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
By AMBER SUTHERLAND, JENNIFER BAIN and TODD VENEZIA
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.”
“Today was good. Today was fun. Tomorrow is another one.”
