Things younger than Republican Presidential candidate (oh, and did I forget to mention war hero?) John McCain

Am I being “age-ist”? Maybe. But maybe not. The world is a pretty complicated place right now and I’m thinking that it’s not such a great time to elect our oldest President ever. So sue me.

The Lubricated Condom.

The Lubricated Condom is younger than John McCain.

While there are drawings of condoms and of condoms in use that date back some 3,000 years, the oldest condoms ever found were from 1640 (gross). They were made of animal intestines and are believed to have been used to prevent the transmission of STD’s.

Wow – talk about a mood killer:

“Pardon me, dearest Gwendyllen – whilst I would very much fancy having carnal relations with thou, I must first endeavour to kill and disembowel yon wild boar. Just stay in that position and I shall return in a fortnight.”


Fast forward about 300 years (and a number of years after John McCain was born) and the world was treated to a major advance in condom technology: lubrication.
