    Well, this is a really simple question. Post photos if you do!

    Here is mine:

    (Yes, I do realise that Tux is the Linux mascot, and Strand consoles are based on a Microsoft system)

    Icewolf, I can't help but wonder who nitted the grim reaper, nitting is mostly done by old ladies, and I wonder how many old ladies nitt the grim reaper?

    First off, they are all crocheted. While I can both knit and crochet, I didn't make these guys, one of our crew members did. I would venture to guess that about 75% of our regular crew know how to knit and/or crochet, and do so regularly backstage, especially during tech.

    I've had a few board-mascots... Don't have one anymore. Have no idea where any of them went :(. My girlfriend gave me my last one too.

    I like the Buddha idea ^_^.

    I've seen some really good board-buddies, I'll have to look to see if I have photos.

    I'm liking the other hand made mascots. Here's mine...a squid. It was a gift from a friend and was dangling over my light board at previous employment.

    The choir director who was our TD for a while (no offense to her, but that was a bad time, she wasn't at all a TD) had this good luck dragonfly type thing that we had mounted next to the lighting desk, I don't know where it's since gone...

    When I was running board this year I had two.
    An a penguin with a head set I made during a show (the one perched on the encoders) and an angry syphilis sore (lurking between the monitors)

    [​IMG]

    The fun part came when a stage manager got attached to the syphilis and when I wasn't there one show texted me asking where syphilis was.
    I, of course, responded 'In my pants?'
    It just felt right.

    Also had some finger zombies I kept near my biscuit but they didn't last much past x-mas.

    I have a black rubber rat named Squeaky and a white rubber rat named Richard that sit on my console & keep me company. Both squeak (though not as loud as when new) when squeezed, which is sometimes beneficial during longer days.

    Thanks for the laugh. :) I presume syphilis is the red dot in the background?

    Not really a mascot but a lot of fun and a great way to release stress... let me show you the top of the PC located next to the light board. The force field button plays part of the Star Wars Imperial March. The Mickey Mouse button says "Oh boy"... a wonderful sarcastic treat.

    Those are great. I don't know why, but I think that squid is one of the neatest things I've ever seen.

    Don't have any pictures, but last summer our board opp had two on his Hog. One was an Office Max "That Was Easy" button, and the other was a a rabbit cut out of duvetyne. Get it? The duvetyne rabbit?
    I promise it was funny at the time...
