Stocking Stuffers... Or... FOR your Stocking Stuffer.

I realized after Harvey’s comment in my ‘condoms in Antartica’ post that I needed to post this… I can’t believe I’ve not posted it before.

About 20 years ago, Hubba worked for a mental health facility. She was a director there and she saw… well… probably just about everything. According to the ultra politically correct and uber sensitive TGOO, she ‘worked with the crazies’. From prostitutes to drug addicts to people with real mental illness, very sad situations, she saw it all.

Meanwhile, TN and Morrigan were at FSU and were roommates.

That particular Christmas, she bestowed upon my brother, TN, an economy sized bag full of condoms. She said that she wanted to make sure he and his friends were always ‘safe’ or something like that.

Of course we could not quit laughing. She said to the effect, “I just want you and all your friends to be safe…”

To which Morrigan replied, “Wha? Do you think we live in a bar?”…referring to the fact that bars, at least in Tallahassee had big bowls of condoms in them. Or at least a couple did.

As good fortune would have it, I bought one of them a big popcorn bowl for Christmas. It was a Looney Toons bowl that had that Pig guy and in script it said, “That’s All Folks!” They filled that bowl with the condoms and set it by the front door.

And… the inevitably turned into balloons at parties. I’m not sure any of them were used for sexual purposes by anyone. I’m not asking for information… but I know for a fact, there was a big party that involved blown up condoms.

So, that’s out family condom story. Heh.

The deeper irony...that would be Porky Pig.

Oh, thank God! When I heard they'd put them in a bowl, all I could think of was that they were going to pass them out to trick-or-treaters.

I gasped when you said 20 years ago...it was 14 yrs ago thank you!
It was actually Easter, and they were 75 multi colored Lifestyle condoms. Instead of died Easter eggs she sent us condoms.
Some were used appropriately...many were blown up and hung from various light fixures. Ah those were the days.
