Grimace

A while ago I stumbled upon this picture, which makes me laugh every time I look at it.

If you don't get it, I'm not going to explain it to you.

But it got me thinking about how I always liked Grimace, the McDonaldland character. I mean, he was a buffoon and an oaf, but there was something cute about him.



What I didn't realize, however, is that goofy old Grimace started off as Evil Grimace. You can see for yourself in this old McDonald's commercial.



Ah, the good old days. When an unsupervised clown could have custody of two children, lead them on a mission of vigilante justice to liberate some cups from an anthropomorphic turd, and then fill the cups - which were just handled by a walking and talking piece of shit - with soda and milkshakes.
