I have sheep, goat or lamb, you choose.

Soldiers deployed to remote locations in Afghanistan have been using Kebabistan for their charcoal cooked meals for the past month.

The kebab vans owner, an Afghani, whose name is unpronounceable so is called Stan for short, is a local entrepreneur and serves entrées of paneer from his old beaten up van, which he Christened Kebabistan, for some unknown reason.

The troops love it and keep lining up for dinner every evening, according to one peckish private "I think it's wonderful, actually. Stan serves a wide variety of food, from minced lamb in a pita with salad, to slices of goat kebab in a bread pocket which has the option of leafy type vegetation if you want." Said Private Hedge.

Another salivating soldier commented "I think it's healthy, you have choices. Some of the guys complain about getting bored with it, but there is always plenty for me to eat. I can always have a salad with some sheep meat in a naan wrap, that kind of stuff"

Stan's kebab emporium on wheels has become such a firm favourite with the lads that they have sectioned a special detail, who take it in turns to guard the van when they come under enemy fire, which has unfortunately increased in the last four weeks.

"Its weird" said the platoon's commander, "the enemy seems to know where we are all the time of late and we just can't figure it out".

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
