CROP AT ONE'S ELBOW

Britney Spears naked on the cover of Harpers BazaarThe operators of the Tokyo underground have cracked down on Britney Spears, banning her from the elbow down. The naked Britney Spears on the cover of Harpers Bazaar was considered a bit too much for the advertising boards on the network - not, as you might have thought, because the fake tan and airbrushing made her look like some sort of freaky ass, but for fear that it might make commuters all hot and bothered:

A transport official said: "We thought some of our customers would find it to be overly stimulating."

However they did agree to show the poster covered at Britney's elbow with a sign reading: "We apologise for hiding part of a beautiful image of a mother-to-be".


In unrelated news, a large number of Tokyo travellers are turning up for their journeys carrying wallpaper scrapers and hopeful expressions.

Sounds a little doubtful to me. I've seen people reading manga porn on the Tokyo subway, so a picture of naked plump Yank dimwit's hardly going to raise any eyebrows.

It surprises me as well, given the pornographic nature of things that many salarymen read openly on public transport over here. On the other hand, there are a lot of idiots who might possibly get turned on and then decide to molest some woman on the train (such a common occurrence here that they7ve introduced women-only carriages on some lines).
