This reminded me of the newly established indecency law in Indonesia. Really crazy stuff. For a period of time no women are allowed to wear sleeveless shirt for the fear of being fined (provocative wear).

This is probably why the Indonesian people and the Japanese people get along well, they're equally strange.
