It's a Muslim Country (Warning, OT and possibly offensive)

I know this isn't what you expect on my blog, but it struck me as silly, so I'm posting it. There are five or six of these identical billboards downtown. Yes, it's a Muslim country. Well, it's a secular country with a very large Muslim population. Anyway, it struck me as a way to show how very European Kosovo is, too.

Wow!! We'd be nearly hard-pressed to find this allowed anywhere in the USA!! It's bordering on pornographic, isn't it??? Geez, I can't imagine a Muslim community's reaction to this one!!

It took me a minute to figure out what it was for. And then it made me laugh out loud! No. We'd never see that here.

They seem to treat it like any other billboard and we got "look at the strange Americans" glances when we were taking the picture. Although the country is majority Muslim, the women wear too many mini skirts (including those who really, really shouldn't). About one in a hundred, if that, wear a hijabb (the head covering), and it's really Western in its outlook. Kosovo's main goal is to become part of the EU and get rich.

For a condom ad, it's original, at least!
