Hey trebuchet!

I'm not really sure. And I'm afraid it's already become EM's mascot.

Maybe it has something to do with that famous tale, The Smiley Riding the Tortoise, and the Hare...

Tortoise and the Hare Ha! Steady and slow may win the race -- but then there's no time to stop and smell the roses

I think that tortoise could use some skates with heavily inflated tires. He doesn't look to be going fast enough to generate much air resistance, so we can dispense with the boattail.
