I dedicate this cartoon to the Mayor of University Place who thinks University Place is a silly name for a town that never had a University in the place (see TNT editorial). Not all University Place people are sold on the name change idea but what do they know? They live in U.P. how smart can they be?

Demographic data according to Wikipedia:
There were 12,684 housing units at an average density of 1,512.4 per square mile. The racial makeup of the city was 75.87% White, 8.74% African American, 0.72% Native American, 7.47% Asian, 0.56% Pacific Islander, 1.35% from other races, and 5.29% from two or more races. Hispanic or Latino of any race were 3.84% of the population.

Has anyone consulted "Lonely University Place Guy" about this? Could adversely impact his brand.

This is a golden profit-making opportunity for our erstwhile friend, Fredo.
How, you ask? Read on...

University Place is named for a non-existent university that isn't in that place. So clearly the plan should be to found the University of University Place. Who wouldn't want to go to UUP? Their mascot could be University of University Place Guy (UUPG)!

it would be SO easy!  just get some internet college to locate an office there!!!  after 100 years the UP name would have meaning!

uh what about UPS just incorporating the f*cking golf course there? the course has value amongst the residents. the US Open has value. no brainer. brands = business = growth.
