Saturday fun time

I was so not intending to post today. It's Saturday, for garden seed! But I sometimes do that dink around thing on the Internet and find interesting stuff. Today's "Dink Around" netted some real goodies.

This commercial for glow-in-the-dark condoms made me laugh out loud. Somehow I doubt we'll ever see this on U.S. TV.

A Colorado couple bought filbert nuts from a WalMart Supercenter. They were somewhat surprised to find a bright yellow condom inside. The police decided that no law had been broken, but WalMart was seriously chapped about the food tampering issue. The incident got fairly wide coverage in odd places. Is a filbert like a hazelnut? reports on "sewage sociology": lots of condoms showing up in the new sewage treatment plant near Manzini, Swaziland. Good news that in a country with 40 percent of the adult population HIV-positive. Unfortunately, there aren't enough sewage treatment plants to tell how widespread condom use might be in other areas of the country.

Betcha can't guess what my search term was!

You're welcome, Jay. It was a fun way to deal with what, in the U.S., is a pretty touchy (no pun intended at all whatsoever, really) subject. Nice job. :)
