A Burger King in Queens, New York is using Halloween as an excuse to deliver a prank of epic proportions. Donning the classic sheet-with-two-holes-cut-out look, the fast food franchise has dressed up its building as the ghost McDonald’s, Adweek reports.

The time spent draping the restaurant in ghostly garb was well worth the effort: As you can see from the video below, the final product is hard to miss. Burger King added an extra blow to their rival with a sign that reads: "Booooooo! Just kidding, we still flame grill our burgers. Happy Halloween."

McDonald’s has been trying to distance themselves from anything spooky this Halloween, so we’ll have to wait and see if they respond with a prank of their own.

After a bit of controversy over its way of aggregating news feeds and some questionable content censoring policies, it’s nice to have Facebook roll out a feature everyone can agree on: allowing you to order food without leaving the social media site.

According to a press release, Facebook says that the company decided to begin offering food delivery options after realizing that many of its users come to the social media hub to rate and discuss local eateries. Rather than hop from Facebook to the restaurant or a delivery service, you’ll be able to stay within the app and select from a menu of food choices. Just click “Order Food” from the Explore menu on a desktop interface or under the “More” option on Android or iOS devices. There, you’ll be presented with options that will accept takeout or delivery orders, as well as businesses participating with services like Delivery.com or EatStreet.

If you need to sign up and create an account with Delivery.com or Jimmy John’s, for example, you can do that without leaving Facebook. The feature is expected to be available nationally, effective immediately.
