Fun fact: Turds are tapered so your butthole doesn't slam shut.

Marketing disaster or marketing genius. Thank of all the free viral advertisement they are getting. It's not like they have a reputation to maintain.

They should just go with the whole turd thing. Call the mascot "Denny The Happypoo."

Ad:

Why is Denny a Happypoo?

*the turd speaks* "Well, it only cost $5.99 to make me! Three pancakes, two strips of bacon, and two eggs, sunny side up! And don't forget the pot of coffee for my partner, Denny the Happypee!"

*another turd speaks in a French accent* (sorry BH)

"Eet cost $153. to make me, sacre bleu!! Yays, dere was escargot to die for, and beef bourguignon, ooh la la, and flamiche...but, you know, eet all goes down the shitter anyways...."

Voice Over:

Let your waste be poo, not dollars! Eat at Denny's! It all goes down the shitter anyways!

To be perfectly serious here, is Denny's really that bad?

I think I've eaten there maybe twice in my life, but I don't recall it being awful.

From them eating their own food, none of them have squeezed out a solid turd in years so they didn't recognize it as such.



"It did not really matter what we expected from life, but rather what life expected from us. We needed to stop asking about the meaning of life, and instead to think of ourselves as those who were being questioned by life – daily and hourly. Our answer must consist not in talk and meditation, but in right action and in right conduct. Life ultimately means taking the responsibility to find the right answer to its problems and to fulfill the tasks which it constantly sets for each individual." Viktor Frankl, Man's Search for Meaning, 1946.

Long answer...

yes.


Their slogan should be:

Eat here, do this ... involuntarily.

LMAO! Big Grin Big Grin Big Grin


It's bad enough it's a turd, but the insult to injury is adding the word "slam" to the slogan.

I mean, is "taking a slam" that archaic already? Confused

Didn't the new mascot have a bite part in "Caddy Shack"?
