No pride. Absolutely none.
If I see a giant mascot, I have to pose with it.
I also tried to get a picture with Phlegmy the Advair(R)-Sponsored Phlegm Monster at the asthma-awareness tent. But I think he got heat stroke in his plush costume, and had to go lie down.
Found 7/06, Unity Festival on Ben Franklin Parkway (Philadelphia, PA)
