Funployees

The Funployees, originally Mooby’s Funployees, are an international street hockey team. They are members of the VASHL.

The franchise was added as part of the 2010 expansion which also included the View Askew Girls and the LA Mings.

In Kevin Smith’s View Askewinerse, the Funployees are the service staff of Mooby’s fast-food restaurants, featured in Dogma and Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back, as well as serving as the backdrop to most of Clerks II.

Mooby the Golden Calf is a fictional children’s television anthropomorphic cow character, a reference to the Old Testament story of the golden calf that was worshiped as a graven idol, parodies Barney the dinosaur and elements of Disney.

Team History

The FUNployees have the distinctive pleasure of having one of their players paint a fellow teammate, an innocent Flyers t-shirt and the floors of the Brantford Quality Inn with his puke. It was a move of complete disrespect towards the Philadelphia Flyers.

In all seriousness, though, the FUNployees may demonstrate the underdog values of the VASHL best. For a team that had to endure the hottest jerseys ever and then the most ramshackle jerseys ever, not to mention numerous dropout players, they haven’t done so bad for themselves. That lays in their ability to evolve to the seemingly never-ending series of changes they face. While other teams have maintained a consistent lineup since they began, the FUNployees have always welcomed new players to their team and been able to accommodate them.

Though the FUNployees have yet to reach to finals, they still managed to stand their ground against their fellow VASHL teams, especially when some betting has come into play. Their strong team camaraderie, sense of humor and willingness to work under any situation has made them a trademark team of the VASHL.
