in which menachem gets his BALLS cut off

leave a comment »

This story about the marketing nightmare that is small condoms just went up. The double entendres and spicy puns were, for the most part, excised by the editor. He took out one section wholesale:

When it comes to substituting less-toxic terms for ‘small’, condom manufacturers face what I’ll call BALLS (Bind of Alternative Labeling of Lesser Sizes): if it’s too clear that it’s referring to small condoms, then the stigma isn’t avoided; if, however, the reference is too oblique, then nobody’s the wiser, and worse, some men will be misled into buying condoms that are in fact too small for them, which is just as bad.
