Last year, one foolhardy McDonald’s stan learned this lesson the hard way.

And let’s not forget about the time that one (sleepy) McDonald’s social media intern accidentally posted an embarrassing Black Friday tweet …
Black Friday **** Need copy and link****— McDonald's (@McDonaldsCorp) November 24, 2017
… which Wendy’s then used to throw some shade.
When the tweets are as broken as the ice cream machine. https://t.co/esdndK1iFm— Wendy's (@Wendys) November 24, 2017
Well, the deceptively sweet-looking fast food company is back at it again, continuing their vicious McDonald’s beef (pun absolutely intended).
One Twitter user recently posted a photo of a Fisher-Price McDonald’s soft serve machine, circa 1988, telling McDonald’s, “Bet this works better than your ice cream machine.”
Wendy’s took the ball and ran with it, responding with, “Probably tastes better too.”

Damn. Hopefully McDonald’s can pour some of their malfunctioning ice cream on that festering burn.
Wendy’s isn’t always so brutal, though. Sometimes, the company can be downright sweet. Take, for example, the time that MoonPie’s Twitter decided to spit some not-so-subtle game at Wendy’s:
Thanks MoonPie! You're such a snack!— Wendy's (@Wendys) January 24, 2018
The two brands then proceeded to engage in a Twitter love-fest the likes of which had never been seen before.
You are witty and fun, and all your tweets bring a little sweet into our lives!— Wendy's (@Wendys) January 24, 2018
Seriously, guys. Get a damn room.
We love that you adventured to space just to bring the people of Earth the Moon's greatest snack. You're an adventurer with a heart of marshmallow!— Wendy's (@Wendys) January 24, 2018
Wendy’s may be a bit salty on the outside, but don’t ever forget that they also have a warm, gooey center.
And no, I cannot talk about this subject without reverting to fast food puns. Thank you for asking.
