A new mascot introduced by the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission (USCPSC) on Wednesday elicits a mix of confused and grateful responses, as Vapo McJuicy arrives to warn of the dangers of liquid nicotine.
In just over two hours after revealing McJuicy to the unsuspecting Twitterverse, the USCPSC garnered over 1,100 likes and 195 retweets. The tweet features a graphic of Vapo, shaped like a container of liquid nicotine, and what appears to be a text conversation between the character and his agency.

“Vapo McJuicy! What? Exciting! What are you doing here?!” the conversation begins.
“Save him, Fed!” McJuicy responds. “I’m not here for your manners. I’m here to tell Americans that liquid nicotine can be toxic to children!”
Vapo then asks people to make sure the liquid nicotine is stored in the childproof packaging it comes in, seal it tightly, and lock it out of the sight and reach of children after use.
A Twitter user said McJuicy’s existence was likely the result of someone’s lack of sobriety.
“[W]whatever the design is _definitely_ high right now,” they said.
Another said the mascot was “stupid” and that its creator should be “fired and never allowed to work in PR again”.
Another simply asked, “What is this?”
Others, however, were very grateful.
“Finally a use of my tax money that I approve”, a user said.
“Hello to whoever runs this account and no one else,” said another.
Yet another called McJuicy an “instant classic”.
“This is absolutely the best use of our tax dollars. I’m not being sarcastic, I love this account,” another user said. tweeted.

The USCPSC ultimately ruled that the positive response outweighed the negative or confusion.
“Oh wow. Y’all really love Vapo McJuicy.”, they said.
