I don't really see why you couldn't make a stuffed Debian swirl. I'd buy
one of those. Maybe we could call the Debian swirl our mascot and come
up with some lame name like "Swirly the Debian mascot". It could be like
that talking paper clip they always make fun of in M$ Office.

Hmm! Maybe a "Debian assistant"... "*boing* I see you are trying to
install a package, do you want help with that?"
