This is so funny. You know what I reckon they should do next-retail in Australia condoms and pill packages with pictures of babies on them.

What about the Camel brand of cigarettes? I'm surprised Muslim countries didn't raise a stink over that since many Muslim countries use Camels like we in the west use horses.

Under the legislation, all tobacco products sold in Australia must be in in drab, olive-brown packets with large, graphic health warnings showing diseased body parts and sick babies from Dec 1 this year.

Having a hard time telling if this is a joke or not. But then, they do have that whole cup size censorship thing going on over there.

All the cigarette companies that have been targeted by the packaging ban should take the opportunity to pub "The Australians Love Us." in subtitles on all their lines in other countries. I personally cant wait until the graphic image ones come out in the U.S, I bet some people are going to start buying them as part of a collectible set soon enough. I've still got a couple packs in my living room I picked up overseas, thinking about making a shadow box for them.

No. That is only the Arab countries. In most muslim countries you won´t find camels. You do find Camels in Australia though, so you might pass your idea to the Australian government.
