As useful as an e-condom

NYC Health Dept.'s E-Condoms Just in Time for Valentine's Day

The same folks who threw transfats ouf the Big Apple and are now trying to ban salt -- all for New Yorkers' own good of course -- unveiled their Facebook page featuring e-condoms.

As the New York Times explains:

The New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, which introduced the city's official condom on Valentine's Day two years ago, has introduced a Facebook page and Facebook application to promote the use of condoms. ...

As of Wednesday afternoon, nearly 1,500 e-condoms, as the Facebook messages are called, had been circulated through the site. The application includes a ranking that displays who has sent the most e-condoms, though several on the list — Jessica Scaperotti, Sheryl Tirol-Goodwin, Geoffrey Cowley, Sara Markt and Celina De Leon — were employees of the health department's communications office.

Happy Valentine's Day from the NYC Health Department.
