This guy has found a way to use current events to sell a sandwich:

A fast-food restaurant in Beirut's war-torn southern suburb has hit upon an explosive way to attract customers.

Buns and Guns is made out to look like a military post and diners eat to the sound of gunfire instead of muzak.

Owner Yousef Ibrahim presents rebranded Lebanese favourites like the "rocket-propelled grenade" (chicken on a skewer) and "terrorist bread".

"They accuse us of terrorism, so let's serve terrorist bread, why not?" Mr Ibrahim told Hezbollah's al-Manar TV.

Other dishes include the Kalashnikov, Dragunov, Viper, B52, while realistic-looking weapons and ammunition decorate the counters, and camouflage netting hangs from the ceiling.

Haha.. This is Sooo cool..

Totally in character for the guys over there..
Taking all the cr*p they live with day in day out with as much humour as they can.

I'll try and get an independent opinion of the food at Buns n Guns.

“My goal was to make people laugh before they ask me why weapons. The important thing is that they laugh,” Mr Ibrahim said
