yet more proof

Even more proof that the truth is stranger than ficton: Dog Condoms – Product Recall:

Use of these recalled condoms may result in unwanted canine pregnancies. Additionally, meat-scented Dog Condoms® may present a choking hazard, especially for smaller dogs. … Another 15 consumers reported choking incidents resulting from animals attempting to ingest Dog Condoms® meat-scented condoms. No fatalities were reported as a result of the choking incidents, but medical intervention was required in 4 cases.

UPDATE: Thanks to the miracle of cross-posing, I must say that BotAnarchy (aka Kenneth Delron Buber Firewater McKenzie) responded to the above best with a simple Ghostbusters quote: “Sorry, Venkman, I’m terrified beyond the capacity for rational thought.” He then went on (at length) to do us all the courtesy of breaking it down:

Actually, now that I’ve had time to recover, I think the line: … “Additionally, meat-scented Dog Condoms® may present a choking hazard, especially for smaller dogs.” … may just be the most brilliant thing I have ever read. I mean, the sentence is said in that off-hand afterthought sort of way right away with the use of the word additionally. It lowers your mind’s defenses, and then WHAM, assaults you with such a disturbing image of flesh smelling canine prophylactics…made authentic and even more horrific by the registered trademark symbol. And then, if the image
isn’t burned in your head quite yet, they mention the little dogs. Forcing your mind to get a clear vision of a yorkshire terrier
gagging on latex…scented latex. All the senses of the nightmarish scene are touched upon in your head: sight, sound, touch, smell and worst of all, taste.

Happy birthday, sir!
