Name the Captain's New Sidekick!

Stopped in at Hill City, SD today. The great thing about the general Black Hill's area in late August is the vendors are trying to unload all their Sturgis crap they couldn't sell during the rally. Ergo something that was $50 (like a leather vest) is now $15.

Then I saw this little guy;







Now keep in mind, a fair amount of motorcycle riders don their motorcycles with a stuffed buffalo as kind of a "guardian angel" sort of thing to protect you from spills, crashes, teen age girls and their 30-40 something soccer moms yapping on their cell phones while obliviously driving their SUV in and out of three lanes of traffic.

The only question is what do we name this little shaver?

He is a FULLY DEVELOPED buffalo, he does have FOUR LEGS and a tail, they just seem like stumps. He's just a little small, that's all.

Any suggestions for the name?

I'd say, "Polly" -- (as in a typical parrot's name... after all, a Captain's "sidekick" would be a parrot)... but that would go against my masculine principles.

Since I'm a Captain drinker... I'd have to suggest "Morgan".

The child I never had would have set me back $250,000 and lord knows how much free time and fun time.

This little fella cost me $3.99 and I'm pretty sure I could even use him at a bar to pick up chicks!
