When you're designing a cartoon mascot for a restaurant, your #1 priority should be to make sure it doesn't resemble FECES. People on Twitter have been making fun of the new Denny's mascot, because it's supposed to be a sausage link . . . but it looks way more like POOP, with arms, legs, and a little hipster fedora on its head.
Someone posted a photo of a giant display they put up in one of their restaurants. And someone else posted a photo of the same mascot on one of their menus.
