We're baaaaack...!! It's election time in America again, which means it's prime time for nuts, dicks, and boobs! Please feel free to welcome us back by sending any sort of food or - of course - tube socks. Also, it would be fun if you would leave some comments. (Unless, of course, they're negative comments. I mean - who needs that?)

The Tale of the Trojan Pig
(Video from Trojan Condoms)
Trojan Condoms new ad campaign is called "Evolve," and is designed to start a discussion about sexual attitudes in America (as well as sell condoms, of course). Unfortunately, CBS and FOX have rejected their new ad, with FOX stating that "Contraceptive advertising must stress health-related uses rather than the prevention of pregnancy," and CBS stating "while we understand and appreciate the humor of this creative [ad], we do not find it appropriate for our network even with late-night-only restrictions."
So apparently these networks have no problem broadcasting salacious programming of their own during prime-time, but draw the line at allowing the Trojan company to broadcast a funny ad promoting responsible sexual behavior. Isn't hypocrisy wonderful?
