New Swag Alert: Meet Greauxgu the Tiger

Allow myself to reintroduce myself

About two months ago I reached out to our friends at BreakingT about making an LSU-themed Star Wars shirt to celebrate the launch of The Mandalorian’s second season. They came up with an awfully cute Tiger and gave him that classic cajun spin, and we named him Mandeaux. For those who don’t know, The Mandalorian is a Star Wars spinoff streaming on Disney+ and it’s excellent. It centers around a bounty hunter affectionately referred to as Mando (short for Mandalorian, i.e. the bounty hunter people like Boba Fett) who protects “The Child” better known as Baby Yoda.

Well not long after that, I got a cease and desist letter from a shoe company, also named Mandeaux, (based in Alaska????) and they insisted I take down the link. Darn it!

But wouldn’t you know, we were blessed with good fortune. Because in last week’s episode of The Mandalorian, we learn the name of Baby Yoda. His name is Grogu, and thanks to inspiration from our fearless leader PodKatt, we rebranded the little guy.

Folks, they tried to keep him from you. They tried to hold our boy down. But they failed to keep this cute and noble tiger caged up and he. is. BACK.

Behold Greauxgu the Tiger!
