A Few Minor Adjustments

As you saw a week ago, Beth and Lee Anna went with several other girlfriends to see the Disney Princesses on Ice. This is an advertisement they got at the show for a new Disney Princesses magazine being sold here. However, they've made a few changes to make these young ladies a little more culturally appropriate. Do you see what's different?

The text is translated into Arabic. The big sqiggly-looking print says "Emirat" which means "Princesses" of course. The funnier change is the wardrobe change for Ariel and Jasmine. Have you ever seen a mermaid in a one-piece bathing suit before?
