The Flickr group Weird Advertising Characters is misleadingly named. It should be called Awesome Advertising Characters, because every single picture in here is a winner. Whoever came up with Cheesus is due for some kind of design prize or presidential commendation, and the "Poo! Poo!" Whoopie Cushion graphic is a timeless piece of Americana, right up there with baseball and heart disease. Well, OK, I guess the Clown Motel is kinda weird, but it's probably no worse than any other unfranchised roadside hotel. More images after the jump. Via Laughing Squid.
