November 12th, from 4pm to 7pm, the City of Laredo will be having it's recycling fair. Once again, I got to see just how bland some of the names used by the department's mascots really are. Willie Bote leads the pack of course. Other character names really push the envelope. One of them is called "Cleany" another "Dusty". Just how much of someone's meal break did it take to come up with those two? I'm guessing someone was joking outloud "Yeah, maybe we can name one Cleany" and it stuck.
Personally, I would have gone with some names like "Garritas" or "El Mope Ninja" or something of that sort.
Granted, the effort still deserves our support and praise. "Cleany"?? Why not "La Mata Mugre"?
