A Swedish friend in Paris brought this to my attention.
An enterprising firm in the French town of Condom, which prides itself on Armagnac rather than rubbery objects, is marketing the “First luxury condom, chic and elegant, with this particular ‘French touch'” (sic).
Two French aristocrats are behind (so to speak) this tasteful product. The Prince de Bourbon and the Comte de Bizemont say, “Condoms protect everyone from disease. Ours protect against tackiness.”
The French toffs are surely a spoof. But it is hard to tell what is fact and what is fiction in the business of “Charles Emmanuel and Gil” in Paris.
Rather than attempting to come between them, I will instead direct you to their site at http://www.theoriginalcondom.com
