As We See It

Chili doughnuts? In ode to the failed McWhopper, we dreamed up our own fast-food mashups

Burrito Blizzard: Yeah, we might’ve taken it too far.

To honor International Peace Day, Burger King recently offered McDonald’s the chance to collaborate on the “McWhopper”—a well-meaning but unholy olive branch that would mate the warring chains’ signatures, the charbroiled Whopper and the Big Mac, a burger that receives its “secret sauce” via “sauce gun.” McDonald’s declined the offer on Twitter with an unimpressed, “Let’s do something to make a real difference.” Nevertheless, the bad idea for a good cause inspired the Weekly staff to dream up our own, mostly abominable mashups.

Apologies in advance.
