Maybe they can get away by simply tactfully not mentioning that  
they're being used as plates. They're oven tiles. Or whatever. It'll  
probably take two years for the health officials to figure out what's  
going on unless some idiot asks them flat-out, "Oh, by the way, is it  
okay if we do this?"

Adamantius, who had the job of warning his boss when such rules were  
being broken, not that that kept them from being broken
