Mrs. Curious Capitalist and I were driving through Leesburg, Va., Saturday in search of cookies when we came across this curious sight: A Turkish döner kebab van, apparently by way of Germany, doing business in exurban Virginia.

Anyway, Mrs. CC took this lovely photo of said van, and I was sure I could come up with something Tom Friedmany to say about it and globalization: The world is flat, like a slice of döner. Or maybe it’s sorta conelike, like döner still on the spit. Or maybe it’s made up of lots of pressed-together meat … Awww, I give up.
