'Death' Of Wendy's Spokesman Spawns New Campaign, Menu Items

Perhaps explaining the mysterious appearance of a finger in a bowl of chili at a San Jose Wendy's earlier this week, mordant orange "explains" who the finger may have found its way into the bowl, writing, "The body of actor Roger Eschbacher who played the much detested Mr. Wendy was found earlier this past summer in an abandoned warehouse; stripped naked with hands and feet bound to a chair. Eschbacher was found face down in a large bowl of Wendy’s chili."

Furthering the humor, and referencing the death of Wendy's founder Dave Thomas, mordant orange explains Wendy's new, "A Little Bit of Dave in Every Bite" ad campaign and lists the burger chain's new menu items which include:

  • Dave's Five Finger Chili
  • Dave's Big Back Bacon Classic
  • Fillet O' Dave
  • Baked Potato with sour cream, bacon, chives and bits of real Dave
Not to end a joke before it's time has come, mordant orange found one Wendy's executive who, referring to the new campaign, said, "We listen to our customers, they wanted Dave Thomas and we’re going to give him to them."
