Check out this hilarious condom-awareness spoof ad spotted on Al-Akhbar culture editor Pierre Abi Saab's Twitter account.

Overpopulation has put a huge strain on the country, so Egypt has instituted government-sponsored programs that for decades have offered free or nearly free contraception to citizens," AlterNet reports.

Meantime, fun fact for y'all: the oldest illustration of a condom can be traced back to Egypt in 1000 BC, where drawings on walls depicted Egyptians wearing condom-like sheathes. But it's debated whether these were actually used for protection or for ritual.
