The Dutch are well-hung
Concertgoers at a festival in the Dutch town of Lichtenvoorde were treated to an unusual sight Friday: a pink hot air balloon 38.7 metres high, shaped exactly like a condom, drifting lazily across the sky. The balloon, with the words "Vrij Veilig" - Dutch for "Safe Sex" - emblazoned on it, was launched by the public health service in the eastern district of Gelre-IJssel, near the German border. Organisers said they plan to submit the balloon to Guinness Book of World Records in the category of "World's Biggest Condom."
