Many of the thousands of people on the National Mall today will leave with a new Barack Obama T-shirt or hat. But Jesse Meyerson, an employee of novelty condom company Say It With a Condom, hopes they’ll leave with something else: his Romney- and Obama-themed prophylactics.
The condoms are one for $5, three for $10. Myerson says sales today have been brisk so far, but there’s a problem. Despite buying what he claims was the entire national supply of black condom rubber, Say It With a Condom couldn’t produce as many black condoms as it had hoped. Instead, some are the usual condom yellow.
“Our goal was to have a black condom in all the Obama ones, as a bonus,” says Meyerson.
