The guys over at McDonald's introduced a new character named Happy today, and, well, just take a look for yourself.

If your reaction to that picture was something along the lines of "HOLY CRAP, WHAT IS THAT HORRIFYING MONSTROSITY?" you're not alone. And because we here at The Huffington Post are professional journalists, we decided to investigate just how much scarier the ironically named Happy gets as you zoom closer and closer in.
Answer: a lot scarier.
Predictably, Twitter also found Happy a little less than appealing. Warning: These are real-life tweets containing real-life profanity. Hide your children.
@McDonalds What the fuck is that creature?
