Half a croissant, on a plate, with a sign in front of it saying '50c'

The phrase 'crumpled heap' comes to mind.

They issue red/yellow cards in soccer I think the very same principle can be incorporated into many aspects of every day life.

Here's one example to save the barworker the hassle of having to explain why he/she is asking a patron to leave, or wanting a last drink when they're already intoxicated. Issue a yellow coaster/beermat with their drink which the doorman can clearly see and so can everyone else.Receive the red coaster and "that's your lot"!

I think this is in the right place.

       [Amos Kito] your link has me a tad confused or am i missing the point here? or should i say thrown off a twisty track.

       I imagine that most drunken barflys would accept a card system better than a word from the landlord. Everyone knows that refs don't change their mind.

       Yep, random button is cool. If farmer John was, is still here he'd turn this into a bar sprung drinking driven coaster clock.   

       "Ta."
