Maybe an animal beginning with "P" would be a good Mnemonic device (and good
for alliteration; think "The PHP Panda" or "The PHP Platypus".)  Hmm, I
guess Panda and Platypus aren't particularly "powerful" animals, though. :/

Other animals beginning with "P":

Panther (cheesy)

Of course, the Penguin is already spoken for. :)

Personally, I don't have a problem with the current PHP logo... From a
marketing standpoint, I don't know; has MySQL become a more attractive
prospect to the pointy haired bosses of the world since they streamlined
their logo and added a Dolphin?  It would be interesting to know.

If PHP was going to adopt a mascot, I kinda like the idea of the Platypus.
If you want to force a metaphor, think of PHP as an interesting language
that fits between traditional scripting languages and the HTTP server - sort
of like the Platypus is an interesting critter that fits somewhere between
mammal and.. whatever else. :)
