Krusty Burger Exterior

Earlier this week, some of you may have seen that longtime Simpsons writer Bill Oakley (as well as Futurama, and currently part of something called Port-land-ia?) went on a twitter crusade to save McDonalds from itself. He offered up menu options, and more importantly a new conceptual foundation to rebuild the fast food chain’s image and business upon.

If you want to read the whole rant, you can take this link over to Storify, or follow Bill Oakley on twitter.  Honestly, I think he’d just burned because he has to go to Burger King to get all the cool The Simpsons toys.
