Why do you use a devil as a mascot?

Why do some people get  hung up in some  features of our cute little mascot 
that remind them of devils. You must look at it in a positive way that 
represents FreeBSD like a sporting character that has a sporty attitude. Just  
observe the modern running shoes and it has a harpoon in its hand to signify 
being ready to attack all problems on the way. Linux has only a lazy penguin 
that does not seem to be  doing anything except sitting on its behind.

Hope this answers all questions about this matter
