free vibrators! ooops . . . never mind

another example of why watching television in unnecessary when you live in the city (especially when you only have channels 2 through 13, minus channel 12).

who would argue that this ny post article isn’t as good as any seinfeld episode?

City officials pull the plug on vibrator giveaway, leaving thousands dissatisfied

They must have rubbed Mayor Bloomberg the wrong way.

City officials pulled the plug on a vibrator giveaway by the Trojan condom company yesterday, disappointing potentially thousands of pleasure-seeking women who hoped to get their hands on some no-cost sex toys.

“I’m 57 years old. I should be able to get a vibrator!” declared Linda Postell, who was among hundreds of women (and men!) waiting in the heat on Pearl Street only to be left unsatisfied. “I have a problem with the smoking ban, and the soda ban — and now this!”

Trojan sent tingles of excitement across the city when it announced the giveaway of some 10,000 vibrating sex toys from hot-dog-style pushcarts.

But instead of climaxing in a successful giveaway, the promotion was prematurely interrupted by City Hall, which sent a dark-suited representative to put the squeeze on Trojan’s “Pleasure Carts.”

“Bloomberg doesn’t want anyone to have fun. You can’t have a giant soda. You can’t have a vibrator.”

  1. When did North Korea take over NY? Kim Dong Un needs to lighten up! Hot dog carts filled with vibrators are a cornerstone of the American dream. This is why I moved west. Not that anyone in Colorado is giving away sex toys, at least not that I know of. But you will let me know if you hear of any, right?

  2. OK. I have to admit I’ve spent the last few minutes trying to work ‘clitoris’ into a snappy faux-headline. Just can’t….

  3. 1st no big gulps…now no big O’s?!

    • there has just been an update!! Bloomberg is allowing the promotion to begin at 5:00 – 7:00 on west 14th street.
      see ny post for details! ;)

  4. I’m just a guy with a poetic reply…

    The folks wanted a free vibration,
    The craved a tingly sensation;
    The city said no,
    You all have to go,
    It may spread too much excitation.

  5. Mr, Mayor doesn’t want me to smoke,
    Or be able to order an oversized coke:
    And now no to O,
    I will now have to go,
    Use my hand for a poke.

  6. I cannot believe I have just found your blog. I have weeks of reading to do to catch up….best stuff I’ve found in a while :)
