I Knew It!


At last the London Police are taking action against one of the major perils of metropolitan life. Yes, the Weapon of Mass Destruction, the kebab:

Three Turkish kebab shop workers were among nine people arrested yesterday in the latest armed police raids connected with the terrorist attacks on the Underground.

The men, aged between 20 and 45, were taken away for questioning from a late-night hamburger and kebab bar in Tooting Broadway, south London, in the early hours.

Go get’em boys!

About time too! The 'humble' kebab is clearly designed to give us fat bellies, bad breath and loose bowels. 'Food of peace', my hat!

You can't be too careful!
These Turkish Kebab workers can be the regarded as the frontline of the secret gastronomic was being waged agianst our traditional standards of greasy, uninspiring food! Their slogan, soon to be revealed, is simple; "why stick to British stodge, when you can be liberated by Turkish Kebab Delight?"

p.s. what's the story with the rather weird URL which appears at the top of your post?

I think Tim's linked to a picture of a doner kebab on a website that doesn't allow remote image linking.

Tim adds: That better?

I thought no proper British hangover was complete without some late night kebab-induced food poisoning. Where's your sense of tradition?

British food poisoning---yes!

Foreign rubbish----------No!

Worstall, you rotter. It's only 10:15 in the morning and, having seen that picture, I am gagging for a large doner with lashings of chili sauce. You can't get 'em in Costa Rica (there's a Greek place nearby that does a mean souvlaki in pitta bread, but it's not quite the same). Plenty of Bubbles round these parts; not so many William Shatners.
