I was wondering what CGNU's mascot is, and if they have any sports teams. Thanks for the info.

'''STRONG BAD:''' ''{typing}'' Yeah, we got a mascot, Ike. Unfortunately, The Cheat, Strong Mad, and I were ''really'' hungry when we decided on a name. So, uh, all we came up with was the Crazy Go Nuts University Dumples. I think maybe we meant dumplings? But we were really hungry and tired and sorta confused and ended up putting Dumples on the application. We do have a sports team, though. The Golf Club Team. We have a game every day at 6pm!
