So long as the savage who has been in charge of Wendy's Twitter remains intact, I'm sure they'll be fine.

Reading seems appropriate. I sorta feel like Reading is the Wendy's of Britain. Like, that makes sense to me. Bit crap, bit samey, bit better than the other places in the general area, not worth a special trip out but could do worse, acts like it's in sort of a liminal area between town/city vs fast-food/fast-casual. I can see it.

OI! DIS STEW IS shiat INNIT YA farkIN POOFER coont!

The drunken chad hurled the chili at the cashier and proceeded to jump behind the checkout counter, bashing the frostee machine with a cricket paddle until two women with bad teeth and scantily clad in leather tube tops and enormous heals twerked on the table tops and attempted to pry him away.

Powerless to stop them, the constables attempted in vein to blind them with their ridiculously reflective blue and neon green windbreakers and breathless, exhausted arguments for the bloke to come to his bloody senses.

The Saturday after that first fateful Friday night, Wendy's corporate decided that their experiment to reintroduce the company's franchises in the old world was a dismal failure, and the people of England would never see a square hamburger again.

My only Wendy's story worth telling is the time a friend and I ordered triple cheeseburgers and his wrapped burger was significantly larger than mine. We heard a voice from the kitchen -> "I think I used chicken instead of beef."

You think? You did.

My friend shrugged and ate it.

Triple chicken sandwich sounds more awesome, TBH.

The bad experience I had was that one time I ordered a Baconators and it came out with no bacon.

IT'S LITERALLY THE ONLY THING THAT MAKES THIS BURGER A THING.

/I never take stuff back, but I did for that
//Then I got, like, a half-pound of bacon on it and couldn't taste anything else
///which was acceptable
//I didn't return to that location

No foreign burger bar will ever be able to compete with Wimpy.

Interesting that TFA uses the old logo instead of the new one that was adopted 2? 3? years ago.

Since we're sharing Wendy's stories here's my only one.  I remember hanging out with friends and a friend came back from Wendy's and excitedly announced "Hey did you know you can just ask for how ever many burger patties you want on your burger and they'll put it on".  I think he went with 5.  I don't know if they still do this.

If Wendy is now in the UK, then perhaps Peter Pan can be there, too.

Is the headline saying that after 20 years, Wendy's and its square burger patties will return to England?

I still remember the first time I ever went to a Wendy's.  It was fairly new to the area and near a Mall in the suburbs.

Anyway, the thing that I remember is the burger.  It was perfect, so hot and greasy and good.  Unbelievable.  They are still good, but not like that one.

Honestly, they were better 20 years ago. At some point in the last 7-10 years they've changed thier iconic burger. It's thicker now, same weight, just less surface area. It's a shame, I used to really like them, Fresh not frozen patties, particularly since it was before 5 Guys got big and I've never lived within driving distance of an In-n-out. Ah well.
//old enough to remember their salad and taco bar...THAT was a long time ago

I love Peter Pan jokes. They never get old.

I... good lord... I wish I had at least 7 more funnies I could give.

Don't want any "square" burgers.  Just give me the "hep" ones, Daddi-o.

The Super Bar. Salad, taco, and pasta bar. For something like $3. Bring that back at twice the price, coronavirus be damned.
