Putin banned from Taco restaurants - that'll show him...
Mighty Taco, a fast-food chain of Mexican restaurants, has banned the Russian president from its branches until he stops “ picking on people” – referring to his seizure of Crimea from Ukraine.
The company, which has 23 eateries in western New York, posted a message on its Facebook page earlier this week, forbidding the politician from entering any of their locations - “even the one in Delaware and Hertel!” “Mr Putin you won’t be ordering a Mighty Taco around here any time soon! “No one likes a bully, so stop picking on people and maybe you will be welcomed back to Mighty Taco.”
It is not known whether or not Putin likes Mexican food. McDonald's closed its restaurants in Crimea this week.
You really couldn't make it up. Can you imagine history books in the future: "Russia's advance on the West was stopped by immediate action from the US - they were banned from McDonalds and Taco Bell..."
Life is like an onion: you peel it off one layer at a time, and sometimes you weep.
