Was McDonald Medusa's Surname?

I love it when mythology and pop culture come together. discovers this sculpture.

I will admit there are some obvious similarities: Medusa turned people to stone if they made eye contact with her; McDonalds' food turns people's arteries into stone.  IO9 may have carried the comparison a bit too far with this speculation:

I'm assuming Perseus traveled to the bowels of McDonaldland and collected the spokesclown's head to prevent a one-kilometer-tall Grimace from destroying Argos. Also, Ronald's blood turns into the Fry Kids when it splatters the earth.
Everyone knows that Ronald doesn't have blood.  He has Big Mac "special sauce" running through his veins.
