Rubber Game

The American Life League has become apoplectic over a new line of condom key chains offered for sale on Planned Parenthood of Connecticut’s website.

They key chains, which contain condoms inside and are adorned with artwork and slogans, have been derided by the Christian group (which opposes abortion even in cases of rape, incest and when a woman’s life is in danger) as being offensive, anti-American and even blasphemous.

So, which of the following is NOT a design for one of the offending condom key chains?

A) A re-creation of Michelangelo’s famous painting of God breathing life into Adam, with a condom placed between God’s and Adam’s outstretched fingers.
B) A photo of a baby crying with the slogan “Condoms are cheaper than diapers.”
C) A picture of the Statue of Liberty holding a condom instead of a torch.
D) A cartoon of George and Barbara Bush in the back seat of a car opening up a condom wrapper with the caption, “If Only…”

D) None of the key chains include George and Barbara Bush using birth control — but if Planned Parenthood wants to use the idea for its next round of key chains, they can feel free to contact me any time.
