Eggs Baader-Meinhof - Your waiter is kidnapped, held to ransom and shot, so you never actually get your meal.
Eggs George Bush - By the time you've filled in all the booking forms, and negotiated the security checks and the arrogant, pushy staff on the restaurant's door, you've lost your appetite and probably also the will to live.
Eggs Dave Cameron - You get free-range eggs served up by waiters in hoodies.
Eggs Jacques Chirac - The posh French restaurant collects a massive subsidy from the European Union and the owner, an elected official of the state, is claiming the entire food bill for the restaurant on his official expenses as 'household expenses'.

Eggs Gordon Brown - The restaurant's computer booking system doesn't work and if you do manage to get past the means-tests, the portions are tiny, badly prepared, inedible, indigestible and vastly overpriced, and there's a huge stealth service charge added to every bill.
Eggs CIA - The service is good, the food is mass-produced and hey, if one or two customers get killed by friendly fire once in a while, what the hell?

Eggs Karl Marx - You are arrested for exploiting the masses and sent to Siberia before your meal arrives.
Eggs MI-5 - You get average service and an average meal, but at least you do get to eat, even if the waiters look a bit foreign, because the owner works for the Russians and he went to school and/or university with the head of the Security Service.
Eggs Milosevich - If you're not a Serb, don't expect to make it out of the restaurant alive.
