Culture clash à Orléans

OK this may be pushing the envelope of acceptable cultural integration.  Most Europeans probably have encountered a doner kebab at some point.  It's a Turkish dish served in a fast food restaurant which has (often in the front window) a large cylindrical hunk of meat roasting on a vertical spit (as demonstrated by the drawings in the window here).  The meat is usually veal, beef, or lamb.  It's sliced off in thin strips and put on a flat-bread like pita with a tasty sauce.  I love 'em.  Anyway, that's all well and good, but this restaurant has decided to merge the fast food concept into its name by borrowing from a certain well-known chain.  I could only groan when I first saw it.


  1. You're just upset that you didn't think of it first - ha! ha!

  2. The owner probably laughs when he looks at the sign. Or maybe his name is Mac.

  3. I'm sure the owner must be pretty pleased with himself...whatever his name. Anyway, I wonder if being associated with McDo's (as they call it here) is helpful to business or not.
