#1 .com, they don't deliver - you'll have to go there. You're also required to spend 24 hours on guard duty around the perimeter before being 'privileged' to place an order.

Makes for a damned expensive cheeseburger!

#2 But if ya gotta do the guard duty gig anyway, well then, it's a bonus, right??!!?!!

"its sales have reached the top 10 among all Burger King franchises on Earth"
This indicates that walking through fire on top of any other onerous duties hasn't deterred customers. ;-)

Mebbe, if they had the cajones, putting a Starbucks, BK, McD, KFC, Wendy's, Taco Bell, and a Jack in the Box in a heavy underground bunker with razor wire, concrete anti-vehicle gauntlet, and the world's greatest ventilation system (to get rid of the deep fat fryer output) in downtown Baghdad would prolly set new records for sales. I picture having a dummy version at ground level as an idjit-magnet. If we could figure out how to get the people in & out without them getting shot by the Ba'athists who used to have the Baba Habas franchise, we'd boost our retirement funds by about 1000000x. ;^)

#4 I wondered if anyone would notice. First thing I did after getting to Thailand was to go to BK and order exactly that meal.
