If Only Cap'n Bob Were Australian

CBS News (AP): A major condom brand said Friday it expected thousands of applicants for a new unpaid job on offer _ condom tester.

Durex said 200 adult Australians _ men and women _ are wanted to test a range of its condoms.

While the successful applicants will not be paid, each will receive a pack of Durex sex products, a chance to win 1,000 Australian dollars ($857 U.S.), plus professional prestige, the company said in a statement.

'Who wouldn't want to have a chance with an actual authorized professional?' Durex marketing manager Sam White asked.

'Durex is expecting thousands of applicants,' the statement said.

Hopefuls must explain in their applications why they would make 'expert' condom testers."

Is there a childcare allowance if they fail?

Bill Crider said...

Probably not, since they're not even paying the testers.

G'day, mate. Shrimp on the barbie. Tie me kangaroo down, sport. Koalas and wallabys. Abros. Botany Bay. Wot's new, wot?

By golly, you are Australian.

It does lead to the question of exactly how you're expected to test condoms? Are you expected to provide a willing "co-tester" or is one provided for you, or indeed, is it a solo job? Or are you expected to test them like water balloons?

I know how the Cap'n would do it.
