BEST COLLECTION OF YEAR-END LISTS!!! (Fimoculous)

Bad choice of words: NYC says condom ads are “cutting edge”

NYCondomStaying safe in New York City just got even sexier. The Health Department today unveiled a brand new look for the NYC Condom and launched a cutting-edge media campaign to encourage New Yorkers to “get some.” … The NYC Condom’s new look includes a fresh package design and an elegant new dispenser, which will debut in 200 New York City venues in the coming weeks.

I think they should have used “hard-hitting” and “sweet-spot” to describe the campaign. BTW, the city is also offering NYC-branded lube and female condoms.
