Haven't you done enough, McDonald's?

Didn't you scar us badly enough with your Ronald McDonald makeover?

Apparently not, as the fast food chain is set to unveil a new mascot named Happy, saying via press release that the "animated Happy Meal character brings fun and excitement to kids' meals while also serving as an ambassador for balanced and wholesome eating."

Happy will officially be unveiled on May 23.

We’re on board with encouraging "kids to enjoy fruits, vegetables, low-fat dairy and wholesome beverages," as McDonald’s strives to accomplish.

Nibble by nibble, small swallow by small swallow, watch this little guy melt the Web into mush now:

What is it about fast food chains and the desire of some grown men to have memories of them inked on to their skin forever?

First, there was the dude in Norway who got a McDonald's receipt tattooed on to his forearm.

And now there's the anonymous guy on YouTube who has a photo of the KFC Double Down etched on his body.

Featured in a commercial for the restaurant (below), the bushy-faced individual says he got a Double Down on a date with his girlfriend and "I guess that's how it all started."

Some people legitimately can't eat gluten for medical reasons, but Jimmy Kimmel recently discovered this week that lot of people don't eat it because ...

Well, we honestly don't know. In fact, they can't even tell you what gluten is, so if you're waiting for an explanation that has any merit, don't hold your breath.

NOTE: If you're going to swear off of a type of food, you may want to have some grasp of what it is you're eschewing and why. Just an idea, gluten-free citizens:

Gluten, according to the Internet, is composed of the gliadin and glutenin proteins and is responsible for the elasticity of dough. The more you know!

The reason people hate on it? Gluten intolerance is commonly known as celiac disease, which affects one in every 141 people in the United States.

Sounds pretty rough ... if you actually have that. Not if someone in your yoga class told you gluten is bad and you talk about it just to sound trendy.

More classic Kimmel clips after the jump ...

Mitch Hedberg passed away in 2005.

But an employee at Stan’s Donuts in Chicago made sure the comedian’s memory would live on forever this week - or at least until customer toss their receipts in the trash.

Equipped with the ability to control the type on receipts, Jon Becker posted the following image of one on Reddit. It quotes one of Hedberg’s best-known bits and reads:

"I don’t need a receipt for a doughnut. I’ll just give you the money, you give me the doughnut. End of transaction. We don’t need to bring ink and paper into this."

Many trees around the nation likely agree with this statement.

Ain't nothin' gonna hold her down! Not 50 pounds of butter and not a career-crushing scandal!

Paula Deen is back! (At least in her mind.)

The celebrity chef is kicking off a 20-city live show tour this summer with stops so far planned for Savannah, Atlanta, Nashville, and San Antonio. The show will feature a live cooking demonstration, butter, musical chairs, butter, an audience-participation dating game, and more butter.

"That's the excitement of it all — my fans get to be part of the show," Deen said.

Paula Deen Pleads

Deen's comeback attempt is nearly a year after her career was nearly ended following allegations of racism in the restaurants she owned and her own admission of using a racial slur. 

Deen apologized on both the Today show and in People Magazine, and in the same interview compared herself to football player Michael Sam who came out as gay in 2013.

Ronald McDonald has a new look and a new social media presence, taking over the McDonald's Twitter account and debuting a long-awaited makeover.

Ronald McDonald (not to be confused with the Ron McDonalds pitching Taco Bell's new breakfast menu) also appears to have tamed his wild red hair.

His oversized shoes have stayed the same, however. Phew.

Ron is getting a new gig as well as a new appearance:

No one mention this to Lindsay Lohan, but someone has come out with a more efficient way to get wasted.

It's called Palcohol and it's exactly what it sounds like: powdered alcohol.

The federal government approved the item this week, although there remains a discrepancy over just how much Palcohol can be sold at once. 

Therefore, it's not available to consumers... yet.

Sorry, chocolate crucifix.

You are no longer the strangest food item we've come across this week.

For reasons that will likely remain a mystery forever, Häagen-Dazs has come out with two vegetable ice cream flavors in Japan: Tomato Cherry and Carrot Orange.

Take a look at their containers while we go deposit our lunch someplace…

Vegetable Ice Cream

These flavors will be released on May 12.
