Ever wanted to, um, pull a condom over Stephen Harper's head? Now's your chance.
CBC "comedian" Rick Mercer has painted the face of Canada's 22nd prime minister on a wooden penis. The piece of "art" is called "Lil' Steve".
It's all for a good cause. The wooden phallus—or "woody"—and others like it are being auctioned off as a fundraiser for the Calgary Sexual Health Centre. The centre provides pregnancy testing, birth-control and post-abortion counselling, sexuality-education programs, anti-homophobia presentations, and other services—you know, stuff Harper's Conservative base loves.
"Woodies are wooden phalluses that we use to demonstrate proper condom use," the centre's auction website states. "These woodies have been hand-decorated by some prominent supporters of our work who have graciously donated their talents so that we can offer these unique conversation pieces to other supporters like you!"
Right now, bids on "Lil' Steve" are up to $694. The auction closes on October 25.
And surely, demonstrating condom technique is all "Lil' Steve" will be used for.
