    Millions of condoms seek hopeful, busy owner 16:23, Feb 23 2004

    JOHANNESBURG (Reuters) - It could be the perfect gift for the wildly ambitious Casanova.

    More than three million condoms -- available in a range of colours, sizes, types and flavours -- will go on sale in South Africa on Tuesday after the German-built factory that made them folded.

    "This sale has attracted all types from large international wholesalers to a couple of eternal optimists," said Balix Manxgaba, group director of Auction Alliance, which is handling sealed bids for the surplus stock.

    The condom factory was built as a joint venture as part of a complex arms purchase deal which saw South Africa award Germany a $594 million (318 million pounds) contract to build submarines.

    Its construction was hailed in a country with the world's biggest HIV/AIDS caseload.

    But the factory never opened, and now its remaining stock is up for sale. For the man who thinks even bigger, the condom factory itself will be up for sale next month.

    itís an election with no Democrats, in one of the whitest states in the union, where rich candidates pay $35 for your votes. Or, as Republicans call it, their vision for the future.

    You wouldn't know if you were coming or going.

    Political correctness is based on the principle that it's possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.

    was it a condom factory closing or just a home for retired seamen?
