Brazilian Burgers, anyone?

Brazil is famous for it's meat, but usually we do not think about hamburgers...

Burger King is being flipped, again (no pun intended) and this time Bain, TPG and Goldman are flipping to the Brazilian funded 3G Capital for $3.3bn. 3G is owned by Jorge Paulo Lemann, the richest man in Brazil, who made his money with Banco Garantia and InBev... oh yeah, did you know that Budweiser Beer (the horrible American stuff, not the good Czech) is also Brazilian?

I got the story off BBC, but it should be in most places in the news.
