A spokesman for the company behind the new 'Vatican Tickler' range of Pope-shaped condoms has told of plans for an aggressive campaign, as they prepare to insert themselves into a tight market. He announced that Papal Prophylactics intends to provide stiff competition for established brands, declaring that they are now on a "slippery slope" and "no longer up to the job in hand."
A source close to a man in a pointy hat told us that they cannot prevent Catholics from using these condoms, but users should feel "very guilty" if they do. "We expect, however, that Protestants will want to use them in vast numbers," he commented, "which isn't a bad thing if it brings a long-term reduction in the vast numbers of Protestants."
The source admitted to being 'confused' about the large 'family packs' that will spearhead the range, and will be praying for guidance on a proper response. "If we can get hold of some, ah, free samples, we will be able to properly... assess... the product."
