Michelin Man (not dead)

Is there a harder working mascot? I think not. Food guides, travel guides, whatever he does with cars, those tiny guide books for kids that brightened up my boring car journeys - what a great guy

He’s a great bunch of tyres.

I like the wee mascot version you sometimes see on lorries

Reckon he’d be easy to spot as a secret diner though

Is saying Michelin Man instead of Bibendum a bit At It?

He’s just a kids entertainment character i mean, or for those nostalgic about being a kid

Watches, t-shirts, cartoons, films, socks, paper, phones, pizzas

what more do you want the guy to do???

I can’t believe I’m defending Mickey Mouse, figurehead of my most-hated corporation

Taking a look at him you wouldn’t exactly say “I’ll have what that guy likes to eat” either would you?
