People Had a Craptastic Reaction to Denny’s New Poop Mascot
Denny’s new mascot is turning almost as many heads as it is stomachs.
The mascot has caused quite a stir because, uh, how do we put this eloquently? Well, there’s really no pleasant way to say it, so let’s just come right out with it: it looks like excrement.

Fecal matter is not really the type of image you want to project when trying to entice customers to eat at your restaurant, unless maybe your goal is to appeal to that dog demographic that make up about zero percent of the clientele.
And while the mascot is getting a lot of attention now, he’s actually been around for a little while already, having drawn comparisons to South Park‘s infamous Mr. Hankey.

Whatever the reason Denny’s went in this direction (read: down the toilet), the Twittersphere had a field day with the sight of the elongated brown fella.
This really is Denny's new mascot? Really? If this was there #1, what was there #2? pic.twitter.com/i6KYJGPZre

You better eat that lunch! The Denny's turd spent all morning slaving over a hot toilet bowl to make it.

The new Denny's mascot looks like a piece of poop. I don't know what demographic they're trying to reach, but I'm pretty sure I'm not in it.

Denny's turd just looks super concerned that you ordered from Denny's. He's all "Okay, but I think you've made some poor life choices."

He can't stay long: he's just passing through.

Denny's new mascot looks like a turd wearing a hat. Why did a group of people vote yes for this in the Denny's staff meeting? pic.twitter.com/iFQv6lKOHH
