among stupid fans, a few sports columnists — like Christine Brennan and Peter King — have stopped using the name, thereby proving they graduated from at least the sixth grade.
Critics say the Washington-professional-football-team’s name must be changed because it is offensive to some Native Americans as well as a number of highly-educated white social critics.
Organizers say they will continue putting pressure on Washington-professional-football-team’s owner Daniel Snyder, who is clearly a total and utter idiot and couldn’t even get through a single paragraph of The New Republic, to change the name.
Critics have proposed alternatives that also evoke the nobility and bravery of the Washington-professional-football-team’s current name. These include the Washington Interns, the D.C. Thinktankers and the Capitol Hill Lobbyists. In all cases, critics say, a potential mascot could be a fierce cockroach in a business suit.
