A: Okay, so we’ve got a colorful cast of characters to help promote our burger chain, let me introduce them to you. First we’ve got the chief mascot Ronald McDonald, he’s a clown.
B: A clown—okay, so a circus theme. Cool. So this guy with the top hat and fancy suit is the ringmaster.
A: No, he’s the mayor.
B: …the mayor?
A: Yes, Mayor McCheese. And this is Big Mac, he’s the chief of police. Then we’ve got the Hamburglar here…
B: Okay, sure, not a circus, a village. With a little slapstick crime problem. I’m with you.
A: …and Captain Crook, the pirate.
B: …a seaside village? I guess…
A: We’re gonna sell fish sandwiches.
B: At the burger place.
A: We hear people up in New England like them.
B: Okay, fine, so the clown lives in a seaside village with a mayor, a big-city police chief, a 1920s vaudeville burglar, and a… 1720s… pirate…
A: COLORFUL CAST OF CHARACTERS.
B: Okay, okay! Speaking of colorful, who… err, what… is that?
A: Oh, that’s Grimace! He’s a… he’s… well, he’s Grimace! He loves shakes.
B: And he’s purple because…
A: Well, they’re frosty shakes, right?, so they might give you a bit of a chill, so he’s sort of blue, err, purple with cold from eating all the tasty shakes he loves…
B: …Is he, like, a _ghost_? He gives you the chills and shakes ‘cause he’s a scary ghost…?
A: HE’S JUST GRIMACE.
B: FINE. You’re promoting your tasty frosty shakes with a purple blob whose name means “an expression of distaste.” Fine. Anyone else? You’ve covered burgers (three times), fish sandwiches, shakes, and the clown who thinks it’s a good idea to come here for dinner, what are you missing… oh how about french fries?
A: Yes, we have fries! Produced by… the Wizard of Fries! See, here he is with his creations, the Fry Guys.
B: …Well. Now all this makes sense. A wizard did it. And by wizard, clearly we mean a drugged-out hippie.
A: …well, I do kinda have the munchies now…
