ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
Well that was a fun night.
That is some fantastic design on the Trojans. No idea what current packaging is like (hold the wisecracks, please), but that’s just awesome. New-Yorker-esque main font, san-serif fine print, an elegant tri-tone icon, and bold blocks of colour providing vertical and horizontal balance. Like the Penguin paperbacks of condom boxes.
Ugh and Ugk: what a lovely display: I think I shall drink a beer, bake a cake and have sex now. . .
feller could have a good time in dallas with all that
Trust me baby, they’re sealed in foil and they’ve been in a cool dark place.
That milk crate better be stocked with some Barry White. It will also come in handy for some of the trickier pages in the Kama-Sutra.
We have this little booklet in our collection of 50’s kitchy knick-knacks around the house, as well as a super funny book titled “A Teenage girls Guide to Homemaking”
The 50s were before 1923, honest. So copyright-wise, you’re safe putting scans of these online.
One beautiful beer!
“Rolled Rubber Prophylactics”.
Love the Trojan packaging. As a counterpoint to the current packaging design which is pretty trite (reminds me of sinus or headache medication… seriously, check it out.), this is a clean, classy bit of design. James Dean might have rolled this into his T-shirt sleeve.
The smart hostess always makes him wrap it.
was there anything in the box?
That ain’t nothing but a party… Er, um… WAS nothing but a party even.
My mom would like that, she’s an antique artist, her blog: http://mudhoundprimitives.blogspot.com
Shit, it looks like we’re about 50 years late for a bitchin’ attic party.
Those rubbers are totally still good.
The smart hostess saves a beer for later, but she forgot about it apparently. Let’s hope she didn’t forget the condom.
Alternatively, if her child is the one cleaning out the attic, perhaps this friend’s very existence is owed to this misplacement!
eBay that shizzle.
3 dozen? what a hostess!
A can of Schmidts and 3 dozen condoms? Are we sure this wasn’t part of Adam Sandler’s and Chris Farley’s housesitting gig in the early 90s?
Word up, Micah. My thoughts exactly–you beat me by 3.5 hrs.
totally have a boner for this hostess, whomever she may be.
ha.This is funny
