NYC mayoral candidate vows bigger condoms
washington times ^ | By Jessica Chasmar

Posted on 08/21/2013 6:25:01 PM PDT by Morgana

New York City mayoral hopeful Christine Quinn said Wednesday night that one of her priorities will be “improving the NYC condom,” referring to the free, government-issued condoms.

“I was at an event recently with a large number of African-American gay men, and they told me there’s a very pressing issue as it relates to New York City’s HIV work,” she said at the Black Pride Heritage Awards in Harlem, the Huffington Post reported.

The Department of Health said it hasn’t received any complaints regarding the condoms so far this year, and since 2007, the agency has received only 80 official complaints regarding condom quality or failure out of 200 million condoms distributed, the New York Post reported.

Still, Miss Quinn said she’s received an overwhelming response of people “dissatisfied with the quality.”

Would you like to ride in my beautiful balloon?
Would you like to ride in my beautiful balloon?
We could float among the stars together, you and I
For we can fly we can fly up, up and away

My beautiful, my beautiful balloon
The world’s a nicer place in my beautiful balloon
It wears a nicer face in my beautiful balloon
We can sing a song and sail along the silver sky
For we can fly we can fly up, up and away

My beautiful, my beautiful balloon
Suspended under a twilight canopy
We’ll search the clouds for a star to guide us
If by some chance you find yourself loving me
We’ll find a cloud to hide us, we’ll keep the moon beside us

Love is waiting there in my beautiful balloon
Way up in the air in my beautiful balloon
If you’ll hold my hand we’ll chase your dream across the sky
For we can fly we can fly up, up and away

My beautiful, my beautiful balloon, balloon
Up, up and away

Is there a New York mayoral candidate who is not obsessed with genitalia?

Young man, there’s no need to feel down.
I said, young man, pick yourself off the ground.
I said, young man, ‘cause you’re in a new town
There’s no need to be unhappy.

Young man, there’s a place you can go.
I said, young man, when you’re short on your dough.
You can stay there, and I’m sure you will find
Many ways to have a good time.

It’s fun to stay at the y-m-c-a.
It’s fun to stay at the y-m-c-a.

They have everything for you men to enjoy,
You can hang out with all the boys...

It’s fun to stay at the y-m-c-a.
It’s fun to stay at the y-m-c-a.

You can get yourself cleaned, you can have a good meal,
You can do whatever you feel...

Young man, are you listening to me?
I said, young man, what do you want to be?
I said, young man, you can make real your dreams.
But you got to know this one thing!

No man does it all by himself.
I said, young man, put your pride on the shelf,
And just go there, to the y.m.c.a.
I’m sure they can help you today.

It’s fun to stay at the y-m-c-a.
It’s fun to stay at the y-m-c-a.

They have everything for you men to enjoy,
You can hang out with all the boys...

It’s fun to stay at the y-m-c-a.
It’s fun to stay at the y-m-c-a.

You can get yourself cleaned, you can have a good meal,
You can do whatever you feel...

Young man, I was once in your shoes.
I said, I was down and out with the blues.
I felt no man cared if I were alive.
I felt the whole world was so jive.

That’s when someone came up to me,
And said, young man, take a walk up the street.
There’s a place there called the y.m.c.a.
They can start you back on your way.

It’s fun to stay at the y-m-c-a.
It’s fun to stay at the y-m-c-a.

They have everything for you men to enjoy,
You can hang out with all the boys...

Y-m-c-a it’s fun to stay at the y-m-c-a

Young man, young man there’s no need to feel down.
Young man, young man pick your self of the ground.

Y-m-c-a it’s fun to stay at the y-m-c-a

Young man, young man are you listnig to me.
Young man, young man who do you wanna be.

Y-m-c-a you’ll find it at the y-m-c-a.

Young man, young man does it all by his self
Young man, young man put your pride on the shelf

Y-m-c-a then justgo to the y-m-c-a.

Young man, young man I was once in you shoes.
Young man, young man I was down with the blues.

Gosh, it would be awful if people had to buy their own condoms. I mean they cost like 50 cents if you aren’t a careful shopper. Why, that’s practically like Nazi Germany or something! New York, go away.

I THOUGHT THIS WAS ONE OF THOSE SEMI/SERIOUS/SEMI SATIRE THINGIES. Satire is tough to pull off when reality is so absurd to begin with.

This is the most disgusting and perverted thing that I have ever heard of. God has written Ichabod on the portals of the USA. We have looked evil in the face and embraced it.

African-American gay men

Let's do the math:

2% of the population is homosexual.
Half of those are male, so we're at 1%.
13% of the population is black, so we're .0013 of the population.

Something is seriously wrong if this the demographic upon which resources are being wasted in a political campaign.

Size Queens. They matter so much?

I swear. The political lunatics get crazier and wackier with each “election”. That is unless you believe them when they say that condom size is the numbah one issue the people living in this country are concerned about right now.

Not only did I believe it but I could hear Rush Limbaugh singing his “Condom update song” from his show. “Up up and away...”

Let's have full-body condoms, which politicians can place over themselves to protect the people from stupid ideas.

NYC condoms are packaged with several themes. Here is the colorful "subway" theme:

Question: Why do all NYC Mayoral candidates were neckties?

The short answer: Decency.

The long answer: The tie keeps the foreskin out of sight.

See - there is some decency left in that bunch.

'large number of' or 'number of large' ?

(Wouldn't you think Weiner would have the condom demographic covered?)

A few days ago I had to get a couple of prescriptions filled, and there was a big ol' display of condoms by the pharmacy window.

There is a brand called 'Magnum', which apparently is marketed toward the larger of size.

I thought that must be their best seller, guys buying a box of Magnum, whether they fit or not, just to impress the cute girl at checkout.

NYC mayoral candidate vows bigger condoms. In an effort to appeal to the vanity and pride of voters, every one will be labeled “Extra Large”.

Wait, that didn’t sound right...

This is truly pathetic. I’m ever more glad I’m out of NYC.

Hey, schmucks, buy your own condoms! Don’t look to a lesbian to quality control them for you.

See, pathetic, like I said.

True story:

At one of their WWII conferences, Stalin and FDR were discussing what supplies the Soviets would need. Stalin mentioned condoms since Soviet condoms were prone to breakage - thus, a high rate of VD among Soviet troops.

FDR said he could supply - but had to know the size. Stalin replied that they had to be large since all Soviet troops were well-endowed.

When Stalin received the US condoms, they were all stamped:

“Texas-size SMALL” ...
