From Fred:

And our new 18” x 30” vinyl-backed natural coir Finish Line
doormat is there to welcome you home.

Buns and Guns Restaurant

From haha.nu:
The menu: Grenade and Kalashnikov (burger and fries), Magnum sandwiches (chicken) and lots of other guerilla weaponary like RPGs, M16s and tactical combos. And guess where is this? In the heart of the Hizbolah-controlled section of Beirut. So, would you have a fast food there?
Oh Geez.
