History Behind the Name: The Animal earned his name through his extreme performances during Cross Country season, and general

A Note on the Side: An award is given out in the name of the great Animal, to anyone who, in the opinion of the MAD FIGS, has
far exceeded their expected potential. They are named the Honorary Animal of the Day, and it is said [after a period of 24 hours] that
the person has been H.A.D.
[Scott Dogg notes: Apparently Jacob came up with this idea at some point, no one else has ever heard of it actually being done.]
