Well, it's not always random:

   Perl: Camel (mascot, I guess that makes sense)
   Webmaster: Spider (irritating animal metaphor, but allright)
   ASP: Snake (again, continuing that metaphor)
   Red Hat: Guy in a Red Hat (They're getting lazy)
   CSS: Fish (huh?)
   VBScript: Dog, also Seal??
   Information Architecture: Polar Bear??
   Oracle: Various Insects (improper connotations? :)

Hmmmm...  makes one wonder.
