Nashville, TN-Setting an unusual precedent, Vanderbilt Children's Hospital was purchased today by the McDonald's Corporation. Ronald McDonald himself was present at the press conference.
"This is sure to be only the beginning of a new age of competition between the burger giants," Chief of Staff Kevin Churchwell remarked. "Burger King put in a decent bid but McDonald's just had more to offer. I like the Whopper better than the Big Mac but McDonald's fries are better. That's important to me and it's important to my patients."
Cody Carpenter, third year resident at the Children's Hospital, is excited about the transition. "There are going to be some bumps in the road, especially with the new drive through emergency department, but this is what's best for the children. And I get free Happy Meals."
