As a sweeping generalisation, most people are obsessed with celebrities and, probably not a sweeping generalisation, most people are at least marginally interested in sex.

I propose to daringly combine these two facets of the popular psyche into Celebrity Condoms. These are like minature latex glove puppets lovingly rendered into likenesses of the great and the good.

I forsee a huge market for these. I especially like the idea of variety packs, these could become the next 'trading card' phenomenon as people desparately try to complete their favourite sport team or beat combo.

Alternatively themed sets could be made, great leaders of the twentieth century, sports teams, religious figures etc.

       Okay, [dentworth] I got rid of the last line.

       This is a fantastic idea - though I think actually having the likeness of George Bush stretched across the percy would present difficulties in manufacturing, printing onto rubber and possibly safety - not to mention the research and testing required.   

       What if they were normal condoms inside, and like 'Fantales' on the packaging (see link). A picture (artist' impression) of the celebrity with your branding on one side, then the other side some copy or facts about their sex life, sexy movies, reasons why they are metaphorically rogering the country.   

       I had a similar idea with personalised vibrators, having the picture of a celebrity or yourself on the end of a dildo - but this is much more tradable.

       Nothing like Ron Jeremy's face on a condom.

       Is it just me or can anyone else see [contracts] annotations. I'd love to know what he/she is saying to you [dentworth]

       This is just an Entertainment Tonight variation on the ancient art of Kokigami.

       I knew you were versatile, UB, but the mind boggles!

       Mine would be Jimi Hendrix.   

       Actually, a FOAF got Jimi Hendrix's face tattooed, in full cover, all over her back. I've never had a chance to see it--I think it's awesome, although one wonders about having to (basically) pump Jimi on the chin.
