On the bright side, we know what our Halloween costume is now!

Halloween is two weeks away, and the scariest thing on the internet is Hamburger Helper's four-fingered mascot, Lefty?

Yes, really.

It all began when one Twitter user posed an absurd question to his followers. What, he asked, did they think Lefy's anatomy looked like beneath his signature white glove? Was it the skeleton of a man or a skull and four long finger bones?

The tweet quickly gained traction, and soon the brand joined the discussion, weighing in with a hefty helping of sass. "I cannot be defined by your so-called human standards," Helper replied.

But the question could only be avoided for so long. A few hours later Helper chimed in with a revealing look at what lies beneath that iconic glove. Spoiler: it's not pretty.

So, um... that settles it! Who wants some Hamburger Helper tonight?
