China Names Condom for Bill Clinton 
A Chinese company is honoring ex-president Bill Clinton by naming a new
line of condoms after him - along with a companion line of condoms that
will be named after his ex-girlfriend, Monica Lewinsky. 
Reports Britain's Sky News: The Guangzhou Haokian Bio-science company has
registered their names as trademarks for the contraceptives. 
The condoms will display Chinese spellings: Kelitun and Laiwensiji. 
A 12-pack of Clintons is expected to cost $5.00, with Lewinskys selling
at a discounted price of just over $3.00. 
The manufacturer's general manager, Liu Wenhua, told Sky News that naming
his condoms for Clinton was perfectly legal, explaining that "trademarks
of two foreign surnames and can't be seen as a violation of rights." 
Clinton is the only U.S. president to be honored with his own condom
brand line. 
New York Sen. Hillary Clinton was unavailable to comment on her husband's
latest achievement.
