If you're going to go down that path/gutter, then consider this for
inspiration:

sr=8-4/ref=sr_8_4/102-0229811-3673733?v=glance&s=music&n=507846 (an old
Robin Williams routine)

Do you really think a penguin is anthropomorphic? I've seen enough
variety of cartoon snakes (including the one previously mentioned at
http://www.snakecartoons.com/snake.htm and plenty of Gary Larson panels)
to think a snake makes a reasonable and flexible mascot...

I have a book of the "Snake" cartoons somewhere. Does he have a website?

The Python mascot could be non-sexist, too. Think "her" instead of
"him". (Nothing like some mammalian protruberances to anthropomorphise a
beastie) - Lady Snake, but more voluptuous, and possessing udders that
twin calves could live off?

Surely there must be a way of using such appendages to operate keyboards
and mice? (Maybe some of the female contributors could do such an
experiment for a laugh).

Sorry. Lady Snake just brings out the old letch within ...
