Super Sonic

Last month my husband visited South Carolina on a business trip and thoughtfully brought me back a cup from drive-in burger joint Sonic (we don't have one near us) featuring tater tot mascot Totty. I'm actually impressed he recognized this as food with eyes. To me it looks like a piece of shag carpeting rather than a tater tot. I probably would not have recognized it as such if it were not for Brandon of the Waffle Whiffer Zone posting a Totty bag on flickr.

Here's one side:

Totty doesn't seem to be featured on their web site, but check out Tater Taunt for a somewhat less friendly version.

I love this advertising character. I saved a cup from my last Sonic visit in December. I kept meaning to blog about it, but I forgot. I'm glad someone got around to it because that tot guy is awesome!
