Novelty Birth Control Gum
Anyone else smell a lawsuit in the making? I mean, I know that to the average human being, this would appear to be a blatantly obvious farce. Then again, you just know that someone, somewhere, is going to try and use this gum for its “intended purpose” and try to get litigious on the makers of this product.
The tag line the gum pushes speaks volumes — Specially formulated for single ladies in their 30′s.
Apart from some grammatical issues that arise with that sentence, the winking female caricature could be poking fun at those single ladies who are actually trying to either (a) pretend to themselves that they are on birth control, or (b) pretend to their man that they are on birth control. Maybe they really want a baby, want a baby-daddy, and want all that comes along with it.
Out of fear of any ensuing legal repercussions, I would like to state now that this product does not, in fact, provide any birth control to its users. It’s gum. It’s gum with a mildly humorous gimmick. That is all.
($1.50 @ Amazon)
