Murray Head Approves Of The Tiger Woods Condom Mannequin In Bangkok

Heh. Head.

More on the Murray Head angle for you young whippersnappers later, but first let’s discuss this awe-inspiring prophylacticized Tiger Woods mannequin dressed entirely in condoms that is one of the main attractions of a restaurant located in Bangkok, Thailand, fittingly named Cabbages & Condoms.

From the travel site TableConversation.com (via SPORTSbyBROOKS):

Next to Tiger is a condom-decorated Christmas tree, the perfect gift.

Insulting? Sarcastic? Not at all, if you understand the source.

Tiger, the Christmas tree, Santa Claus and condom cutouts where you put your head for a photo (see them below) are  part of a safe sex and birth control program sponsored by the Population and Community Development Association of Thailand.

The place to see them is Cabbages & Condoms, a restaurant founded by the PDA in Bangkok in 1986. The campaign is serious–and explicit. The light-hearted approach is a way to counteract embarrassment among conservative Thais. They like things to be “sanuk,” or fun and pleasant.

That’s all well and good that the Thais are using the Tiger Woods scandal to promote safe sex and all that jazz but conservative? Whatever. Try telling that to the Thai hooker who stole my clothes, wallet and passport, that no-good, double-crossing street whore. I had to do some things I’m not very proud of to get out of that godforsaken country.

Moving on, for the ’80s reference-challenged, Murray Head was a singer best known for his chess-themed song, released in 1984, called “One Night In Bangkok”. It’s the quintessential cheesy ’80s pop song and if you have never heard it before, you are a luckier person than I, because every single time I see the word Bangkok, the damn song is instantly stuck in my head. Well, the song and that fateful night in a Bangkok back alley.
