An amusing new campaign is out to promote both safe sex and endangered species conservation:
â€œThe Center for Biological Diversity announced its participation in the second annual Global Population Speak Out, a month-long effort to publicize the crisis of unsustainable human population growth. The Center is speaking out as part of its overpopulation campaign, which addresses the devastating impacts of overpopulation on endangered species.
As part of its actions for GPSO, the Center for Biological Diversity will distribute 100,000 free Endangered Species Condoms beginning on Valentineâ€™s Day and has launched an educational Web site chronicling the devastating impact of human overpopulation on endangered species.â€
I am a little puzzled by the â€œwin a lifetime supply of endangered species condomsâ€ contest.Â Lifetime of â€¦.me, the human? The species on the condom?
And how do they calculate what a lifetime supply is, anyway?Â Is there an average daily condom usage statistic that you plug into (heh!) a formula of some sort?Â It probably uses your age as an adjusting denominator for the total amount.Â Iâ€™m just sayinâ€™â€¦..
Despite the painful Seuss-ian rhyme, I am very entertained by this.Â I would totally sign up to distribute the condoms if they could promise me they would all be beetle skins. So to speak.
Please suggest alternate slogans for other insectile prophylactics in the comments!
