Do fries come with that sheik?

In these days of free trade and globalization it's important to know your market. This mural, spotted on a brick wall in Meknes, appears to depict a horde of Moorish freedom-fighters, presumably riding northwards on their fine Arabian stallions to recapture Spain.

However, taking the longer view, this in fact turns out to be just another advertisement, in the form of a romantic representation of you, the contemporary burger purchaser, in your car, pulling up to the drive-through at this Moroccan outpost of the Golden Arches.

Make mine a lambburger, and Supersize it!
