Buns and Guns!!

Reuters wrote:BEIRUT (Reuters) - At "Buns and Guns" you can order a "Kalashnikov" sandwich from a bullet-shaped menu, prepared by chefs in military fatigues with the roar of explosions as background music.

This new fast food restaurant in Beirut's southern suburbs, where the Hezbollah movement holds sway, was the brainchild of co-owner Ali Hammoud. He said the war theme was a novel concept that had nothing to do with Lebanon's bloody recent history.

"It's just an idea I had, nothing more, nothing less. I could have put toys in place of the sandbags and teddy bears instead of guns. But it was just an idea," Hammoud told Reuters.

.........

"First time I came here, I thought it was a weapons shop. When I looked at the names of the dishes, I still thought so. I only realized it was a restaurant when I went inside," said 15-year-old Hussein al-Hajj Ali.

To each his own I suppose. Personally, I don't think I'd appreciate the sounds of war while I'm trying to enjoy a meal. Similar to my preference of eating in the kitchen and not the bathroom.

I know my bathroom can sound like a war zone some times.

I have to agree with ORS. The decor/setup could be cool especially if combined with images from classic western/war movies. You could do a really cool theme, but the explosions, etc. would be too far for me probably.
