According to ABC7, a prank caller told a Burger King in Coon Rapids, Minnesota that they were from the fire department and that the employees needed to break all the windows to release "pressure" before the building exploded.

As October's shadow loomed long on September, we knew Burger King would bring a black-bunned burger to celebrate the creepy season.

What we didn't know is that eating the thing would turn your poop a vibrant, verdant, lustrous green. Careful there, that link shows actual human waste.

Furthermore, we didn't know why. We only had to hold ourselves against the dark ignorance that blanketed us.

People had lots of speculation, from A-1 sauce to demonic leprechauns, but it was Gizmodo that ultimately revealed the truth.



But while the poop is indisputably green, the dye causing it might not be. The dyes that make the bun black are a combination of Yellow #6, Red #40, Caramel Color, and Blue #1. Blue #1 is also known as Brilliant Blue FCF. Brilliant Blue doesn't absorb well in the intestines, so it often comes out in the poop—it just doesn't come out blue. The internet is full of concerned parents talking about giving their kids a purple drink or smoothie (made with red and blue food coloring) only to change green diapers or find green stains on underwear. Brilliant blue is often combined with tartrazine, a yellow food dye, to make green dye. A site called The Poop Report claims that blue food dye (Blue #5 this time) combines with bile to make poop green, although bile by itself can turn poop green.

In the end, the green product of the black burger is probably the result of blue food coloring. The good news is that it's coming out of you because it's not getting absorbed into your body.



Now we can sleep soundly and try to eat stuff that's not cosmetically dyed to celebrate a time of year.

Burger King wants to "end the beef" between themselves and McDonald's (for just one day, at one special location) in honor of the International Day of Peace. Because, you know, nothing says peace like a frankenburger. Ah, capitalism. Here's their proposal:

In honor of Peace Day, September 21st, Burger King is inviting McDonald's to team up to create the McWhopper — a burger built for world peace. If they say yes, we’ll mark this ‘burger wars” ceasefire with a one day pop-up McWhopper shop in Atlanta on Peace Day, halfway between our two headquarters.


Would you eat a McWhopper in the name of peace?

Update: Looks like you won't have to eat one, because McDonald's has declined Burger King's offer with a Facebook post that can only be described as a sick burn:

You may have heard a McDonald's employee confirmed the existence of a McDonalds secret menu including items like the "Land, Sea, and Air" and the "McGangBang," but they aren't the only fast food place with epic secret food hacks. Check out these other secret menu items before your next trip to the drive-through.

When an Illinois couple had their wedding announcement printed in a local paper, the fast food giant was quick to hop on social media and find the real couple in question:



A half-dozen puns about the "whopper" of an event later, Burger King tracked down the couple and offered to pay for the entire wedding and provide gifts! You can see their ecstatic reaction from their interview here:



Meanwhile, every single McDonald in the nation is starting to feel like they've been stiffed, and our friend Wendy was unavailable for comment.
