Do you want chips with that?

Now that polonium is on the tip of many British tongues these days, and as the number of places and people now contaminated with the stuff increases almost daily, the Brits, as they will often do, are taking it all in stride, even celebrating the recent addition to the vernacular. The Polonium Restuarant in Sheffield has been packed ever since word first broke that Russian spies were falling ill and or dead from doses of the radioactive material.
The owners of a restaurant in northern England are having their hands full these days, unexpectedly capitalizing on the death of former Russian spy Alexander Litvinenko.

The reason for the rising popularity of the establishment in Sheffield is in its name - "The Polonium Restaurant".

Ever since word broke that the former Russian spy was poisoned with radioactive polonium-210, the place has been fully packed.

The Polish owner say the place was not named after the radioactive stuff, but a Polish folk band he played in some 30 years ago.

The notorious name, however, is paying off for the restaurant with business up as much as 30 %.
