Octopus cannon vs. Fast Food: Good Eats

Upset over the opening of a McDonald's restaurant, residents of Sete, France (a beautiful place, btw) protested :
They "catapulted fresh octopi -- a local delicacy, known here as the 'pouffre' -- towards the town's first McDonalds, which had been set to open on Saturday.

The crowd held up slogans slamming junk food, dubbed 'malbouffe' in French, as well as work conditions in the fast-food industry.

Driving home their point, the protestors were serving up traditional Setois dishes -- one of which is the tielle, a fragrant octopus, tomato and onion pie prized by locals and tourists alike.

Hmm ... flying octopi and free Setois dishes? Sounds like a great show to me.
