Germans asked to test condoms in national campaign  

    BERLIN, Oct 18 (Reuters) - Europe's biggest condom maker has 
asked Germans to test its products and is offering a year's 
supply as a reward. 
    "We want to find out what people want these days. Do they 
want them flavoured or ribbed?" said Ulla Zupke, a spokeswoman 
for Cologne-based Condomi AG. "Are they easy enough to roll on 
or off, are the packets easy enough to open?" 
    Zupke said 700 people had already volunteered for the survey 
which started on Monday and runs for six weeks. They will be 
given a free condom to try out. 
    "This is also about raising awareness of Aids," said Zupke, 
citing a study which said usage of condoms was falling as people 
were becoming less concerned about contracting the disease. 
    Participants will get the chance to win a 14-day holiday for 
two on the holiday island of Ibiza, a weekend trip for two in 
Paris or a year's supply of condoms. It was not immediately 
clear how many condoms that comprises.

"Zupke said 700 people had already volunteered for the survey which started on Monday and runs for six weeks. They will be given a free condom to try out."

What? The survey lasts 6 weeks, and they only gave them ONE CONDOM?

Is this like those reusable kitchen towels that you wring out and reuse? You know, like Brawny?

I can't stop laughing. Reaching for my inhaler..........

...and is offering a year's supply

It's just not worth the hassle for 3 condoms.

They said one year's supply, not three years.

Germany is progressist. They are enslaved and guided by benefits, flesh pleasure preferences is idealised over things like liberty, and welfare utopia rules. Condoms is one of those things. The fact that it does not stop AIDS is not a concern. Heck, you have adults affected with cretinism, mongoloids and others who have low IQ roaming the streets of Frankfurt as prostitutes as I am typing this right now. Germans do not care. The flesh is cheap there. When you walk there it is worse than the courtyard of Miracles where Jesus healed as described in the New Testament. Frankly, Germany is not militant in all apparence, but Germany has not changed much in its basic white skin preferences perversions. White skin type preference crimes do not exist, but the perversions and the preferences still do exist.

By any chance, was Zupke grabbing her ankles when she made the offer?

It takes Germans a little longer to figure things out, six weeks longer.

Her surname doesn't rhyme with "dupke" for nothing.

You don't suppose they need a technical observer to make sure the devices are being operated correctly?
