McDonald's rolls out scary new Happy Meal mascot that seems spawned right out of Little Shop of Horrors

Happy Meal mascot

(NaturalNews) McDonald's has just introduced a new Happy Meal mascot that may have children too scared to finish their meals at all. Sporting a human tongue and human-looking teeth inside a cartoonish box frame with wiry arms, the new Happy Meal mascot looks like a psychotic, red dishwasher that ate a human being and has him hopelessly trapped inside.

The new mascot, McDonald's insists, "is about bringing more fun and excitement to kids meals." (1) Could they possibly mean the kind of excitement that can only be experienced from being chased down by a man-eating cartoon monstrosity? Despite being named the "Happy Meal" mascot, this little devil looks like the stuff of children's nightmares.

Happy Meal. "The meal that eats you before you can eat it" might be a more fitting slogan.

Fashioned after the Little Shop of Horrors?

Maybe it's just me, but this Happy Meal mascot immediately brought to mind Audrey II from the classic musical film Little Shop of Horrors starring Rick Moranis.

In that film, a seemingly innocent-looking plant grows out of control and tries to eat everyone within reach, unleashing a "botanical death rampage" on screen.

According to Bloomberg News (2), social media has erupted with scorn for the new mascot with statements like:

"I think I'm going to have nightmares."
"What the f--- is that creature?"
"THAT! is scary!"

On the good news side, McDonald's does seem to be pushing some healthier food options for kids such as avoiding soda and choosing juice or water instead. On the bad side, however, many children might wet their pants before they have a chance to eat anything at all.

What do you think about McDonald's new nightmarish mascot? Does it make you want to eat some French Fries, or does it make you more worried that something might try to eat your child?

He also engineered the high-level statistical algorithms that power SCIENCE.naturalnews.com, a massive research resource featuring over 10 million scientific studies.

Adams is well known for his incredibly popular consumer activism video blowing the lid on fake blueberries used throughout the food supply. He has also exposed "strange fibers" found in Chicken McNuggets, fake academic credentials of so-called health "gurus," dangerous "detox" products imported as battery acid and sold for oral consumption, fake acai berry scams, the California raw milk raids, the vaccine research fraud revealed by industry whistleblowers and many other topics.

Adams has also helped defend the rights of home gardeners and protect the medical freedom rights of parents. Adams is widely recognized to have made a remarkable global impact on issues like GMOs, vaccines, nutrition therapies, human consciousness.
