Sambhar Mafia - Cooked To Kill!

Don't Say Cheez if you are in Britain

New Indian Express reports on the latest changes stipulated by the British Home Office:

Smiles are banned from British passport photographs from Monday following the introduction of new scanners that focus on biometrical recognition and require applicants to keep a straight face.

Under the new rules, potential travellers must produce "a neutral expression with your mouth closed", according to the instruction sheet from the Home Office, the Guardian reported.

The new measures are being introduced in a bid to fight terrorism.
The Sambhar Mafia crack team used it’s extensive networks and managed to find out that Tony Blair was the first one to change his passport photo as a result of this development. Take a look at the pics:
