Burger King breaches McDonald's

On Monday, the Burger King burst into a McDonald's restaurant in Rome, Georgia, handed out free hamburgers to customers, danced, and posted for photos with children. Managers called the police, but the Burger King escaped in a white Acura before the fuzz arrived. "Man dressed as Burger King visits West Rome McDonald’s"


  1. Sadly I fear this will one day be looked upon as the start of the Fast Food Civil war.  I pray this King of Burgers protect well his Burger Princes and Burger Princesses for rumor abounds that the Hamburglar has been tasked with revenge most foul.

    1. The Burger King’s castle is well protected, an army’s been raised, and he has the goodwill of the people. Mr. McDonald would be a fool to strike back.

      1. Ah, but McDonald’s has numbers on its side. Unless Burger King can enlist the legions of Wendy’s, I fear BK will be overwhelmed in any war of attrition.

      2. The Burger King’s castle is well protected…

        He can’t hide in that White Castle with his Dairy Queen forever.

    2. “Sadly…?”  More like “Totally awesomely.”  Let slip the Grimaces of War!

      a) Loving the Gangnam Style.
      b) Why is that McDonald’s manager against “all the children?”  tsk-tsk.

    3. Let them reduce their numbers together. When they are exhausted, they will leave this world knowing that Arby’s has my axe.

      1. ‘The Ultimate Angus, 100% Black Angus, lightly seasoned with just the right touch of our special blend of cracked black pepper, herbs, spices, (and Machiavellian philosophy on the art of war)’.  Bon appetit! 

    4. I remember as a kid listening to the comedy album Born to be Tiled by the group Duck’s Breath Mystery Theater, they did a funny segment about a dystopian future devastated by the “Burger Wars”–can’t find it for free anywhere on the internet unfortunately, but you can hear a few disconnected pieces of it here, or just create an account with the site and apparently they let you download two tracks for free, then others are 16 cents a pop (the rest of the album is here)

  2. Some guy in a mask hands me a free hamburger, I’m not going to eat it. Then again, I’m not going to eat BK or McD’s. Also, the answer to “why didn’t you ask first” is always: “Contrition is better than permission” (or, “It’s easy to say No.”)

  3. Managers called the police, but the Burger King escaped in a white Acura before the fuzz arrived.

    If you’re gonna hit a rival burger chain, you don’t dawdle. Remember: “In-N-Out. In-N-Out. That’s what a burger prank is all about.”

    1. It might have gone more smoothly if he’d had help.  You need, say, Five Guys to really pull of a job like this.

    1. As someone who grew up in Rome, Georgia I can say that this is one of the single most exciting events I have witnessed (2nd hand) occurring in this town. The only other exciting thing I’ve noticed in the 20 years of residency was a small statue of Romulus and Remus donated by Benito Mussolini with the inscription “From Big Rome to Little Rome, Your Friend Benito Mussolini”.

    2. me too.  oddsfish people! don’t name your settlement the same as a famous place without at least a “New” jammed in front  (and don’t even do that or someone will come along with Newer/est York)

      1. Hello from Athens, Georgia.  I agree with you, but I’d rather keep the name as it is, because the alternative would probably be Bulldawg, Georgia.

        1. Lucky you, living so close to the Terrapin Brewery.

          (Off-topic, I realize, but I can’t resist a shout-out to the people who make the world a better place by bringing Rye Pale Ale into it.)

  4. God help me, I love the King!  Especially his foray into the NFL!  And has anybody told the Chic-Fil-A goons that there’s a guy in tights mincing about in McDonalds? 

  5. “Managers called the police…”

    Seems the only law broken here would be trespassing, and that would only be true if the management asked him to leave… which I assume they did.

    I will never understand how employees of a corporate held business feel that they must protect the interest of the company. You’d have to pay me a hell of a lot more than a McDonald’s manager makes to actually give even one shit about the franchise owners or corporate heads. I’m certain the corporation heads could care less about the welfare of their employees… why should the reverse be true?

    They should have let him hand out the burgers… had a laugh along with everyone else.

    1. I like how she asks him if what he was doing was legal before she says she called the cops and said she didn’t think he had the “right” to do what he did. 

      Pretty sure there wasn’t a sign that said:

      No shirts
      No shoes
      No service*
      * Additionally, entering these premises adorned in competing fast food mascot outfits is forbidden by law.

      1. But to whom did he cede that power? The Dairy Queen? The Duchess? King Dunkin’? One of his royal Cousins, perhaps?

          1. I hear the Colonel’s realm is challenged by a mysterious warrior-sailor with superhuman strength. I heard that once this fearsome warrior took out ten men by rolling up in a ball and knocking them down like bowling pins.

  6. Personally, at first I was shocked and OUTRAGED that there was a MacDonalds in Rome, and that anyone there would have even a clue what Burger King was… Ther I realised it wasn’t Rome, Italy.

      1. At least Rome is a fair-sized, largely modern city. The Italian McDonald’s location that really bummed me out was the one in Venice. It was like going to Giza and finding a Taco Bell amongst the pyramids.

          1. Fucking French. They’ll let McDonald’s into the Louvre but they won’t make Breton an official language. So much for their vaunted preservation of cultural patrimony.

      2. I’ve been to that very one, it’s right in the middle of the touristy area by Trevi Fountain.  I just needed to use the bathroom though, haha. 

  7. This is just irresponsible teaching kids to expect things for free. They will grow up as part of the 47% Obama/Democrat voters. There must be a law against it. Buying votes undermines the essence of Western democracy.
