This passage from "Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason" struck me as really hilarious the other night. Bridget is trying to buy condoms but having a hard time, going from store to store because she is embarrassed.
"7:30 p.m.: Lalala. Have done it. Was easy. Actually managed to grab two packets: One Variety Pack (spice of life) and Improved Ultra Lightweight Latex Teat Ended for Even Greater Sensitivity. Assistant looked startled at range and quality of condom choice yet strangely respectful: probably thought was a biology teacher or similar purchasing condoms to teach early developing school pupils.
7:40 p.m.: Startled by frank drawings on instruction leaflet.
7:50 p.m.: Bet they had a difficult time deciding on sizing of pictures not to make anyone feel crestfallen or over arrogant. Variety Pack is insane. 'Mates coloured condoms are vibrantly coloured for extra fun.' Extra fun? Suddenly get garish image of couples with vibrantly coloured rude bits wearing paper hats, hooting with gay sexy laughter and hitting each other with balloons. Think will throw mad Variety Pack away."
