I wish I were funny enough...

To make this up.

Fur lined knickers banned

Fur-lined underwear has been banned in Uzbekistan after authorities deemed it too sexy.

Sales of the furry slips have rocketed in temperatures that have hit the region of below minus 20C.

But the government has now banned the lingerie saying they want to protect citizens from "unbridled fantasies" caused by wearing the soft fabric.

Textile company Collapse, which has been making fur undies for both men and women, have protested the decision from the capital Tashkent, reported online newspaper Ferghana.
