The Talented Mr. Grimace and others
Background: Well this is our first "official" question by one of
you...our lovely viewers of this wonderful slice of the internet.
Well this got out little truth gears grinding and we thought "Yeah,
where the hell did the Mayor and Sheriff go". One Jason “Last name
removed” sent this question to us. Here it is in all of its

I HAVE A STUPID
QUESTION! Last night I was watching the World Series and there was
a commercial (One of the reasons the damn thing lasted 4+ hours)
that I seen
a few times for McDonalds, and I was wondering, what the
hell does Grimace represent. I now that the walking chicken McNuggets (they wobble more then they walk I guess considering they ain't got legs) represent chicken McNuggets, the walking Pom-Poms
represent French fries, or the Mayor with the Big Mac head and the
Sheriff with the Quarter Pounder for a head represent a Big Mac and
a Quarter Pounder. So, what is does Grimace represent.
question. I have just thought of this one right now, what ever
happened to the Mayor with the Big Mac head and the Sheriff with the
Quarter Pounder for a head?
as a thought, if you do choose to find the answer to these
questions, you should find these first before you piss off McDonalds
trying to find out what is in there food.
Info: Ok, here
goes hope this answer helps out. After calling into the corporate
office we learned the answers to both. It turns out that Grimace is
actually supposed to represent the shakes at the golden arches.
Back before 1975 or so Grimace was actually a four-armed creature
that found it fun to go around ganking everyone's great tasting milk
shakes. This was the official answer we think there might be a
little more. *Start conspiracy theory...now* After his long run of
getting fixes from peoples shakes the crew of McD's took Grimace
into a room and told him he had a problem. After the conflict
turned physical while he tried to escape with Ronald's strawberry
milk shake his arms were "accidentally" ripped off and he was sent
off to a secret government facility. After a few years of "shake"
torture and an incredible amount of weight gain caused as an after
effect he came out as the big fat ball of happiness we know today.
Now for the
second one. There really wasn't too much to go on for an answer to
the disappearance of the Mayor or the Sheriff. The official word is
they went on a permanent "hiatus" take that as you will but we think
they might have sent them in a crate to a third world country cause
they just weren't "working out as part of the McDonald's Family".
