Woodsy Owl now seriously sucks

Here's another then-and-now photo that serves as an example of the decline of civilization.

200701151651 I am shocked and dismayed to discover that Woodsy’s patrons, the USDA Forest Service, has chosen to scrap the plump, welcoming design of “Old Woodsy” [left]with an outfit that looks like a man with a giant chicken nugget for a head. It is my duty to bring this to your attention. They put shoes and a shirt on Woodsy!

I’m calling you out USDA Forest Service: Bring back Old Woodsy, perhaps the most adorable federally-owned mascot in the history of this great nation.
