"Dear Izismile, I've been checking on your website every day and I really love it. I particularly like dailypicdumps which are a source of a positive inspiration that I love to share with my friends and family. Few days ago I thought I could send you some of my pictures so you could have a look."
There are some unusual prohibitions in advertising in the Muslim world. We had a post about some of them: Oldie of the Day: Censorship in Saudi Arabia (10 pics). They are based on the national and religious peculiarities of Islamic countries.

What a fan wouldn’t do to support his favorite team or, in this case, his country! Some pictures are just priceless.

Well, it seems that different countries have their own perception of how donuts should be :)
Let’s take a look.
