Indonesian officials call for ban on 'pornographic' noodle packaging...

Indonesian officials have called for a ban on a “pornographic” rice noodle snack called Bikini whose packaging features a cartoon image of a woman in a bikini and a label - printed on the bottom half - which says “squeeze me”.

The snack, which is sold online, has proven popular – albeit controversial - in the world’s largest Muslim-majority nation, where authorities have called for it to be withdrawn.

"Regardless of the producer's intention, it creates an improper situation for children and triggers pornographic thoughts," said Maria Ulfah Anshor, from the Indonesian Child Protection Commission.

"There is no relation between rice noodles and bikini. The producers could have offered something more relevant rather than sex-related content on its packaging.”

The snack, which has been on sale for about a year, has caused frenzied debate on social media and was labelled immoral by the mayor of Bandung, where it is believed to be manufactured. Full story...
