I disagree as well. I think you're looking too much into what a mascot should 
means; looking at others mascot, linux's tux, freebsd's demon, go lang's 
thingie, perl (and ocaml)'s camel, java's duke (huh?), ..., do you think that 
any of them subscribe to your description of what a mascot should be ?

I think cute is good enough, and heathmatlock's lamb da, a good and simple name 
with a funny pun, definitely made me smile, and hope that's something i see on 
haskell tshirts soon ;-)

(And as a side note, i think the honey badger looks like a brute animal, not an 
elegant and beautiful animal.)
