    Oh man, wish I could conquer White Castle, but I live in Washington state. Those restaurants are like vampires, they don’t cross the running water of the Mississippi.

    Now I want someone to adapt Othello as an opera with McDonaldland characters. Hamburglar as Iago, and so on.

    I want a chess set based on this. A Burger King, and a Dairy Queen, and a Burger Bishop, and White Castles… rooks? castles? Is a White Castle really a castle? /gongsunlong

    Burger King – King
    Dairy Queen – Queen (Blizzard?)
    Big Macs – Rooks
    Wendy’s Frosties – Bishops
    White Castle Burgers – Pawns

    Struggling with knights as it is difficult to associate the act of leaping with fast food. Maybe Nathan’s hot dog?

    the question is since when are they related, as Cat appears to have expanded his empire Hapsburg-style by marrying Girl off

    Alas, nobody has any love for the southern cousins of White Castle, the Krystalburger.

    We could totally do a fast food chess set based on regional fast food places… Krystal pawns on one side, white castle pawns on the other…

    She will have to drive an army auxillary truck in the War Against Wienerwald. Her subjects will love it, such loyalty!

    Must live in the wrong state, the local White Castle is an adult toy shop. Steely Dan, anyone? The one from the novel, not the band…

    “My nobles are rich with floral displays.” I have a feeling I’m going to be saying that a lot in the coming months.
