My friends in England alerted me to this website for the feminine product, Jam Sponge, which is a “natural sea sponge” that you can use instead of a tampon. And, although I am loathe to talk of lady products or lady moon cycles and what have you, because no one wants to talk about that, (Sorry, lady websites and my Women and Gender Studies Professor), this is pretty funny. Also gross. But also funny. The tagline for Jam Sponge (hahahaewwwwwhahaha) is, “Women have used sponges as tampons for years but a Jam Sponge has attitude!” INDEED! Here’s how much attitude Jam Sponge has, as taken from the FAQ’s on the website:
“How does a Jam Sponge work?”
You simply squash it into your vagina and it soaks up the blood.
Listen, I’m pro environment. I recycle when it’s convenient and I totally throw things in the trash as opposed to the street sometimes. But I draw the line at the Jam Sponge. In fact, I draw the line way before Jam Sponge. Jam Sponge is on the far side of the border of the line, you have to use the Hubble Space Telescope to see how far away from my line the Jam Sponge is. That doesn’t mean that I am not morbidly fascinated with the website. Fellas, this one is probably not for you. But ladiez, I think you’ll get a shudder-y LOL out of it.
P.S. The best part of this post is that I almost published it under Dan’s name.
