    Elephant Sex Logo Criticized for Lack of Condom

    BANGKOK (Reuters) - Thai community groups wanted to use a logo featuring two elephants having sex for next year's World AIDS conference in Bangkok but the plan was criticized by health authorities because the bull was not using a condom.
    "The logo fails to convey any meaning," Dr Sombat Tanprasertsuk of the Thai government's disease control department was quoted as saying in the Nation newspaper on Tuesday.

    "There is only one message which people will get: that community workers are obsessed with sex. And it doesn't show the male elephant wearing a condom."

    The official logo for the meeting depicts three elephants standing in line. Elephants are Thailand's national symbol.

    I'm curious how they plan to get the condom on the elephant myself. "Excuse me Mr. Elephant we have this large latex thing we'd like to put over your penis, just stand still for a second." *Massacre ensues* :lol:
