In all seriousness, what year is this thing from? I honestly can't tell if this was someone's idea of a joke in 2000, or if this is someone's idea of a joke in 2012. Both seem equally plausible!

So... a little of both it seems.

Thanks for the info. Also, just out of curiosity, are you a U of MN student or alum?

Nope, other side of the country in fact :) Is there another mediocregopher?

Not that I'm aware of, but our (is it still 'our' if you graduated ten years ago?) mascot is the gopher.

Of course, the original artist didn't have a gopher picture to go on when he drew Goldy, so he used a chipmunk instead, assuming there wasn't any difference (http://www.mndaily.com/2003/07/21/goldie-really-gopher)

The download says it was zipped in 2005.
