The glowering eyes, the stiff pointed finger the quivering lips and the heavy words "Or else....". It is a threat to end all threats. The one that needs no more words. The possibilities are endless, yet every situation it is used in will have one outstanding winner.

Usage

{Mostly friendly neighbourhood side road cricket match, where Sriram, batsman and owner of bat has just been called out after hitting Anasuya aunty's house wall above the marked brick line. He was also called out 2 balls ago for a pitch-catch}
Sunny: Out! Out! Out! yay! That's out!
Sriram: GO MAN! That's not out ok!
Sunny: Eyii! Cheaterkok! Dont' lie! You're out! Everyone saw. Tell man Shashi you are on his team no, It was way over that line!
Sriram: No man, I'm batting. Or else....
(glowering eyes, quivering lips, pointed finger and other hand with bat stretched homewards)

Usage

Ranga: Wow! Your rubber is so nice.
Rita: It's not a rubber. It's called an eraser. Here you can have it if you like it so much.
Ranga: What! For me me only? Rita you are sooo nice.

If you see this written on a tire hanging from a tree or nailed to a pole, there is a good chance you already have nails in your tire and are looking for their services. This is the place to go where all vehicle tubes are invariably old and need to be replaced with either 200 Rs duplicate or 400 Rs Original ones. It costs extra for your friend to seat the puncher expert himself on his bike and bring him over to the crime scene.
These omnipresent signs can range from punter to punchure to the ridiculously rear (I swear it exists, I have seen it once!) puncture.

Usage

Dude! Yesterday only outside Tavern, I paid 200Rs and got it fixed. Now again I have to find a puncher shop.
