It’s May and you know what that means: It’s prom season! Get ready for a deluge of cutesy human interest stories about teenagers coming up with insanely clever ways to ask their friends (and/or witless celebrities) to a dance that we impose way too much cultural meaning on. (What ever happened to just slipping “circle yes or no” notes into lockers?)

But of all the viral prom-posals you’ll read about, we guarantee that none will top this one. Burger King just invited Wendy’s out! And the best news is, she said yes! Could this be the beginning of a newfound fast food empire? Or just a viral publicity stunt? Either way, we’re completely here for it!

Here’s how it all went down. The Burger King in Lynn, Mass. is just down the block from a Wendy’s, so naturally they posted this message on their public outdoor sign asking her out :

Wendy’s official Twitter account replied, “Ok, but don’t get handsy and we have to be home by 10.” We totally respect her boundaries. I mean someone has to be back in time to manage the late night Frosty orders.

Burger King updated their sign accordingly.

Aww, we think they make quite the couple. They’ll totally rule the school as prom king and queen. I mean they kind of have to. It’s right there in his name! HE ALREADY HAS A CROWN! You can’t beat that kind of competitive advantage.

Also in case you’re thinking of asking Ronald McDonald to prom, don’t even bother.  I already called dibs on that clown. Because my love affair with Egg McMuffins is one for the ages, so haters, back off!
