Dairy King

In English, we have the idiom "two heads are better than one", but in India five heads are apparently even better. At least that's the case for the Hindu white elephant, Airavata, depicted in the picture on this taxi's dashboard. In Thailand, we have a similar deity named Erawan. But the Thai version usually only has three heads. With so many hungry mouths to feed, it's a good thing there are so many vanilla ice cream cones encircling him.
