Lockmeupology- Condom to the Left, Condom to the Right

Once upon a time, a girl went driving through the beautiful French countryside. She drank in the beauty of the endless fields of lavender and sunflower. She drove down countless old tree-lined roads, squealed over the charming country chateaux, and marveled at the architecture of each fortified town she drove through.



"Oh look, an intersection up ahead with more cute signs! 
I wonder where I should go next."






"Oh well, I guess no matter which road I take, I know I'll be safe!"

  1. Oh ma goodness!!! I'm thinking there is a Lay-Tex joke in this somewhere, but I've not had enough caffeine to come UP with it. (yeah, I could have change my come spelling, but figured that was a little too much...even for a condom post)

  2. Well, they must have a lot of hanky-panky in that area. I wonder what happens in Centre ville? Do I really want to know. . .?

  8. Where were these signs in the 60s, 70s, and 80s?! And why don't we have signs for "milk", "eggs", and "lubricants"? x-)

  9. Well, a condom is supposed to cover the whole thing, so it makes sense that it goes in both directions. Um, maybe.

  10. Nice of them to provide directions for both ways in. Very egalitarian.

  11. If I'm torn, do I need to pee on a stick to decide?

  14. This country seems so insouciant! Wonder if these signs seem bizarre to any native French, lol.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Hahaha!! You're so funny! Those signs are really odd, huh?

  16. Is there an explanation for this??? Are they really indicating stops where truckers (?) can acquire condoms? Does it have another meaning in French?

    1. Lol, no.

      In French, it's just the name of a town in the south of France. According to wikipedia, "The toponym Condom comes from the Gaulish words condate-ó-magos which means "market of the confluence."

      In English, well, it just makes a lot of us giggle. :)

  18. Nothing better than French signage that translates inappropriately into English!

    ReplyDelete
  19. I saw the title and had to come.

    Never mind.... :P

  20. Hey Elise!

    I love it. Okay, I love it in a safe way. Maybe a "French Safe" sort of way. Then you came to a fork in the road. Ooh la la and mon dieu! Nice to a see a photo of yourself. Such a realistic self-portrait!

    I really must go now and head to Cockshoot Close, Oxfordshire, England :)

  21. Oh this gets my favorite blog post of the day vote! You made me laugh out loud. Love.

  22. I just snorted my coffee through my nose. Condom is a must visit place or two places. Or one place visited from two different directions.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Ha ha. There must be a lot of drugstores in that area.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Hmm, coming here with something to say.... it's hard.

    PS: Did you know condoms in Ireland and England are known as French Letters?

    (Which brings a "hole" new meaning to "Flash Fiction"...)

    PPS: Good to see you around town... it's been awhile...

    PPPS: Do you really drive one of those old Citroens???

  27. Hi Elise .. well this had everyone having fun and laughing - I like Mark's comment .. the OIrish way .. and Gary's - Penny's way ... we have some great names here .. but they change them on occasion - as it's not good for the neighbourhood ... now your Condoms are split down the middle and not much use ...amazing photo - but wonderful to read .. and love the Elise pics .. cheers Hilary

  28. Oh my. This sounds like the beginning of one of those gorn flicks like "The Human Centipede." Only this time it is a young Elise taking a trip to "Condom" when her car breaks down in the woods....
