My Uncle used to teach middle school classes. I believe he was teaching science when he had a class discussion based on the question, "If human
beings went extinct what animal would rise up and take their place." I think they used the nuclear war scenario for man's extinction. The logic of
the discussion somehow ended up concluding that the turtle would take mankind's place. So they came up with the slogan, "Turtle Power". This was in
the 1970's, well before the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Anyway, I think my Uncle would approve wholeheartedly for Bert the Turtle as the
survivalist mascot. Personally I'd pick the cockroach or rat.
