One of the more bizarre things we have seen here in the Football Transfer Tavern – is this Liverpool shirt made of red condoms.
The shirt features in a ‘condom themed restaurant’ in Thailand Bangkok, which for some reason unknown failed to make an appearance in The Hangover Part Two!
Whilst being one of the most unusual things we have seen in some time, and whilst the weird mannequin kid thing is one of, if not the creepiest things to grace Bangkok – and that’s saying something – you have to say that at least the kit is nicer than Liverpool’s official second and third kits this season!
It leads you to wonder what sort of message this football shirt made of condoms is sending out, and how much further can it go?
First it’s just the kit, then what if the players get involved? Imagine a themed condom box in the style of those introduced by X Factor losers JLS, instead with the faces of your favourite Premier League players.
Imagine a pack of condoms with John Terry’s face plastered across the front. What sort of message is that sending out? ‘You can sleep with your team-mates girlfriend, as long as you stay safe.’
Or perhaps Ryan Giggs themed condoms. ‘When I was sleeping with my brothers wife, I made sure I wore a condom every time. It was the least I could do.’
I am a firm believer that condoms and football should not mix.
At least the new Liverpool condoms offer more protection than Kolo Toure at the back however!
