    McDonald's scary Happy Meal mascot - May. 20, 2014

    I'm on the fence about it being scary or not, because I remember when the Grimace was the Evil Grimace, had six arms, and had wierd pockets for fries in hi body.

    I also remember being scared that the Hamburglar might take a bite out of Mayor McCheese's head, and then kill Big Mac the cop in a struggle.

    Even Captain Crook wanted to eat the semi-sentient Filet-o-Fish in their watery home.

    Food which is ready to eat and sentient at the same time is a little scary to me. Even those jokes about the M&M guys getting chunks bitten out of them is a little creepy.

    And remember Popplers? "Because you'd eat them too." Yum!

    I'm on the fence now about how scary it might be. I don't know where the brain would be, given that Happy contains an actual meal. How does his digestive tract work? Where are his lungs? Is he still alive once you've eaten the meal? Does McDonald's cremate its trash so these things aren't walking everywhere?

    That picture of Grimace makes it look like he's actually been eating McDonalds every single day.

    ^ True.
    Were they actually hinting that their clients are evil gluttonous beings trying to eat McDonalds? :D
    Do they become less evil if they pay for the food? :D :D :D

    I concur that's the creepiest mascot they ever had.
    And to add to that an all time favorite!

    It must have been a tough day in their marketing/advertisement department to come up with that one. "Hmm... let's sort of take a happy meal and slap a face on it. Might as well give it arms and legs, too, so we can have some teenager wear it as a costume on location to interact with the kids. Our work is done here, fellas."

    Grimace is a funny bit of irony. He is a tastebud that shills for Rotten Ronnie and his name describes the face I make when I taste that crappy pseudo-food.

    But pseudo-food just doesn't have that je ne sais quoi needed for their commercials.

    The use of mascot so kids eat those burgers is sh1tty. I mean I don't care if a consenting adult eats all the fast food they want but to make it more appealing to kids is just wrong.
    And creepy mascot is creepy.

    To look upon it's mouth is to stare into the infinite darkness of the void.

    Don't worry, the CEO of McDonald's announced that his daughter runs track, which translates to there's hope for the chubby states of 'Mericuhhhh.

    ^ That thing is simultaneously repulsive and yet oddly compelling.
