THE BS NEWS QUIZ OF THE DAY
Yesterday, I asked...
"In an effort to preserve the rainforest, the government of Brazil announced it will begin producing what?"
62% said "Rainforest Hunting Parties"
- Why hunt when you can just raze?
12% said "Rainforest Jerky"
- Mmmm, teriyaki toucan.
No one went for "Rainforest Granola"
26% got it right with "Rainforest Condoms"
According to BBC News, the Brazilian government has begun producing condoms using rubber from trees in the Amazon. The health ministry says the move will help preserve the largest rainforest in the world. The new state-run factory is in the north-western state of Acre, and will initially produce 100 million condoms a year, which will be known by the name Natex.
Natex? Come on Brazil! Sexy it up a bit. How about Monkey Love Glove? The Boa Constrictor? Sloth Cloth?
