General rule about mascots: They should either entirely naked, or fully clothed. Emphasizing that sometimes they might take off clothes, and have a life outside of scaring small children at arenas, is just asking for trouble.

"What you can't see are the even creepier Victoria's Secret wings on his back. I think it was "molester night" at Philips Arena."
If the Phillie Phanatic — who, as we've mentioned, terrifies us — comes out in his underwear, we're gonna take a little break from sports for a while.
