The WenDonald's King: The Virgil to Your Dante For a Nightmarish Journey Through the 9th Circle of Fast Food Hell

I just wanted to throw something up here that I drew tonight. Peggy asked me to draw up a mascot for a McDonald's/Wendy's/Burger King mega burger chain. Some business school thing. I think it's kind of funny, but not so much for the whole premise of the drawing (though it is sort of funny), but because of how sad/pleading the mascot-hybrid's eyes are. It's as if he's saying, "Please. Make the hurting stop." I was going for the very elusive jovial/terrifying look of the Burger King guy, but this is what I got. Anyway. For your amusement/derision.

What are you covering up in the corner....?

Let me out of this hole! Hilarious. You should draw more, merely for the intent to entertain me.

Your next hybrid should have Jared from Subway cross-pollenated with Colonel Sanders and the Taco Bell Chihuahua. Sort of a second string fast food medly.

No need to include Dan from Del Taco. Too regional.

he kind of looks like the evil clown from House of 1000 Corpse's

Those are very sad eyes, Crane. It kind of makes me wonder though what it would be like if those three giants combined their forces into one fast food establishment. I suppose it'd be like the Wal-Mart of fast food. Or, Golden Corral.

Anyway, just to add my interpretation, I kind of see that face as a guy at a jam band concert (Phish, Dave Matthews, whoever) who's just realized he's wearing clown make-up and a crown, and that he's at a jam band concert.

His eyes are sad because it looks like was trying to crawl through a slit in the paper and got stuck.

That's totally hilarious Heath. I laughed at that one because it took me a second to figure out what you were talking about, and when I did, bam. Joke right in the face.

Ever a time when I am not hilarious? Even when I am crying, I am hilarious.
