Yesterday, New Yorkers lined up to get lucky. Trojan — a company best known for condoms — was doing a giveaway; pushcarts were set up and free vibrators were being distributed. Unfortunately,
the sexy promotion drew big crowds, and the endeavor was shut down by City Hall. The good news? The punny writers at the New York Post were able to satisfy their needs:
They must have rubbed Mayor Bloomberg the wrong way…
Trojan sent tingles of excitement across the city…
But instead of climaxing in a successful giveaway…
…A dark-suited representative put the squeeze on Trojan
And, of course, the pushcarts had to "prematurely evacuate."
The stunt worked, though: Free publicity all over the damn place. Trojan is supposedly working on getting proper permits. Which means, oh, wow, they're gonna come again.
