Cultural Differences -- Nun Promotion

One of the delights of being in a different culture is that the usual set of DO's and DON'Ts do not always apply.

After having Adolf Hitler promote (to much outcry) electric heaters, the nun's are currently busy promoting the use of condoms in the Taipei subways.

In a government health promotion poster, the sister is pictured as saying "I have no use for them, but I know that they are usefull"

If only she had called Rome before putting out the posters. On the other hand, lucky she didn't.
