All over Berlin and most of Germany, the most common fast food is Döner Kebab, which is what gets called Gyros in the US, except Gyros is Greek, and Döner Kebab are Turkish, and Halal.

As it happens there is a word in German, from the old Teutonic mythology: "Die DönnerGötter" -- The Gods of Thunder. It's the name of they Album by Rhys Chatham that contains "Guitar Trio."

So here's my great idea -- why isn't there a Döner shop in Berlin called "Die DönerGötter" -- The Gods of Döner?


One of the Gods of Döner.
