Truly Spongeworthy News
FDA Approves Today Sponge Contraceptive for U.S. Sales, 10 Years After Product Withdrawn
The fierce loyalty of sponge fans was depicted in hilarious fashion on the sitcom "Seinfeld." The character Elaine Benes scoured stores for her favorite birth control, then stretched her supply by setting "spongeworthy" standards for prospective lovers.Let's go, ladies! It's Friday night.... but don't forget the condoms too -- nasty diseases and all. Putting a virucide or bacteria killer or whatever in them is clearly the next step.
The Today Sponge prevents pregnancy by covering the cervix and releasing spermicide from inside the soft, concave device. Roughly 250 million of the sponges were sold from 1983 to 1995, and women favored it because it was easy to obtain and use.
Good afternoon, all you ladies and spongeworthy gentlemen. Back from printing, got nothing done, except make a mess and feel depressed. So will go eat something and paint for awhile. Brought the camera in from the car for a change so perhaps will upload a snap for you if I reach a good pausing point.
Then, let's not forget it's also Art Friday. I plan to hit gescheidle, at least, for the Paxton and Cherry show.
So, without further ado, I will leave you now.
