Carrefour's selling WHAT?!

To preserve their traditional Muslim culture, the Qatari government works hard to prevent the most debauched aspects of Western society from entering their borders. Movies are edited for sexual content and kissing (even between Shrek and Fiona!), imported books are screened for anti-Muslim content (customs is currently holding up a shipment of Teaching Unprepared Students: Strategies for Promoting Success in Retention in Higher Education -- racy stuff!), and so on.

So can anyone explain to me how the hell Carrefour is selling LEISURE SUIT LARRY?
