SAN FRANCISCO: The cost of the "Healthy Penis" campaign
SFGate: City Insider ^ | 3/6/9 | Heather Knight

Posted on 03/06/2009 1:14:55 PM PST by SmithL

We told you that Mark Bogetich, a Republican "political vulnerability researcher," had requested a variety of information about the Department of Public Health's new "Healthy Penis" campaign.

He wouldn't say why, but it could be used someday against Mayor Gavin Newsom in his run for governor. After all, health staffers walking around in giant penis costumes to promote syphillis testing might not play well in certain parts of the state.

Thanks. I hadn’t heard about the new uniforms there in SF. Now I know what to look for at the SF airport.

That’s not a realistic cartoon...

The one on the far left is shorter than the other two.

One thing I’ll say about this “new direction” America, it sure has made this country one wild and wacky place. I guess that’s what happens when you let the lunatics run the asylum.

Perhaps they should insert this campaign into the “Healthy Rectum” campaign.

It's discrimination, the caucasion penis is larger
than it's latino and black counterparts.

Talking penises have been around since the founding of the DemocRAT Party. It’s about time they dumped the jackass and picked up the penis as their mascot. Of course, the jackass was appropriate for their mascot also.

That’s probably the right answer. I didn’t used to care about the gays and then some friends took us to SF and we went three blocks down that street and then turned around and went back to Market. I actually saw two men doing in on the back of a car and then I saw a few other things that I really wish I could unsee. No one can tell me that those people are “normal” after that.

“health staffers walking around in giant penis costumes”

They could sing a theme song to the Rice-a-Roni melody:

“Healthy penis, a San Francisco treat”

But here goes...

Asian penis is there, he's just so small, you can't see him.

Maybe they should trim it, just a little.

What's the technical term for that? Circumcising the Budget?
