Ceci N'est Pas Une Pipe

Today during work, my two Ugandan colleagues were upset about a flyer. Irene was upset, specifically, because she just put up these fun flyers about some random event, and someone had just vandalized them.

Who had done it?! No one knew.

The writing said something completely disgraceful for a women's institute: "This is a condom."

How dare they!

Well, Irene and Faith discussed it at length, and finally looked to me for some insight. I looked at the flyer.

And lo! the picture Irene had pasted onto the document, sure enough, was a big, happy, waving condom.

"Well, ladies... that is indeed a condom."

Their faces dropped with a fast wash of horror.

"Oh my god! Is it really?!"

"Absolutely. A big, friendly condom."

Irene groans and runs off to tear down all of the newly-printed flyers. I couldn't help but chuckle a bit. Quite a bit. Apparently, they just had no idea!
