A Singapore man was sentenced to a day in jail and a $7,500 fine for wearing a bikini on an elevator. I'm pretty sure they'd have cut him some slack had it been a beach.
He admitted to the charges of "outraging the modesty" of the woman he shared the elevator with, and "fraudulent possession of women's underwear". I'd add he outraged the aesthetic integrity of the poor lady. Also, "fraudulent possession of underwear"? What is that, like thong piracy? Is Victoria's Secret getting all MPAA on Singapore?
A search of the man's apartment (they're searching his apartment, this is priceless) turned up more underwear and some obscene films. I'm thinking something like Fantastic Four and anything with Sandra Bullock in the lead.
His lawyer argued he'd been badly affected by his parents' divorce. Ok, let me get this straight, Singapore. We don't mind disgracing the sanctity of marriage with divorce, but god forbid any modesty is outraged and men possess fabrics in the shape of panties? Now I'm gonna argue I'm being badly affected by a completely incoherent policy towards stupid and irrelevant issues. Then again, I've been doing that on this blog for the last two years...
Boomm. Was it good for you?
