You sly bastard! HA!
My first thought was a Pruplr Peruvian potato (an actual variety).
I heard it called "grimmace".Not sure why... Maybe I'll wikipedia the word, see if they can offer any insight.

Cool find, Bullseye! Thanks for the smile!

Oh, BTW-- You've been given the "HONEST SCRAP AWARD"! [See my today's post]

Have some fun with it!

Found this on Wikipedia. Doesn't explain much, but... how much about a wumpus is there to explain? [I say a lot-- like exactly what the hail a wumpus is...

Grimace is a large, purple anthropomorphic being of the "wumpus" species with short arms and legs. He is known for his slow-witted demeanor. His most common expression is the word "duh". Originally, Grimace was the "Evil Grimace", with two pairs of arms with which to steal milkshakes. After that first campaign, the character was revised to be one of the "good guys", and his number of arms was reduced by two. Commercials and merchandise generally portrayed him as a well-meaning simpleton, whose clumsy antics provided a comic foil to Ronald McDonald. The character was retained after the streamlining of the characters in the '80s. Voiced by Denise Foster.

Evil grimmace, eh... Now I'm wondering why Mr.McD was hanging out with naught but unsavory characters... Hamburgler stealing those, Grimmace stealing shakes...
Maybe Ken was right-- CIA infiltrators...

Well in real life a grimmace is the face you make after you have taken some awful medicine. Maybe a subconscience name from the ad agency?
