Yeah, it’s Mondayyyyy! My favorite day of the week except every other day except Tuesdayyyy. Moving on from that sarcasm, I was walking to the library the other day(not to read, but because they have free internet there), and a lightbulb hit me over the head. Not an idea, but an actual lightbulb. It kind of hurt because it was still hot from being removed from its socket. Not the kind of hurt that will make you go to the hospital, but the kind of hurt that will stick with you like hot pizza on the roof of your mouth.
Speaking of the roof of your mouth, what is it really covering? Your tongue? Seems like if you are considered a roof, you should provide a little more coverage. The roof of my house covers like three or four bedrooms, a couple of bathrooms, a living room, dining room and a kitchen. At least the roof is covering something besides a tongue. The only time I even remember I have a roof on my mouth is when it is getting burned by pizza. Coming back to my point, I actually did have an idea.
Since I write about rivalries a lot (or at least I want to, but sometimes don’t because it seems overused) I decided that I’m going to feature a Bitter Rivalry of the Week, every single week (to assure that it is overused). I’m going to feature everything from real life rivalries that people know and care about to little known or maybe previously unknown rivalries that you probably never even thought of until I actually pointed them out. So get ready for some intense bitter rivalries and some that you won’t care at all about. Feel free to comment on who you think the winner was in the comments.
This week’s bitter rivalry is Burger King vs. McDonald’s. As you may know, last week Burger King took out an ad in the paper calling upon McDonald’s to put their petty rivalry aside and combine Burger’s for a day (A Whopper and the Big Mac combo called the McWhopper) in the spirit of National Peace Day and sell the Burger’s for charity.
At first, it seemed Burger King had the upper hand, because what would McDonald’s do? Refuse to help? Look bad by not combing for National Peace Day? But McDonald’s responded by saying “our two brands could do something bigger to make a difference” and “between us there is simply a friendly business competition and certainly not the unequaled circumstances of the real pain and suffering of war.”
So, who wins the Bitter Battle of Burgers? Is it Burger King’s sarcastic but pretty cool idea to come together for a day and do something good together? Or McDonald’s crackback by using a more serious, “we could do something better” and “we’re just friendly business competition” thing?
Who has the better burgers? The best fries? The best drive thru? The best playland? Who has the creepiest mascot?
Who has the best website? Type in http://www.bitter.com to find out who stole part of my soul.
Let me know who you think wins this rivalry.
