Boner of the Day

Boner Fight for January 16th, 2020

Boner Candidate #1: CONDOM SPOIL-SPORT, GARY HERBERT.

Utah Gov. Gary Herbert has ordered state health officials to stop distributing condoms with suggestive Utah-themed packaging, created with federal funds as part of a new HIV awareness campaign. The wrappers riff on various Utah memes, with labels such as “Greatest Sex on Earth,” “SL,UT,” an image of a highway sign that displays the number of miles to towns “Fillmore” and “Beaver,” and “This is the Place” over a drawing of a bed. “It’s really just to destigmatize HIV in Utah, and get everybody talking about sexual health,” said Erin Fratto, of the Utah Department of Health’s Prevention Treatment and Care Program, in an interview on Wednesday before the governor’s action. “If the condoms are fun, relatable, sex positive — people are more apt to talk about them, which we’ve already seen.”

Boner Candidate #2: WHO WATCHES WENDY WILLIAMS? OH, YOU DO? THEN STOP.

Wendy Williams has finally apologized for making cruel comments about Oscar-winning actor Joaquin Phoenix’s cleft lip surgery scar. The talk show host said sorry to the cleft community, while encouraging viewers to ‘learn more’ about supporting the community. She also promised to donate money to Operation Smile and the American Cleft Palate-Craniofacial Association to help families dealing with the condition. Her apology came in a reply to Canadian football player Adam Bighill, who had been a vocal critic of the star’s comments. He was born with the condition and whose infant son Beau also has a cleft palate. Bighill reached out to Wendy for five days before finally getting an apology. It was sharing a photo of son Beau right before the infant went into surgery which finally seemed to resonate with the hostess.
