Prime Minister Vajpayee, was awoken at 3am by the telephone. "Sir, it's the
Minister of Health Pramod Mahajan here. Sorry to bother you
at this hour but there is a real emergency! I've just received word
through Advani jee that all three Latex and Durex factories in Kerala,
Assam and Haryana have been burnt down and bombed to the ground by
terrorists. It is estimated that the entire Indian supply of condoms will
be gone by the end of the week."
"What a disaster! The economy will never be able to cope with all those
unwanted babies- we'll be ruined!"
"We're going to have to ship some condoms in from abroad...
"No chance!! The tabloids will have a field day on this one!"
"What about Pakistan?"
"Maybe- but we don't want them to know that we are stuck. Call the
President General Musharaf - tell him we need one million condoms;
coloured gold and green; ten inches long and eight inches thick!
That way they'll know how big the Indian guns really are!!"
Vajpayee called President Musharaf, who agreed to help the India out in
their hour of need. Three days later a flight arrived from
Islamabad-full of boxes. A delighted Vajpayee rushed out to open the boxes.
He found condoms; 10 inches long; 8 inches thick, all coloured green and
gold. He then noticed in small writing on each and every one:-
MADE IN PESHAWAR, PAKISTAN. SIZE : SMALL
