Whenever you see the golden arches, you immediately associate it with things like hamburgers, french fries, milkshakes, chicken nuggets, Ronald McDonald, and diarrhea.

and your butt becomes a fountain

The subject of this week’s Saturday Six comes to us from Graphic Designer Clif Dickens, who took some well know brands and reworked their slogans into what we really think of them.

On a side note: Did you know if you spell the word “stationery” wrong the internet implodes? True fact.

On another side note: If you would like to revisit grade school briefly and partake in some more Diarrhea lyrics, click here.
