The Goose’s Roost is on a quest to find The Most Insignificant Mascot in Buffalo History and we need your help. Each day, we’ll take a look at a particularly insignificant candidate and put it up for a vote on Monday.
Today’s candidate was suggested by the master of Buffalo sports history and road trip aficionado Peter Farrell from USRT. Sorry, but I don’t think “the ballpark slut” is going to make the cut.
Meet Loud Mouth, because every ballpark needs a resident mime.
Name: Loud Mouth
Species: Human/Mime (Are mimes a species of their own? Discuss.)
Years in existence: As far as I can tell, from the mid-1990s to early-2000s.
What this mascot brought to Buffalo: Cleverness. A mime named Loud Mouth? What a pun!
Also, in my humble opinion, Loud Mouth added a certain level of overall creepiness that is lacking at the ballpark. Mimes are scary; this is a fact. I think that regular ol’ human mascots are exponentially creepier than those in a big goofy costume, and Loud Mouth is no exception. Take this little girl, for example…
Laughing hysterically or a desperate plea for help? I’m going with the latter.
Legacy: To my surprise, Loud Mouth lives on. From traceybwilson.com, the official site of the actress/comidienne that brought the mime to life…
With the character officially trademarked to Tracey, Loud Mouth can now be seen entertaining at major corporate events and parties all over.
Where do I sign up?
