mannequins in restaurants

It’s commonplace to see mannequins in retail stores displaying the clothing for sale. Why don’t restaurants have a mannequin couple sitting at a table “eating” the food for sale?

Mannequins are not in restaurants, because mannequins cannot eat. But mannequins are in stores, because mannequins can wear clothes.

Mannequins wearing clothes allow shoppers to visualize clothes more effectively than their folded 2d counterparts on the shelves/racks. Food doesn’t need that… or does it?
Maybe if someone could convince subway that people need a demonstration of how to WEAR their food? I’d love to see that.

Some McDonald’s restaurants have Ronald statues. I find them to be creepy and in poor taste. Booo Ronald!
