From Makeup-Covered Severed Heads to Abby Road Walkabouts

These Ronald McDonald parodies just go to show you the massive influence that that "cheerful" hamburger clown has had over pop culture. Perhaps the most famous clown of all-time (well maybe behind Bozo) was adapted by McDonald's in 1963 and has been giving children kid's meals (and nightmares) ever since.

When it comes to Ronald McDonald parodies some people have chosen to get even scarier than the clown himself. One depiction displays the Joker dressed up as Ronald which somehow makes the Joker even more terrifying (if that was possible). Another piece of Ronald McDonald art has the clown decapitated and being dangled from the hands of Perseus.

As long as McDonalds continues to dominate, so will Ronald McDonald and his creepy clown face.
