194. Cheeseburgers at Checkpoint Charlie

Checkpoint Charlie, a somewhat important part of Berlin’s history, is today overshadowed by a giant McDonald’s. Even more offensive, is that it is on the Soviet side, just to make it really clear the capitalists won. Rather than be mortified at yet another historic and important place in the world becoming disappointingly over-commercialised (Checkpoint Curry was almost equally offensive), we thought we’d go one better and highlight the ludicrousness of the situation.

At least within McDonald’s someone had heard the phrase ‘Lest We Forget’ and put some token photos on the stairwell.
