Curling condoms

As if the sport of curling wasn't hilarious enough all by itself, come to find out they have their own condoms. WITH A MARKETING CAMPAIGN!!!!

"The U.S. Curling Association has its own official condom: “Hurry Hard,” named for a phrase curlers cry to encourage faster ice-sweeping. Vancouver organizers have stocked the Olympic Village with 100,000 condoms... which works out to 14 for each of the 7,000 athletes, coaches, trainers and officials housed in the Games’ two villages."

"The citizens of the village are young, remarkably healthy, and the definition of physically attractive. In such an environment, flirting is as natural as breathing."

Is there's really anyhing else to say but... WOW, and good job! I'll never be able to watch curling without giggling again, and I had just gotten over it from when I first watched them at the 2006 Winter Games, with the brooms and the intense faces... I have to stop myself there...

Get the full story here. Happy Friday!
