If it’s weird, I’ll buy it

Some of the many weird items on sale on eBay

A new product that is expected to hit the market this month deserves some serious attention, both between the sheets and at the dinner table. You won’t be too far wrong to say that no other product has as diverse a function as this item – it promises protection against undesired outcomes and delights the palate at the same time.

It is the condom – a humble piece of rubber for all intents and purposes. However, this comes with a flavour, and nothing less than the Malaysian favourite – the nasi lemak.

Why a prophylactic should also be agreeable to the tastebuds is best left to the imagination.

According to an Agence France-Press report in a recent issue of The Nation, an English-language daily newspaper in Thailand, the new and perhaps tasty condom is a product of Karex Bhd, the world’s biggest producer of such contraceptives.
