Grimace represents that feeling parents get when the kids all start clamoring "Let's go to McDonald's" and the thought of one more 'BigMac' causes the muscles in their throat to start contracting in that all too familiar 'gag' reflex'.
Grimace is their way of trying to make choking down one more just so the kids will shut up, somewhat more pleasant.

PENIS CHARMING....where are you?

A small piece of meat, lying behind the counter for years, nuked by a leaky microwave unit, until it grew into something scary - very scary.

He is an experiment gone bad....this is the only way they could market him as one of Ronald's friends. You know, we must except everyone.....

The grimace is obviously a peice of feces covered in a rare form of fuzzy, purply mold. That would thusly make him a feces/fungus combo.

Kalie I'm so glad you asked!

Grimace (a.k.a. "The Grimace") is a fictional character who is part of the marketing campaign of McDonald's. He is a friend of Ronald McDonald and a large, jolly fellow who looks like a large purple gumdrop with small arms and legs. He is known for his smiling face and simple demeanor. Grimace's name is pronounced /ˈgɹɪməs/ and may have influenced the increasing tendency to pronounce the word "grimace" that way, rather than the traditional /gɹɪˈmes/.

In the first cycle of McDonaldland commercials beginning in 1971, Grimace was the "Evil Grimace", with several pairs of arms with which to steal Triple-Thick Shakes. After that first campaign, the character was revised to be one of the "good guys", and his number of arms was reduced to two.

Today, Grimace is generally portrayed in McDonalds' commercials and merchandise as a sort of well-meaning doofus, whose clumsy antics provide a comic foil to the more serious and mature Ronald McDonald.

Grimace is a fantasy character, and not intended to be anything specific. However, ever since the character's introduction there has been much speculation (though much of it tongue-in-cheek) about his appearance. Because the majority of McDonald's characters more or less directly represent a food product sold at the restaurants (ie: Mayor McCheese, Fry Guys, McNugget Buddies, etc) many have naturally tried to guess as to what, if any, food product Grimace is supposed to represent.

A common speculation is that he is supposed to be a giant McNugget, but his appearance pre-dates the release of that food. A better explanation is that he is a taste bud, though there are many more fanciful attempted explanations. In reality, Grimace's "official" role, according to McDonald's, continues to be to represent the chain's famous milkshakes. However, he does this out of love for the taste, and not because he is in any way a shake-based creature himself.

According to the McDonald's website:

Grimace is a big, loving, fuzzy purple fellow who is Ronald McDonald's best friend. He's sure Ronald is the world's ultimate authority on everything. While Grimace loves all McDonald's foods, he's absolutely crazy about milkshakes. Grimace is very enthusiastic and eager to try new things. His joyous spirit helps everyone overlook the fact he's a little slow and clumsy sometimes.

Grimace also has a relative, Uncle O'Grimacey, a green-colored Irish-version of himself. O'Grimacey was a holiday-themed character used by McDonald's in the 1980s in celebrating St. Patrick's Day, in particular marketing its Shamrock Shake.

According to Clerks: The Animated Series, "Nothing can kill The Grimace."

...First of all..NSAAddict needs a

I dunno about Grimace...I'm still figuring this one out:

"Gordie: Mickey is a mouse, Donald is a duck, Pluto is a dog. What's Goofy...?
Teddy: He's a dog, he's definitely a dog...
Chris: He can't be a dog, he wears a hat and drives a car...
Vern: Yeah, that is weird. What the hell is Goofy?"

Goofy is a dog. He drives a car and wears a hat and all just like Donald and the rest. Pluto is a dog dog, meant to be seen as a pet. I've known all that; I'm still trying to work out why most of the characters wear shirts but not pants {even though they're not anatomically correct, I know where a duck's dick is or whatever}.

grimace is a two-part word used when thinking about such creepy characters. i am shy on clowns, only have one other phobia besides them...and ronald started it all. needless to say, i ain't gun-shy around em. the only good clown is a dead one!
now, i bet if i had grown up not being a vegetarian from my hippie mom's idea of best nutrition, then i would have a place in my heart for those other blokes. nah, i even cant fathom the easter bunny, santa, and definitely the lolly pop guild.
