Restaurants Selling Out of Shawarma Due to "The Avengers" Joke

Posted: May 12th, 2012 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Restaurants Selling Out of Shawarma Due to "The Avengers" JokeSubmit Comment
The massive success of "The Avengers" not only boosted the film and comic book industries, but it has also increased sales of a Middle-Eastern food known as Shawarma.

SPOILERS AHEAD:

In the movie, Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr) mentions that he wants to get Shawarma after a battle. Then after the credits, the entire superhero team is shown eating lunch, and their meal of choice is Shawarma.

TMZ spoke with several restaurants in the Los Angeles area, and it turns out that Shawarma sales have skyrocketed. A manager at Ro Ro's Chicken, a Lebanese restaurant, said that Shawarma sales jumped 80% in the days after the movie opened. And looking around, almost every major city is reporting that Shawarma is selling out in local eating establishments.

While not everyone is out there eating Shawarma, many are looking it up on Google. The company is reporting that searches for the dish have gone up drastically as well.

I just assumed they were all eating some regularly unhealthy sloppily done sandwiches or subs like everyone else does.

I didn't even hear that word come up in the movie. Now that I have, I still don't give a firetruck.

Who said you can lead a horse to water but you can't make them drink?

"Durka Durka food uh pass"

It's roasted animal meat. No different from eating one of those fat, ugly sh*tting things you see in fields throughout the United States.

@Mink: those kebab sh*tes are very well known to be the sh*ttiest food you can possibly find in the after hours, so, f*ck no, let them they own sh*t!

It's Amazing what can be sold just because it's on screen. Sheep people I tell you.

Shawarma is not a kebab. Ignorance and racism. I am disappoint.
minkowski writes:
on May 12th, 2012 at 3:33:16 PM

@Bullit: Dunno. I've never had it. Wiki says it's sheep, goat and other meats roasted over a spit for many hours, often served wrapped in a pita-like bread, so look, any roasted animal on some bread sounds good to me.

But I'm a natural carnivore.

Just a falafel pocket with roasted meat instead of the falafel. Everyone's looking it up because no one calls it shawarma. Better than any fast food out there.
minkowski writes:

A rat taking a diarrhetic dump in your mouth is probably better than fast food.
SuluNakamura writes:
on May 12th, 2012 at 10:38:05 PM

hahaha internet tough guys acting like their diet consists of nothing but healthy foods. Don't kid yourselves, we all know you eat the occasional diarrhea burgers. Also, good job talking sh*t on other cultures foods, implying anything you eat is any better. I'm looking at you, bando. Too bad not all of us are privileged to eat out of your toilet.

Avirex: That's because you're a child, and only watch movies based on visuals alone. You completely miss out on dialog cues, which set up story points, or in this case a joke.
