–In September, China’s Guangzhou Haojian Bio-science Co. introduced new condoms whose names read phonetically as the “kelintun” and the “laiwensiji,” which of course resemble the names of a former U.S. president and his acquaintance.
–Women’s Wear Daily reported in October that rock star Marilyn Manson said he was finalizing a personal perfume deal with a “major” company, as a precursor to his own full cosmetics line.
–Parents of McGovern Elementary School students in Medway, Mass., complained to the Boston Herald in October because Paul Trufant’s septic-sewage service, located across from the school, boasts the identifying slogan on all its trucks: “Shit Happens.” Trufant said he would advertise however he wants to: “This is America, not Iraq.”
