>"Useless Without Pictures" Department

27 Nov

>From the Land Of No Chewing Gum:
“The skimpy trunks sported by Singapore’s men’s water polo team at the Asian Games are causing red faces back home…. The trunks display the Singaporean flag’s white crescent moon on the front of the red briefs in what has been described as an inappropriate fashion.”

Yahoo News quoted only the text from the illustrated Reuters original and didn’t link to it, either. Thousand words, anyone?

Meanwhile, no word on how well the team did in actual competition. Tsk.
