a melancholy farewell….

A couple of days ago I was saddened and relieved at the same time to hear that Burger King has retired their mascot “The King.”  While some companies have fun loving mascots like Ronald McDonald, The Trix Rabbit, Lucky the Leprechaun, and Chuck E. Cheese, “The King” was just creepy.  I guess it was a good mascot in the sense that you definitely remembered him, but seeing “The King” peering in people’s houses or waking up in their beds with that scary grin gave many of us the creeps!!!  So I bid thee farewell “The King”, you have creeped me out for the last time!
