The Storm Family Mascot

Most families don't have a mascot. The Storm clan does. This mascot was recruited mainly because of its nose. It is large and it can smell. And its glasses can see through pretensiousness. And the white hair is a bonus in order to add an air of quiet civility. The mascot has several useful purposes: It can be paired with anyone, in any game, and everyone knows that the mascot's partner will lose; the mascot will appreciate every meal it is fortunate enough to be served and will treat the meal with the reverance it deserves; the mascot's eyes will glaze over quite often around Kevin's table because the mascot will have no idea what anyone is talking about; the mascot will wonder who born Gerald because he really is funny; and finally the mascot will look at Jim with respect as always.
