While it may not have compared to Expedia’s $99 trip to Mars, or Squeez Bacon from Thinkgeek, I celebrated April Fools in my own fashion by convincing some dear friends of mine to exercise option 10 of Alternative Condom Usage: condoms as hair ties.
Sure there was less convincing and more demanding, bribing, and blackmailing involved, but the point is… I actually don’t know what the point of this is. Nevertheless, happy April Fools.
I noted that it wasn’t very apparent that the tie was actually a condom. Fortunately, the ruse did not work. She replied:
Well, it was apparent if you looked closely. I was hoping that no one would but halfway in the middle of lunch britton took a good look at my hair and was like, “wait, what is that…omg you didn’t” which then immediately caught the attention of the rest of the table.
I had some explainin’ to do
Needless to say, the effort to procure the hair ties was also epic:
I forgot to bring a bag with me so I had the package in a white cvs bag which is pretty much see-through. So then there’s the security screening and I plopped it down on the conveyor belt to get scanned. This would’ve been fine and dandy had the bag’s contents not been extremely light, causing it to get stuck in the conveyor belt mechanism.
So the security guard had to reach in and pull it out; definitely took a long look at the bag, and then handed it to me. When I took it, you could clearly see “trojan” on the underside of the bag.
I have the best friends.
