And Then There Was That Time The Phillie Phanatic Was On 30 Rock

Only a week after Tina Fey’s Liz Lemon debated the mascot’s gender, the real-deal Phillie Phanatic popped up on last night’s cameo heavy (Emma Stone, Andy Samberg, Mick Foley, Steve Earle) 30 Rock, which caused our green-furred friend to trend worldwide on Twitter. The Phanatic’s gender was settled, after he declared (through subtitles) that he is, in fact, an undersea king who must stop his daughter from marrying the Squid Lord. Sounds about right.
