(Newser) – The NSA has revealed its mascot for Earth Day tomorrow, and though the fact that the agency has a recycling mascot is odd enough, Gizmodo reports it's "an anthropomorphized and oddly buff recycling bin named Dunk" that "breaks new ground creepiness-wise." The Verge, meanwhile, thinks he's the "stuff of nightmares." Dunk was created out of a partnership with Maryland schools to encourage students to limit what they throw away. The mascot also touts the NSA's recycling efforts in a lengthy video. Dunk joins the NSA's other cartoon characters, including Decipher Dog, Crypto Cat, and a language analyst fox named Rosetta Stone, the Hill reports. (Click for more creepy mascots.)
