    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.



    "You could say that the situation in the country made people pay attention," added Hammoud, sitting outside his restaurant, which has become popular with teenagers.



    Guns, bullets and pictures of other weapons decorate the interior. The slogan "A sandwich can kill you", with a picture of a gun superimposed on a burger, is displayed outside.



    Completing the war motif, sandbags surround the outdoor seating area. The menu features sandwiches and burgers with names such as "Terrorist meal" and "RPG", as well as "Kalashnikov".



    "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.

    Since it is Beirut, The sandbags are probably not for decoration and more of a necessity.

    OK, before the onslaught of naughty boy replies such as "there's a gun in that picture" harharhar. let me point out that she's got her finger on the trigger!!!! that's a no no.

    ok, now i will move aside so you boys can properly ogle.

    Do have to say I wouldn't mind a similar piece (pun intended) but maybe in purple - not pink.


    proceed... :celebrate

    So I guess I shouldn't follow that with a comment about liking to have her pull my trigger?

    I love shooting, and I love eating, but something about the lead and gunpowder smell of a range just kills my appetite. Maybe I'm just not into cancer.

    I would definitely eat at such a restaurant. Especially if they had a range attached.

    Yeah, I'd like a double cheeseburger, a large fry, and 200 rounds of 9mm please.
