the district doesn't sleep alone tonight

Tens of thousands of condoms provided free by the District to curb HIV-AIDS have been returned to the health department because of complaints that their paper packaging is easily damaged and could render the condoms ineffective...

Volunteers concerned about why interest had dropped began asking people who had picked up the condoms. They were told about packets ripping in purses or bursting open in pockets. As a result, recipients said they had little confidence that the condoms would offer protection. In addition, expiration dates on some of the Chinese-made condoms were illegible.

This was all part of a government program titled "Coming Together to Stop HIV in D.C." Nice play on words, you silly municipal public health bureaucrats.

Why someone would trust a condom that reads "Made in China" I will never understand. The evil red menace has already killed our pets and tried to harm our children. Perhaps D.C. officials actually want to promote pregnancy and the spread of sexually-transmitted diseases.


I guess you could say this is the "Original Pime". I stopped blogging here regularly in May 2008 (if you don't count the B-Sides diversion - yes it gets confusing) when I joined the Tumblr revolution. Going forward bravely into 2009, this site will serve to house any large image work I produce.

Peace out.
