A Brief History of the Bizarre Twitter Feud Between Panda Express & The Killers

Out of all the bizarre things that've happened on Twitter, a brief feud between rock band The Killers and fast food chain Panda Express is definitely one of the weirdest. It all started when the band accused Panda Express of stealing lyrics from their 2004 hit, "Smile Like You Mean It," to use in fortune cookies. The strange interaction ended quickly and with an unexpected twist: a donation of orange chicken to charity. Confused? Just take a look at the strange-yet-happy exchange.

Now that everything has been resolved amicably, we're stuck dreaming up collaborations between The Killers and the restaurant chain. Coming soon to a radio near you: "And I'm on my knees, looking for the answer: are we chicken, or are we denser?"
