Earlier this week the International Olympic Committee decided to ban Russia from the 2018 Winter Olympics in South Korea.  This is sad news for a variety of reasons.

Anyway, the above is the storefront of an actual restaurant in current day America.  That’s right, this restaurant, which goes by the name of “Conflict Kitchen,” only serves the food of enemies of America.  Every couple of months they change the menu to … Continued
