McDonald’s new 2016 holiday cups have become the “butt” of jokes on social media because of its rather unfortunate design.
The drawing is supposed to look like a pair of mittens with the phrase “warmest greetings” emblazoned below.
But after author Sam Sykes drew fingers and a thumb on the thumb portion of the mitten and voilà, instant sophomore humor.

Social media went wild with the redesign.
When someone draws fingers on McDonald’s mittens and ‘spreading holiday cheer’ takes on entirely new meaning. Good God. pic.twitter.com/k9DZRiJabf
