However, a recent tussle had the burger chain on the receiving end of clap back. One tweeter inquired who would win a battle between the Oakland Athletics and Wendy's on Twitter. The A's offered a little wordplay, suggesting it'd "eat @Wendys for lunch." Wendy's went for a burn of its own, but the whole thing backfired beautifully.

The A's won that round with a self-deprecating joke that took down the reigning Twitter pith champs. Wendy's obviously felt the heat because it tried to turn the tables, but the A's account brought its... uh... A game.
The whole thing was undoubtedly in good fun. And it must feel nice for the A's to get a "W" somewhere, with things looking awfully bleak in the West Division's basement.
