It didn't happen in 1993. It also didn't happen in 2007. But, as the saying goes, the third time's the charm. In the fall of 2019, a marketing ploy gone awry awoke something within the people of Earth. People began displaying powers related to the food that they've consumed. It was quickly discovered that neither nourishing, home-cooked meals nor meals from traditional \sit-down" restaurants granted this power. It had to be the cheapest of the cheap, the lowest common denominator. Perhaps this was all a big joke played on us by those who control our simulation. Or perhaps the sheer quantity of food and brand recognition that those locations associate themselves with tapped into some form of power heretofore undiscovered. Whichever the case may be, the power is here now and we have to deal with it.
The restaurants quickly tried to take advantage of the situation. After several bloody and saucy skirmishes, they collectively decided that working together was the way forward.
