Government Orders Cover-Up

Looks like they are pretty serious about this one too:

"Sri Lanka banned on Wednesday the use of naked or semi-naked models in advertising, saying it was seeking to protect those offended by public nudity."

I have yet to meet anyone (male or female) who is actually offended by public nudity. Sure, they may gasp, grimace and avert their gaze but are they really offended?! Hah, I think not.

Anyway, what's with this ridiculous ban? Are postcards and posters of the oft-mentioned Sigiriya frescoes going to be censored with a black marker (Mid-Eastern style) or banned completely?! Enough with these Victorian laws already! Get a life, you prudes!
