Big Mac and Whopper, together at last?
Burger King and McDonald's have been at each other's throats for years, but now, in 2015, there's an olive branch. Burger King has decided that they want to make peace with Maccies for one day only.
They want to "settle the beef" by combining their flagship burgers – the Whopper and the Big Mac – into the McWhopper.
This burger would be flogged at pop-up shops in Atlanta, which is the midway point between the headquaters of the two companies (which are Chicago and Miami if you must know).
Burger King made the offer via full-page adverts in The New York Times and The Chicago Tribune, and the want this to happen on the 21st September - the UN International Day of Peace. All proceeds to go to charity, natch. That said, customers won't be asked to cough-up money, rather, they'll be asked to sign one of the mats you get on the tray, making a peace declaration with someone.
The peace will even go down to the staff uniforms and takeaway bags.
In a proposal to McDonald's, Burger King said: "All these ingredients come together to build the burger some said would never happen. Some say the same thing about world peace."
"Let's prove them wrong on Peace Day. Everything in our proposal is up for discussion, from the name right through to the packaging. The only thing we can't change is the date, so let's talk soon."
