McDonald's Propaganda

All things considered, perhaps McDonalds could have given it a little more thought before setting up shop along the Via di Propaganda in Rome, Italy. Ahem.

In fact, this is spitting distance from The Palazzo di Propaganda Fide (which in English means Palace of the Propagation of the Faith) For almost four hundred years it has housed the Congregation for the Evangelization of Peoples and now belongs to the Vatican City.  Ah, the blessed irony of these two global forces cheek by jowl.
