Turned on the telly this morning & guess what the BBC was reporting on? Yup, it was how a small Malaysian Indian restaurant managed to beat the Mighty McD's in a landmark court case over trademark infringement.
Am sorry. Me is biased & thinks McD's is the fooking epitome of evil. Never saw why anyone would proclaim cravings fer soggy fooking fries & mystery meat burgers. Not even during me teen years did me fall fer its advertising shtick.
And fer fook's sake, in what way was this lil banana leaf restaurant threatening yer business. Different food, different clientele & different set ups. With the court ruling in favour of McCurry, the owners say they have new investors (lured no doubt by the free publicity) who want to set up an international chain of McCurries. Go fer it!!!
Everyone loves the underdog, especially one who makes good mutton paratel.
