even Hester Prynne would need one

By Diogenes (articles ) | Jan 12, 2006

In Bogota, a city councillor proposes to make it mandatory for every adult to carry a condom at all times.

By carrying a condom, the civic-minded Colombian would acknowledge that sexual intercourse is something that could happen to anyone, anywhere, at any time; so it's only prudent to be prepared.

Never been there myself, but Bogota must be an interesting city.

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:

    Whew, you really had me going. Bogota, New Jersey, was a hop, skip and jump from where I grew up!

    No, Bogota does not seem like an interesting city to me. How sad and bad, a Catholic Country is so far gone. It would have to be all the drugs they have and those that are in charge sound like they are on drugs. How insane is it to demand that you carry a condom? What are the men planning to be like hound dogs and the women be at their beck and call in the streets? I guess they want to be like Oregon ,where the ACLU claim, it is constitutional to have sex in the public square,but no prayer.

    Hmmmmm But if legally you can never be without one, don't you always have to carry more than one? Or maybe we better not go there.

    I hear if you tie them to a forked stick, they make great slingshots. That and a nice smooth pebble, and you have all the makings of a doozie of a headache for some poor city councillor. No?
