Bet they were designed by some big-man, and no one, least of all the imported Foreign Talent on the team dared make any remarks. Until Boomz, it becomes a global laughing stock. Then it is the teams junior bag-carrier who gets to carry the can.

This year's strategy must be to paralyze the competition by giving them laughing fits.

It's all in the eyes of the beholder, the design was done in good faith and I actually quite like it (The Colours) :) I wonder what's on the back side of the trunks Ha! OMG :oops: I don't think we should discriminate against gay designs.

I think it is brilliant, who said Singaporeans don't have a sense of humour, the designer should be given a medal.

Was chatting to an "advertising-type" who said that they usually submit 5 options. 3 of which are radical fun and way out and 2 that are conservative and safe. 999 times out of 1000 it is one of the last 2 that get selected - but I think something went wrong this time!

Yes; I'm familiar with this. present them with an option so obviously bad that they'll pick the option that you want.

I bet the designer wasn't expecting this curve ball--BA DUMP BUMP. Curve? Ball? Get it?
