Made In The U.S.A.

Is that a Qingdao Double Butterfly in your pants or are you just happy to see me?

In a move expected to cost 300 American jobs, the government is switching to cheaper off-shore condoms, including some made in China.

The excerpt above is taken from a Kansas City Star story about USAID, distributors of more than 10 billion MITUSA condoms to prevent AIDS in poor communities around the world, moving from Alabama-made condoms to Chinese-made condoms.

The Alabama company is called Alatech. I would not buy a condom from a company called Alatech. As much because of the unsexy name as because Alatech’s condoms cost about five cents each and are Hefty-bag tough.

The Chinese company is called Qingdao Double Butterfly Group. I would buy a condom from a company called Qingdao Double Butterfly Group. Especially if those condoms cost three cents less, are made of a thinner and more sensitive rubber even if it’s more prone to breaking, and are coated with lead paint.

Besides, according to Alatech’s web site, the company is well versed in making condoms for “the young sophisticated user.”
