Candidates running in Egypt’s ongoing parliamentary elections are randomly assigned identifying symbols to help illiterate voters find them in the voting lists on election day.
The symbols normally feature mundane objects such as an apple, bicycle and radio. The images below were recently compiled by the BBC.
What the BBC and other news sources failed to highlight were a handful of other less than savory symbols assigned to many of the candidates.
The Joint Symbol
The Condom Symbol
The Doggy Style Symbol
The Boob Symbol
The Tampon Symbol
The Shit Symbol
The Cocaine Symbol
The Strap-on Symbol (This symbol was apparently assigned to the sole Cairene female candidate of the Salafi Nour Party)
