In a social media landscape where no one is safe from their brand streaks and Twitter accounts, Wendy’s has taken it a step further by dedicating an entire day to making fun of other companies.

The fast-food chain, dubbed “National Roast Day,” takes to Twitter once a year to deliver a digital smackdown (using the hashtag #NationalRoastDay, of course).

While some companies got it more brutally than others, many joined in the fun and actually ordered a roast.

Perhaps in a more literal sense of the holiday, Aflac Insurance, famous for its duck mascot, asked the fast food chain to roast it to which Wendy’s responded with a photo of a roasted duck.

A few alcoholic Twitter accounts have taken aim at wanting to roast, including Anheuser-BuschThe main account (Wendys wrote “You ain’t even from the best town in Missouri lol”), Bush beer Just what Wendy said

“You are what parents give their children to stop them drinking” and Mike’s Hard Lemonade that reacted savagely “still tastes the worst yellow liquid.”

The chain has also mocked other food brands such as Yoplait (“Dear ladies who laugh in your yogurt commercials, blink twice if you need help”), Oreo (“When you add milk makes it taste better, you’re doing it wrong”) and Velvet Cheese sliced ​​with Burn “We’re closer to being the first restaurant on Mars than we are to being cheese.”

Of course, no holiday would be complete without roasting other food chains, and Wendy certainly didn’t hold back when it came to Jack in the Box — so much so that she managed to send out longtime rival McDonald’s tweets.

“I’m meatless try me,” the Jack in the Box Twitter account said.

“Somehow not the worst fast food restaurant based on a clown,” Wendy replied.

Someone will definitely not like it!

Of course, this isn’t the first time Wendy has reached out to McDonald’s via social media.

Back in October, the McDonald’s Twitter account tweeted a question, asking “If you were the one running a McDonald’s account for a day, what would you tweet?”

Wendy’s quoted the tweet and said, “Where things must be frozen are frozen, things that must be frozen are broken,” referring to a recent report on the complex nature of McDonald’s ice cream machines and why they are always broken.

But hey, everything is fair in the love wars and junk food!

Wendy’s is up 10.86% year over year as of Friday afternoon.
