He's still odd looking, but if the kids like him who cares!

Eat fries and play in the playground.

Ronald McDonald has always been creepy... Then again, I'm not a fan of clowns, so I may be a bit biased.

Ronald is being replaced because now he's recognized as being evil for giving junk food to kids, I think.

Am I the only one who noticed that the poster who started a thread talking about McDonald's "creepy" Ronald McDonald is named "Whopper"?

What affiliation do you have with Burger King, Mr. OP?

Burger King played around with the King's image before they finally scrapped him entirely. I predict that Ronald McDonald will end the same way.
