Water Polo Team In Trouble For 'Inappropriate' Swimwear Design

Singapre

Singapore's national water polo team is in trouble for designing their new swimwear with an "inappropriate" placement of the crescent moon on the country's flag. According to the AP, "'We didn't have the slightest intention to do anything funny on our trunks to insult Singapore,' team manager Samuel Wong, who helped design the trunks."

Oops.

  2. LOL...

    I guess it could be worse...the crescent moon could simulated a dick going up the ass.

  4. Maybe it's just me, but that is...sort of hot. The guy on the left especially.

    Not to make light of this or anything...

  5. What is the correct way to salute the flag?

    Sam Wong is either wickedly naughty or deeply, deeply dim.

  9. GREAT design. I like it a lot. I especially like the placement of the crescent moon. I'd be delighted to help with private fittings. I live in NYC but I can be in Singapore within, oh, 18 hours or so. Is the phone number of the dude on the right available so I can make an appointment?

  10. People get upset over the dumbest things.

  11. In other words, "So we ran this one up the flag pole but our people didn't salute."

  12. Not a lot of space to work with on a speedo. People are so silly.

  14. I plan to study the picture for a long time to figure out my opinion.

  15. i think its the opposite of insulting. a dick isnt a bad thing, and historically its a symbol of power. i think the crescent is actually placed in the only appropriate place on the whole suit.

    @WTF: the last time someone promised me that he almost split me in half. ;)

  16. @MAX You're right. I mean, U.S. swimmers have had stars on their suits and it was no problem. Of course, this is the country with the allegedly largest muslim population in the world, so I guess, as most muslims do, they're bound to get upset over the dumbest things.

  17. I agree with WTF. There is nothing "insulting" about the fact that some people have penises.
    If the flag were on the back, would they be upset that the moon brings to mind "mooning?" And if the moon were on the side, would it be insulting that it appears hooked on the hipbone? And then what about the stars?
    Some poeple have penises; get over it.

    @MikeJ: I think your confusing the tiny city-state of Singapore with their neighbor, Indonesia. Singapore has only 750,000 Muslims among their population of 5 million.

  18. Singapore is a shame-based authoritarian democracy, much like the US.

  19. And, er, I'll have another Singapore Sling please...

  20. Nothing inappropriate from my POV ;)

  21. Funny, major fashion mistake. I don't understand the need for a flag on swimsuits. They cannot change them because the rule is the swimsuits the team wears on the first match are the swimsuits for the whole tournament.
    As a gay man, what an outfit for a party.

  22. Ha, Look at the sign between the 2nd and 3rd guy, "sin."

    Somebody's going to get an ass whipping! They do that for a lost less than this in Singapore.

  23. come on, they're Asian! They should be flattered by the size of the moon has an enhancing effect.

  24. The guy on the far left does not have a swimmer's body at all.

  25. "The guy on the far left does not have a swimmer's body at all."

    Cannon ball?
