Royal rubbers sold as souvenirs for Kate And William’s wedding

In celebration of Prince William and Kate Middleton’s upcoming nuptials, a British manufacturer is releasing souvenir packs of condoms. The rubbers, branded with the slogan, “Lie back and think of England,” will be on sale before the April 29 wedding. Each pack of three condoms comes with a pamphlet including a photo of the happy couple — not like that — and is presented in a timeless collector’s box. That’s good, considering these “Crown Jewels” (see what they did there?) are designed as souvenirs and are not suitable for doing what they’re actually supposed to do.
