Mr. Ronald McDonald, TEAR DOWN THIS WALL!
This country needs to make fast food bi-partisan, and Burger King is offering an olive branch to McDonald's to make that happen.
The idea to “squash the beef with beef” is simple. Its name is the “McWhopper,” a half-Big Mac/half-Whopper creation that may break the space-time continuum once erected.
Burger King is proposing to make the merger of meats on Peace One Day's Peace Day, set to take place September 21.
According to Peace One Day's website, Peace Day is “an annual day of global unity, a day of intercultural cooperation on a scale that humanity has never known.”
On that day, if a treaty is reached, a Burger King-McDonald's pop-up shop will be built in Atlanta, halfway between Burger King's Miami HQ and McDonald's Chicago home base, according to USA TODAY.
The store, packaging, burger and even employees working the shop will all be equally split between the two fast food giants.
After September 21, the shop will be taken down, and our nation's fast food chains can go back to hating each other.
BK is clearly hellbent on making this thing happen.
It recently called out Mickey D's top brass using a full page of ads in The New York Times and Chicago Tribune.

This is awesome! We all want this to happen! Write to your senators! Knock on doors! Start peti… Wait, McDonald's immediately shot down the idea? Eff.
Dear Burger King, Inspiration for a good cause... great idea. We love the intention but think our two brands could... Posted by McDonald's on Wednesday, August 26, 2015
Well, there goes that dream.
The only way to make this better is for Chipotle to merge efforts with Taco Bell for a day to make a Doritos Locos Burrito.
