She Wore an Itsy-Bitsy Teeny-Weenie Burkini
A local pool in Paris banned a muslim woman for wearing a burkini, an Islam-friendly swimsuit.
Evidently, the swimsuit wasn’t banned for religious reasons, but because it violated France’s public hygiene standards.
It's just a conspiracy - Paris prefers spandex.
Officials told Le Parisien "These clothes are used in public, so they can contain molecules, viruses, et cetera, which will go in the water and could be transmitted to other bathers. We reminded this woman that one should not bathe all dressed, just as we would tell someone who is a nudist not to bathe all naked."
The woman, who was only identified as “Carole,” plans to file discrimination charges.
President, Nicholas Sarkozy, claims that her suit is groundless and will be dismissed.
