Denny's new mascot looks like a turd ?

Oh, Denny's.

How many meetings did you have before you decided on using an anthropomorphic poop-like sausage for one of your Grand Slam breakfast mascots?

Not enough, clearly. I feel a little sad for you right now.

Good job on the tiny fedora though.

Denny's "The Hobbit" Menu Video Review

What could be more enchanting to a J.R.R. Tolkien fan than hearty meals which evoke the rustic grandeur of The Shire?

Denny's hopes to woo geeks with a Hobbit-themed menu, will probably be successful

As if you actually needed an excuse to have "second breakfast," Denny's -- home of the mozzarella stick grilled cheese sandwich -- will be offering up a new menu inspired by The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey starting on November 6.

AdAge has a page from the menu as well as a nerd-baiting TV spot. (via Blastr) Read the rest
