When Burger King publicly reached out to McDonald's Wednesday with a Peace Day proposal, the Golden Arches quickly rebuffed the idea. That hasn't stopped people from talking about it, and it has led to other restaurant chains trying to figure out ways to play with BK.

Krystal, an Atlanta-area chain that serves square burgers, said it jumped into the social media conversation less than an hour after McDonald's replied to Burger King.

The plan from Krystal, developed by agency 22squared, included an open letter to Burger King that it posted on Twitter and Facebook. "We propose working together to create the first tiny square Whopper. (We're partial to the Kropper, the Whystal, or the Tiny King.)," the chain wrote in the letter.

A day later, Denny's tweeted out another suggestion:

At this point, BK has not publicly acknowledged either of those chains' ideas.

The Denny's tweet has already been favorited more than 1,500 times. Krystal, which got its start in Chattanooga, Tenn. in 1932, has restaurants in 11 states today, and is lesser known. Krystal's BK tweet had only 24 favorites by Friday morning.
