Look after your soldier!

OK, I've got a chinese trader who wants to make up for a bodge with some free tins... and I can't find anything of his that I can sell - as you all know, my business is engraving and I'll put your regimental badge or Mr potatohead, and name on anything:.... but condom tins???

No more regimental ties and duvets etc...

but tell me, they won't sell will they? I'd have to take at least a fiver for the engraving... and more if I got them silver plated or something. anyone got a better (tin based) idea?

It is a bonk idea... isn't it?

Maybe I could flog 'em to the MOD - do they still hand out free condoms when you go somewhere hot & wet???

And Ring-pull mistersoft?? WassOneOfThem?

All Med centres should have codoms available ,usually from a firm (snigger) called safex , and you get a nice paper bag to take them away in, and to stick them in when you've finished I suppose. I can't imagine the MOD buying a case, when the box of condoms costs less than one case to put a couple of johnnies in. Worth a try though.

Why not use them as a "buy x many lighters and get a free condom holder" kind of offer?

I'm not the one saying I have a Chinese trader.

A good attempt at boxing clever.

Naah, I wasn't serious about the MOD... by the time I'd won the contract 3 years down line... they'd have probably changed the spec and insited that the boxes had spikes mounted inside the lid.

But I do like the freebie idea - good one!

I've got to stop being a good sport about these things... but if I do this, then yeah, OK - I'll send you one... and I'll pack it full of out of date condoms - I will... honest! - Being a Men Behaving Badly fan I've actually got a condom machine in my guest toilet, but when I bought it... it came with a few thousand condoms... and I've got about a dozen left :D . (This is actually true - apart from the dozen :cry: )

Cheers for the idea Phantom

I'll even forgive you for that annoying banner advert now!

There was a banner advert with an irritating sound effect.. as bad as the typing sound on powerpoint

The condom holder idea isn't such a bad one - but not for the still-packaged condom, more for the used one so the drips don't spill out onto the carpet or get trodden on and then picked up by the curious Barclays minor in the morning. Not too sure if you could make a TV advert for that though.
