Drop and Give Me 10 Situps 

Seriously... that's what they're doing in India to people caught watching porn:

Indian police forced around 200 people caught watching pornography to do sit-ups in public to shame them and keep them away from theaters that illegally screen smutty movies.

The Hindustan Times reported on Monday that police stopped the screening of a pornographic movie at a cinema in Balasore district in the eastern state of Orissa and made audience members - some as young as 17 - do 10 sit-ups each at a public square, watched by onlookers.

The police made the all-male group vow not to watch pornography again. To make matters worse for the embarrassed teenagers who were caught, police called their parents to watch them doing sit-ups.

Public health officials in the United States are investigating the Indian laws as a possible way to solve the nation's obesity epidemic.
