After winning the Oscar for Best
Picture Director and lumbering his way through an acceptance speech — redeemed by words from two non-English languages — Ang Lee hit the streets of LA and found himself in that coziest, most comforting of havens for the delirious, the drunk, the endorphin-jacked, or merely the hungry: In-N-Out.
Spotted by Vanity Fair publisher Edward Menicheschi, who snapped a pic and tweeted it out, this photo has gone viral and now found its way here, where we hope In-N-Out Burger quickly capitalizes on this remarkable windfall of publicity to open a chain in China. We could use a double-double right about now.

Best Director, not best picture. That was Argo.
Gah, of course. Fixed.
This reminds me of the story of the ill-fated fake In-N-Out in Shanghai.
