Singapore Men’s Water Polo Team Trunks + Crescent Moon On Country’s Flag = Hilarity

Awk-ward.

It’s funny because the crescent moon on Singapore’s national flag is unfortunately placed right in front of where their schlongs are!

Via the Toronto Sun:

The men showed up at the Asian Games in China wearing swimming trunks that had the moon of Singapore’s flag unfortunately placed on their groins.

“We would have told them that their design is inappropriate as we want elements of the flag to be treated with dignity,” the government said.

The government also said the men should show ‘dignity’ to the country’s flag.

Awesome. Even better? Due to rules and regulations regarding uniform attire at the Asian Games, teams cannot change uniforms during the tournament, therefore Singapore’s water polo team will have to compete in these hilarious trunks for the balance of the Games.

While unfortunate, the trunks sure do make a progressive fashion statement. In a way, it’s almost like each guy has their very own metaphorical banana hammock. And all men know how important support can be, symbolic or otherwise.
