    Trump University - Donald Trump
    Just noticed they started a program today at CJ.

    http://www.trumpuniversity.com/

    Now notice the Lion in the very upper left, part of the logo.

    Reminded me of my HS, upper left too:

    http://www.heidelberghighschool.com/

    It's a sign of something, not sure.

    It's not a lion, it's a gryphon.

    Ah, had to look up what that was.

    "This noblest of fantastic creatures is a combination of the two noblest creatures of their elements, the lion, of land, and the eagle, of air. It is an emblem of knowledge and valor, and is a guardian of kings. This majestic beast is still well known in the world for its protection and majesty."

    I'm going to have to research this. I know with Heidelberg it's always been a lion and it looked like he was walking on his hind legs or something. Will have to double check that.

    Your mascot is a lion, but the school crest has a gryphon (also see griffen/griffin).



    And this is a rather large Liger:

    Yep, Heidelberg is in fact a Lion symbolizing the Electoral Palatinate:

    As far as Trump I still think it is a Lion because Donald Trump's Grandfather was born in Germany

    and then the Gold and Black. It's usually a Black Lion with Gold background or Gold Lion with a Black blackground. And the color of his site also matches the German Flag:

    All I get reminded of is David Letterman's "Trump or Wookie" game.

    Man, I wish I had hair like that!

    It is hard to tell if Trump's logo has wings or a tail. You can see an error in the flash animation on the front page where the designer didn't keep the transparency right and the lion/gryphon's tail/wings are messed up.


    ps. that is a Liger! Lion x Tiger hybrid (it's probably, like, the coolest animal ever)

    Damn you, Trump, get on your approvals! How can I become a trillionaire if you don't let me into the program?

    I love the suggested keywords to bid on, including such gems as:

    "Real Estate"

    and

    "Ideas"

    Deb: What are you drawing?
    Napoleon Dynamite: A liger.
    Deb: What's a liger?
    Napoleon Dynamite: It's pretty much my favorite animal. It's like a lion and a tiger mixed... bred for its skills in magic.

    Speaking of which, does anybody watch the Apprentice? That blonde girl is going to be fired in about 15 minutes.
