Have you heard the one about the Louis Vuitton condom?
Actually there are at least a hundred jokes on Twitter. So far. About the alleged condom on sale by the high-end French fashion house. However, mes amis, it is not an LV product. Even if it is priced at $68.
According to the site incrediblethings.com, “It was designed by Irakli Kiziria, who is not affiliated with the company, with hopes to launch the product on World Aids Day to benefit amfAr (The Foundation for AIDS Research).”
Michael Vick and Tiger Woods are America’s most “disliked” athletes, according to Forbes.
Vick, the Eagles quarterback who spent time in jail over dog fighting charges, and Woods, the golf superstar still recovering from a scandal over his extramarital affairs, each had a “dislike” score of 60 percent.
The survey was conducted by Nielsen and E-Poll Market Research.
Forbes gave Vick the crown since Woods drew fewer “dislike a lot” responses.
Rounding out the top five were:
New York Jets receiver Plaxico Burress (56 percent) — served gun charges for shooting himself in the foot with an unlicensed handgun.
Detroit Lions defensive lineman Ndamukong Suh (51 percent) — stomped a Green Bay Packers player in a Thanksgiving Day game this year.
NBA basketball player Kris Humphries — who had a short-lived marriage to Kim Kardashian.
LeBron James (NBA, 48 percent), Kobe Bryan (NBA, 45), Alex Rodriguez (MLB, 44) and Kurt Busch (NASCAR, 42) were 6-10.

A terrifying sea monster 40-foot-long whale shark was retrieved by fishermen in western Pakistan Tuesday, 10 days after they spotted the creature unconscious out in the Arabian Sea, ABC News reported.
Their discovery is among the largest-ever whale sharks, a species of sharks that eats plankton and does not typically pose a threat to humans.
From the story:
Curious onlookers swarmed the pier while two cranes attempted to lift the shark, approximately 40 to 50-feet long and six-feet wide, out of the water. After failing to reel in the fish, more cranes, capable of lifting heavier weights, were called in for the task. The shark was finally lifted from the sea after several hours of efforts and sold for 1.7 million Rupees ($18,750).
It took only a second for a baby stroller to slip away and roll onto train tracks in Australia, security footage released this week shows. The 5-month-old boy survived with barely a scratch, according to the UK’s Telegraph.
What’s really astounding: A passerby didn’t even look up from his phone as the baby rolled by him and off the platform.
Station officials confirmed that the baby was rescued uninjured before the next train arrived.
The incident at Fairfield station late last year is understood to be one of three involving prams rolling off platforms in 2011 alone.
An identical accident involving a 6-month old baby at a different Melbourne station in 2009 prompted the redesign of platforms in the Australian city, but so far only new platforms slope away from the tracks.
A screen shot of the Congressman’s original post was picked up by the site Literally Unbelievable, showing a snarky comment on the original post that said “The Onion is satire. How exactly did you get elected?” The link has since been deleted from the Congressman’s page.
Hudson Hongo, the blogger who runs Literally Unbelievable, said a “keen-eyed reader” sent in Fleming’s Facebook status after the Onion re-posted the “Abortionplex” article on Friday in response to the Susan G. Komen controversy. “It seems that Rep. Fleming, like many others, has given the nearly year-old article a second life,” Hongo said.

The National Education Association wants nothing to do with former adult film star Sasha Grey or the money made from her films.
Assence Films sought to donate a portion of the profits from Grey’s upcoming movie as part of her “recent efforts to expose children to the world of literature,” according to the Huffington Post.
But in a statement Monday to The Huffington Post, NEA officials said “no, thanks.”
“Sasha Grey is not affiliated with the National Education Association’s Read Across America program nor has she been invited or endorsed by NEA to read at any of the association’s Read Across America Day events, and NEA will not accept any proceeds from her latest, or any of her films,” the statement reads. The NEA is the nation’s largest teachers’ union.
Grey, who appeared in HBO’s “Entourage,” previously made headlines for her educational efforts when she read to first- and third-grade students at a Compton, Calif., elementary school.
