So, we got the coolest email last night:
Hi Rob & Carey,
I just watched an episode of Chelsea Lately where one of her guests mentioned that they used a prophylactic kit. After searching up & down the internet to no avail, I finally stumbled on your site.
It literally looks like your site may be the only place on the Internet that describes what a prophylactic kit is, and thought it’d be mighty helpful if you started a Wikipedia article on prophylactics kits so others might have a source of reference!
Totally awesome. Our little antique Weenie Rescue Kit post comes to good use! Rob took some pretty cool photos, and I’d totally forgotten about this post. Enjoy your newly learned thing for the day! Thanks for the heads up, David!
The second World War generated a hotbed for invention—synthetic rubber, the M1 Garand rifle, radar, freeze drying, SPAM, advances in penicillin—but none more important than the Dough-Boy Prophylactic kit, of which I am down to my final box.
The idea is simple—a tube of ointment, a weenie hood with drawstring, and some simple-to-read, hyper-modest directions.
I chose not to engage the drawstrings in this demonstration.
References like “canal” and “parts” were about as detailed as these directions were willing to venture.
Keep your powder dry; put condoms where they belong—on the end of your rifle during a rainstorm. Who needs prevention when you have Dough-Boys, right men?
