Golden Chick’s Mascot Perplexes Me

I pulled into my neighborhood outpost for the Richardson-based Golden Chick chain, and I was informed that they had run out of yardbird. (The horror!) As I waited in the parking lot for my grub, I had time to stare at the mascot, whose name could not be ascertained through 30 seconds of Googling, and contemplate two questions:

1. Is there another restaurant whose mascot is an anthropomorphized version of the very food it serves?

2. Why the glasses?
