Burger King Goes Rogue and Dances at McDonald's (Video)

Imagine if you will, the plight of the Burger King. One minute you're fast food royalty, wearing a crown and a royal robe with an enormous grin permanently fixed to your plastic face...the next you've been downgraded from the 1 percent to the rest of us unemployed schmucks.

What's a mascot to do? Take Sara Palin's recent advice to Mitt Romney and "go rogue" ... at the nearest McDonald's.

The BK bad boy showed up in a McDonald's in Rome, Georgia,

where he danced around a bit, scared a few children, and gave away

According to the Rome News-Tribune, the King drove away in a white 2001 Acura. Oh, how the mighty have fallen.
