Rukun Negara on Condoms and Tampons Soon?

UPDATED: NST had my same title, but to a lesser extent- the milk carton.

No, April Fool's Day is way past already. This is not a hoax.
While you are playing pranks on your mates, apparently some smart-ass suggested the Rukun Negara to be printed on products. It seems that a few companies already have agreed to do that.

Companies May Print Rukun Negara Principles On Their Product Packaging

KUALA LUMPUR, April 1 (Bernama) -- Private companies are being encouraged to print the five principles of the Rukun Negara on the packaging of their products, Deputy Information Minister Chia Kwang Chye said Saturday.

He said there was positive response from some companies.

Chia, who heads the national committee for the Rukun Negara campaign, said this to reporters after opening a forum on the Rukun Negara themed "Keluargaku, Keluarga Malaysia" (My Family, the Malaysian Family) at Putra World Trade Centre here.

The forum, organised by Persatuan Pemuda Negara (National Youth Association) and Malaysian Interfaith Network (MIN), discussed the principles of the Rukun Negara -- Belief in God, Loyalty to King and Country, Upholding the Constitution, the Rule of Law and Good Behaviour and Morality.

Could the 'coalition companies of the willing' be Durex and Tampax? So let's see how their products look like if they have agreed to do that:

Think of your country when you screw next time.(But kennot lar! How to reach M's 70 million population target liddat?)

Swinging moods during periods? Think of your country and you'd be better.

It may seem to be a disrespect but it is NOT impossible. Those are only two less harsher examples. I haven't included super-imposed versions of products by GBH or SSI-Schaefer if they have agreed to join the 'coalition companies of the willing'.
