Where’d you get the name Fluther?
A fluther is a group of jellyfish, like a gaggle of geese (or a taint of tilapia).
“Fluther” is pronounced /‘flʌ ðɚ/. It rhymes with “brother” and “mother”.

Furthermore…why is the jellyfish the mascot?

What do you have against jellyfish, anyway?

jstringham21's avatar

Nothing. I was just inquiring.

Since a Fluther is a group of jellyfish the natural mascot would be a jellyfish…

jstringham21— Why the hostility against jellyfish? What did they ever do to you?

jstringham21's avatar

Relax Chuck. I never ‘dissed the jellyfishes. I only asked why they are the mascot. Seems strange for a spineless sea creature to be the mascot of anything.

@richmarshall – why call it Fluther in the first place?
