Today the intrepid Katharine Shilcutt brought EOW readers something they didn't know was missing from their lives - the edible condom. And it was... horrifying. Commenter Houston Reader wasn't pleased:
I'm all for creating awareness of very serious causes but I do not need a dirty looking condom slapped on top of my meal. No thank you. They can keep that. That's like slapping a used needle on top of my food for diabetes awareness. Wtf?
We're going to have to agree with you, there, Houston Reader. Let's have a White Russian and forget the whole thing.
Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
