Sarah Palin Condoms…

2 ...or why you should always have $5 in your pocket in Times Square.

I kid you not, my friends. Oh no, did I just say 'my friends'? Help, I think my brain has been infiltrated by election pop culture.

I was walking from Penn Station to meet my husband and some friends for dinner on 56th Street. For those who know NYC, this is a walk through the belly of the beast known as Times Square. At rush hour! Overstimulation is an underestimation.

I was getting into the bob and weave of the ebb and flow of bodies and traffic, street noises and meat-on-a-stick smells, when all of the sudden I heard:

"Get your Sarah Palin Condoms. Limited Edition!"

What? Are you KIDDING me? And there it was again, coming from another place. And then another. There must have been a half dozen young men carrying boxes of condoms. A whole swarm of condom hawkers. I HAD to get my hands on one of these. (BTW, they also had Obama and McCain – those are simply not funny).

But Palin condoms? With the tagline "When abortion is not an option". And fine print at the bottom reading "Hockey Mom Approved." That is absolutely hysterical. Why had I not thought of this one?

Here is the best part. A young french man came up to the vendor as I was buying one.

French Man: what are theez?

Vendor: Sarah Palin condoms.

French Man: Ugh! I wooood not pooot my deeeek in one of theeez.

And this is when I knew for sure that the humor gods had smiled down upon me once again and I could live another day!

(fyi, you can purchase them here, but they are cheaper on the street if you happen to be in Times Square).
