Replace the image of Jimmy Wales with that of a golden retriever

Jimmy Wales is supporting the free dissemination of user-contributed information. His plaintive face appears on the header of Wikipedia, pleading for user donations to keep Wikipedia viable. However, after the first few times, it becomes disturbing and offputting. We believe that replacing his face with that of a becoming and equally plaintive Golden Retriever would negate the offputting factor, and in fact increase the appealing factor to a significant degree, resulting in a measurable increase in donations to Wikipedia.

      I will personally send him $5 just to replace that plaintive mug of his with the adorable face of a golden retriever. Seriously, can he please stop looking at us? For like a minute? It's getting really old. Who is he, Oliver Twist? Stop. Just stop.

      Would you send $5 to the face at the link below? Of course you would. You probably wouldn't even think about it. Jimmy Wales needs to find a golden retriever to represent Wikipedia.

      I'd donate to the puppy IN A SECOND. Mr. Whaleys face however, is reminiscent of an angry hobo, jingling a change filled starbucks cup at me D:

      A flounder would also be an improvement.
