Me and Dr. E


Look who's been hanging out with former U.S. Surgeon General Joycelyn Elders! I forced our conference photographer to snap this snot on Monday when Dr. Elders visited us as part of Trojan Condoms' "Evolve" campaign bus tour to promote sexual health.

As some of you will recall, Elders became a political lightning rod at a 1994 U.N. HIV conference when she was asked if masturbation should be promoted among young people as a less risky alternative to sex. "I think that it is part of human sexuality," Elders said, "and perhaps it should be taught."

In the ridiculous furor that followed, Elders was fired by President Clinton (male version) - who would've been much better off had he heeded her words.

This just replaced the Gary Coleman/David Hasselhoff "thumbs up" picture as the Best Picture Ever.
