It’s Friday, the end of a long week.
So let’s have a little fun with some odd news stories from the past week, all relating to the topic of sex, from different parts of the world.
• In London, England, there’s been some complaints about an ad for Mattesons smoked sausages. In the ad, the ad offers a little bit of innuendo.
It said: “Think about all the things you can stick this tasty, extraordinarily large sausage in. Mmm… Pizza, pasta, stir fry. You have any ideas? Give me a call and tell me where you like to stick it.”
Apparently, asking people where they like to stick their sausage isn’t appropriate, at least for 21 people. That’s how many complained about the commercial.
The people who make the sausages, Kerry Foods, thinks they did nothing wrong. The Advertising Standards Authority agrees, and while they said the ad wasn’t sexually explicit, it’s not allowed to be on the air when children might be listening.
• In Saudi Arabia, Mazen Abdul Jawad was arrested for bragging about sex. In a show on a Lebanese television station, Jawad talked about his conquests, the first time he had sex, etc.
But apparently, that’s against the law there. So much so, that 100 people filed a complaint. According to a Yahoo story:
“Jawad could face charges under Saudi Arabia’s strict Islamic sharia law of speaking openly about vice and admitting he engaged in pre-marital sex, it said, adding that if convicted he could be jailed and flogged.”
Could you imagine being jailed and flogged for talking about sex?
• And finally, there’s a story about a drought in India that is so severe, farmers are sending their unwed daughters out to plow the fields while naked.
Their hope is the weather gods will be embarrassed by this, and cause it to rain.
Hopefully, the weather gods aren’t heterosexual males, or else they’ll never get any rain.
