Made in the USA

Well at least some things are still being manufactured in the USA. Though I'm thinking that, if the GOP takes the White House this year, these products will probably comprise a significant share of the Export Market... once the Conservatives make their use illegal here.

Oh I doubt they will ever make condoms illegal. Men use them.

I think Frothy Rick mentioned a word or two on how sinful condoms were. Too bad his mom and dad didn't use one.

Robert the Skeptic said...

Rubye Point well made... although, market research reveals that a significant amount of condoms are actually purchased by women.

Bum Don't ya wish!!

I love "how it's made" shows. The testing part was hysterical.

But I wish the guy had refrained from saying "These definitely aren't your grandfather's condoms." Now THERE'S an image I don't need!

And I'm also skeptical that people actually prefer to use them these days, as the guy insists. They may be a necessity in many cases, but I don't know anyone, male or female, who doesn't prefer flesh.

Amusing that he's standing in front of a periodic table.
Good to know that one does not have to worry about outsourced quality control issues. Too much. Yet.

Heidrun Khokhar said...

Okay it's a topic that may amuse but how many of you know that many of the casual sex user youths are actually using those things? And they now come with flavour enhancements and are right up by the cash register in some pharmaceutical shops.
An aside; do soldiers still get these things supplied (as was the case in earlier wars) ? Male and female?

Robert the Skeptic said...

SecretAgent Hey!!! I'm a grandfather! I have a 'friend' I know who sometimes uses them alternately to extend the duration pariod of the activity at issue therein.

Cryptos Scientifically Tested, Mother Approved!

Heidrun Conservatives in this country get all up in a dither where condoms are made freely available to young people - their (moronic) rationale is that it encourages them to have sex (as opposed to Abstinence). So far, birth control has the better track record by a large margin.

Haha! The testing part. Haha!
I don't like the Twitter very much, but if I used it, I would totally re-tweet and credit you with:
"once the Republicans make them illegal."
Thx for making my day.

There seems such a vast disconnect between the inability to offer quality education to the current generation of children and the insistence that we continue to expand our population. Let us just say there is much about our country, let alone the world, that I don't understand. And I forget that quality education is not a priority for all political parties. What a year it has already been.

Robert the Skeptic said...

Dawn I don't Twitter either; it's all I can do to keep up with the technology. I have irritating reminders from FaceBook and LinkedIn that I am delinquent on doing somethingorother.

Marylinn What a year indeed, and I think we are only getting started. I expect this coming election to showcase the lowest of our lowest common denominator - it will be nasty indeed.

Slinkys are still made in the USA. If everyone in America buys one, we could turn this country around! LOL!

Robert the Skeptic said...

TommykeyI've got a buddy who asserts that all we need to do is have half the population open laundries, the other half open restaurants - I eat at your restaurant, you come to my laundry... economy fixed!
