Preparation of traditional Indian chips

Ericsson and Indian cellular network operator, Idea Cellular, have built four cellular base stations powered by generators running off 'biodiesel', fuel locally produced from old cooking oil from chip shops.

All four base stations are in the state of Maharashtra and are greenfield sites in areas with unreliable mains power supply. Their introduction follow the initial feasibility assessment of forcing one million Indians to eat fried chips three times a day for a week.

"I am so being excited, I almost peed in my panties." said Taj Mahal Ganges, Minister for Used Chip Shop Oil, Sacred Cow Dung and Sweet Meats. Ganges went on to say that now -- chip shops would have a chance to change their oil more than every two years. "And NO more sodding soggy chips," he said with a smile.

"As Indians, our greatest wish is to get everyone to eat fried chips - a chip shop on every corner -- a mobile phone in every hand." Minister Ganges said.

Asked if millions of mobile phones ringing in the streets would cause hearing problems for the people, the Minister said, "Oh no, they will all have the same Hindi prayer ring tone..."
