City Cover-up

15condom600.1.jpgIn one of the more bizarre municipal marketing moves in recent times, the city recently released a line of condoms that bare the route names of the various NY subway lines. The prophylactics have stirred up much “condom-nation” in the various local religious communities, but mayor Michael Bloomberg insists that the condoms were created solely to improve municipal health and decrease city-wide occurrences of sexually transmitted diseases, and are not a religious matter.

The condoms are being distributed at a number of local retailers, bars and lounges, and city offices throughout the boroughs. The lubricated rubbers were made by brand Lifestyles. While NYC was the first city to go this route, Washington DC followed suit.

I have yet to hear word on the… err…. “usability” of the new items. Anyone have any experiences yet? Do the packages differentiate between “Local” and “Express?”

Thanks to DC Metroblogging’s own Tom Bridge for the tip!
