A Dangerous Case of Cardboardophilia

Energy giant Shell were compelled to remove all their life-sized standees of a woman displayed at their petrol stations – just because photos of Malaysian men groping the “figure” went viral.
Indeed, this woman – the unfortunate "victim" was a 25-year-old Nor Shafila Khairusalleh, who worked at a Shell station, and who had condemned the disgusting behavior of the men who had “molested her likeness”!
The photos were generously shared all over Facebook – and they showed men kissing the cardboard cutouts, holding her hand and even grabbing her breast and crotch!
"They may just be joking, but I feel humiliated because that is still myself although it is just an image", Nor Shafila told news portal mStar.
The Anglo-Dutch group said in a statement that "we do not condone this disrespectful act, which is completely against the culture of Malaysians and Shell´s core values. We urge netizens and members of the public to refrain from sharing these images further”.
LOL!!! Too late, the pics are everywhere.
Misbehaving Malaysian men. But methinks, it is a lot more serious than that.

Methinks these men suffer from cardboardophilia and it is infectious.
