Oh man, you actually got the pic here.

Well, at least he is pretty clear on what he is going to do. And there is no point in writing 'Defaulters will be prosecuted' because that will probably take 30 to 40 years. Therefore it makes sense to crush and melt!!!

Apparently they have the same sign across all their outlets. Saw this outside their Bangalore restaurant as well.

I must say that this thread is really entertaining. But the problem is that if you browse more than 5 pages at a stretch, it will really overload your brain to the limits, trying to interpret what is written.
