The holiday season is about three things: Love, peace, and seeing which major international brand will offend the most people, thereby earning itself enough free advertising to coast well into February. Last year, it was Starbucks. This year, that honor may just go to the fine folks at McDonald’s who accidentally put an ass in thigh-high socks on their cup.
Before we all start freaking out (and expect the outrage to hit sometime this afternoon after all the laughter stops), it’s important to note that what appears on the cup (you can see it below! No snickering!) is supposed to look like a pair of warm woolen mittens. Add a few pen strokes, however, and the picture looks much, much more x-rated.
