    ..A South African court has blocked the government from buying 11 million Chinese condoms, saying they are too small, a newspaper reported Friday.

    The finance ministry had awarded a contract to a firm called Siqamba Medical, which planned to buy the Phoenurse condoms from China, the Beeld newspaper said.

    A rival firm, Sekunjalo Investments Corporation, turned to the High Court in Pretoria after losing the bid, arguing that their condoms were 20 percent larger than the Chinese ones.

    Judge Sulet Potterill blocked the deal with Siqamba, ruling that the female condoms were too small, made from the wrong material, and were not approved by the World Health Organisation, the paper said.

    South Africa has more HIV infections than any country in the world, with 5.38 million of its 50 million people carrying the virus.

    Well i'm sure i'm not the only one with a few stereotypical jokes running through their mind right now. [​IMG]

    But on the serious side... Gotta do what ya gotta do and if that's getting larger condoms then go ahead I guess. Most interesting fact out of this, for me, was the 5.38 million out of 50 million. Tiz a pretty hefty number ._.

    I think it had more to do with this.


    As for the size thing, a condom can hold a gallon of water. No matter how big you think your (or anyone else's) penis is, unless the condom is a Ken-doll-sized novelty item, it won't be too small.

    True, and according to some of the comments, those were female condoms. Yahoo news omitted this fact to make it seem stereotypical and attract attention by doing this.
