First person who says "redskin potatoes" gets a punch in the dick.  And no, not the nice kind.

The joke is even older than that. When the Washington Bullets changed their name, David Letterman did a monologue joke that went something like this...

The Washington Bullets announced today that they will be changing the name of the team. Apparently they wanted a name less associated with crime. They will now be know as just The Bullets.

Just change the name to "Pigskins". The emblem could be a silhouette of a football with the letter "W" in it for Washington. Plus, their shortened nickname, the 'Skins' would still be useable.

On a related note, I always thought the Washington Bullets should have kept their name and changed the logo to a bullet train.

Something like this:

Could always change to Foreskins if the term "skins" is the important part to keep ;)
