I guess it’s my week for writing about contraception.
Following on from my earlier blog about the Pill, I was amused to receive a press release from none other than Britain’s major (something like £1 of every £8 spent in the shops of the UK is spent here) supermarket chain, Tesco.
They have leapt onto the World Cup bandwagon with alacrity and are urging us to “Lie Back and Think of England” with this cut price condom offer, “Won Sixty-Six”, which they “hope will be a winner”.
Oh yes. And there’s more:
“The excitement won’t stop after England finish their matches so we’re doing our bit to help it go through the night.
We chose the £1.66 price [for a pack of condoms] because we want to restore England supporters’ pride and help them to remember it is possible to go all the way, as we did when we won the World Cup back in 66.”
Moving on from contraception, but still on the football theme (isn’t everything this week?), the admirable pinkstinks campaign team have come up with an alternative take on the usual WAGS (“Wives and Girlfriends”) acronym with this alternative and amusing WAGS logo, available on t-shirts and tote bags.
