...and this just in...
President Bill Clinton called Jean Chretien with an emergency:
"Our largest condom factory has exploded!" the American President cried. "My people's favourite form of birth control! This is a true disaster!"
"Bill, the Canadian people would be happy to do anything within their power to help you," replied the Prime Minister.
"I do need your help," said Clinton. "Could you possibly send 1,000,000 condoms ASAP to tide us over?"
"Why certainly! I'll get right on it!" said Chretien. Oh, and one more small favour, please?" said Clinton. "Could the condoms be red, white & blue in colour at least 10" long and 4" in diameter?" said Clinton.
"No problem," replied the Prime Minister and, with that,Chretien hung up and called the President of Trojan. "I need a favour, you've got to make 1,000,000 condoms right away and send them to America."
"Consider it done," said the President of Trojan.
"Great! Now listen, they have to be red, white & blue in colour; at least 10" long and 4" in diameter."
"Easily done. Anything else?"
"Yeah," said the Prime Minister, "and print 'MADE IN CANADA, SIZE MEDIUM' on each one."
