Behold LA County's new official condom

condom310.jpgCounty Public Health's "Show Us Your Package" competition to design an official condom wrapper has a winner. It's Adam Lyons, 32, of Hollywood. His design, left, won from among more than 500 entries. He gets $750 in gift cards and a Toshiba 19” LED television with a built-in DVD. His design, and nine semi-finalists, will be on the one million free condoms that the county of Los Angeles hopes to hand out over the next year or so.
