McDonald’s Calls Police On Man Dressed Up As The Burger King
CBS Atlanta ^ | 9/21/2012

Posted on 09/21/2012 10:31:02 AM PDT by markomalley

Police were called to a local McDonald’s in relation to a disturbance caused by a man dressed as the Burger King.

In a police report provided to the Rome News-Tribune, officers indicated that they were summoned to the fast-food restaurant around 1 p.m. on Monday, in response to a call about a suspicious person on the premises.

The person was allegedly resplendent in full Burger King regalia.

Police stated that, upon his arrival, the Burger King mascot reportedly began to hand out free hamburgers to customers, and stopped to take pictures with several children.

Officers were additionally told that one child ran away from the man in fear, the paper learned.

The McDonald’s manager told authorities she had approached the unidentified man before calling police. When asked what he was doing, the man allegedly told the manager he was collecting money for charity.

The manager noted to police that at no time did the man collect money while inside the McDonald’s.

Before leaving in his white Acura, the man removed his mask in view of the manager, the paper learned. She then described him as a white, middle-aged man with dark hair, according to the report.

McDonald’s missed a great opportunity. They should have taken pix and touted them with the words, “Even Burger King eats at McDonald’s.”

Did the police ask the king to leave? The story doesn’t say. From what it did say, the Burger King did nothing wrong.

Makes you wonder what happened to the Burger Chef doesn’t it?

Word on the street is that the Chef was the special sauce.

The McDonald’s was going to respond by sending someone to Burger King in a Ronald McDonald suit, but when they called Harvey’s Singing Telegram Service to order a big yellow clown, Harvey told them :

“Obama is busy and can’t come to the phone right now.”

Five Guys is the best burger place around, IMO. Their fries are fried in peanut oil and they are HEAVENLY!
