Currying Favour

One was previous aware of the restaurant called Handi Ghandi and its caricature of Mahatma Gandhi and had pondered the exact reason why, in this whinge-laden world, no one had yet complained and caused the place to change its cheekily amusing name and logo.

One suspected it was because Gandhi was a Hindu and perhaps they could take a joke. If the restaurant had been Allah's All You Can Eat with menu items such as Koran Korma, the place would have been shut down long ago.

Unfortunately, the media can't take a joke either and contacted the great grandson of Gandhi to stir up a story.

The restaurant has changed its logo but one suspects that won't be enough in the long run.
