 The awesome mascot that's in the Pidgin logo is very well designed. So-
 much so, that I instinctively questioned its name. I mean, something that
 awesome *must* have a name.

 So I ventured into the IRC chatroom on irc.freenode.net to find out.

 21:38 < atc-> hi
 21:38 < atc-> Strange but quick question: is there a name for the Pigeon
 on the Pidgin Icon/website i.e. is it a mascot and does it have a name?
 21:38 < elb> it is a mascot, it has no name
 21:39 < atc-> ok
 21:39 < atc-> thanks
 21:39 < atc-> Can it be called Piginski?
 21:40 < atc-> *Pidginski
 21:42 < elb> probably not
 21:42 < atc-> That's a shame. I think it's a good name.
 21:43 < atc-> Oh well. I'll leave it with you. Perhaps it'll warm on you
 as you sleep all tucked up nice and warm under your snuggly duvet.
 21:43 < atc-> Thanks for the help. Good night/day.
 21:43 < atc-> xx


 It has no *name*? How unfair is that?

 Look at it.

 Look it in the eyes.

 Tell me it doesn't require a name. Tell me it's not worth that. Think of
 the effort that went into creating him/her. How can it not be given the
 dignity of a name?

 For the love of God, fix this bug.

 Call that delightful mascot "Pidginski".
