Entrepreneur, Ali Bullo yesterday announced plans to open a kebab van at Mount Everest Base Camp. Ali Bullo, 36, originally from Turkey but currently residing in Hounslow unveiled his ambitious plan at a meeting of the British Mountaineering Association.
'It's a shame that this international congregation of brave men and women, who risk their lives in order to climb Mount Everest do so with nothing in their bellies other than reconstituted dried food.
'I plan to rectify that situation by providing delicious doner, chicken, and lamb shish with salad and a free drink at a competitive price.
'There will of course also be on sale a rich variety of pizzas, fried chicken portions, chips, and a full English breakfast menu.
'Unfortunately we will be unable to provide chip shop style fish because the shipping times mean that it will be a bit whiffy by the time we get it up there.'
Spider Mann, President of the BMA welcomed the proposal, saying that a substantial junk food meal would be most welcome in the harsh conditions, but warned that excessive littering could prove to be problematic, and not very popular with the Nepalese government, the Dali Lama, or Chris Bonnington.
Ali Bullo was greeted warmly by many members of the mountaineering fraternity.
More as we get it.
