Quelle Tragédie! McDonalds to Open at France's Louvre Museum

Ah, McDonald's: Those golden arches are the ubiquitous symbol of cheap, convenient American grub. Or perhaps the universal symbol for high-fructose corn syrup? And with the U.S. market saturated (fun fact: the furthest you can get from a Mickey Dee's in this country is 107 miles), their fast-food empire has spread overseas, becoming a reliable shorthand for the ever-creeping tentacles of globalized consumerism. Case in point: McDonald's has just announced that they've cracked a market that was previously thought to be nigh-unassailable: the Louvre museum in Paris.
