Kevin Rudd, Prime Minister of Australia, is awoken at 4am by the telephone.
"Kevin, its the health Minister here. Sorry to bother you at this hour but there is an emergency !!! I've just received word that the Condom factory in Sydney has burned to the ground. It is estimated that the entire Australian supply of condoms will be gone by the end of the week !"
PM: "SNAP !!! - the economy will never be able to cope with all those unwanted babies - we'll be ruined !!"
Health Minister: "We're going to have to ship some in from....Britain ?"
PM: "No chance !! The Poms will have a field day on this one !!"
Health Minister: "What about South Africa ?"
PM: "I'll call SA - tell them we need ten million condoms; ten inches long and eight inches thick !! That way they'll continue to respect the wallabies !"
Three days later a delighted Kevin rushes out to open the boxes.
He finds ten million condoms, 10 inches long, 8 inches thick, all coloured green and gold with small writing on each one...
MADE IN South Africa
