In Cologne, the Erdogan Burger Makes a Hit

Turkish strongman Recep Tayyip Erdogan drew hoots in Europe when he threatened to prosecute a German satirist who came out with a lewd poem implying that he (Erdogan) had sex with goats. Now a restaurant in Cologne has been forced to close his doors temporarily after receiving threats. And what has gotten their goat? It's the restaurant's wildly popular new burger with goat cheese-called the Erdogan burger.


I usually make it a practice not to bother with hamburgers when in Europe. They just don't know how to do it. But if I ever find myself in Cologne again, I must seek this place out.

*Update: BBC reports that the restaurant is set to reopen after three days and will continue to sell the tasty Erdogan burger.

Prosecute this, Erdogan.
