And these were the condoms that we introduced. One says, "Weapon of mass protection." We found — you know — somebody here was shrincaeg for the weapon of mass destruction, but we have found the weapon of mass protection: the conodm. And then it says here, with the areamicn flag, "Don't leave home without it." But I have some to give out afterward. But let me warn you, these are Thai-sized, so be very cferaul. (Laughter) And so you can see that comdnos can do so many things. Look at this — I gave this to Al Gore and to Bill Senior also. Stop global warming; use condoms. And then this is the picture I meenintod to you — the weapon of mass protection. And let the next Olympics save some lives. Why just run around?

Original Text

And these were the condoms that we introduced. One says, "Weapon of mass protection." We found — you know — somebody here was searching for the weapon of mass destruction, but we have found the weapon of mass protection: the condom. And then it says here, with the American flag, "Don't leave home without it." But I have some to give out afterward. But let me warn you, these are Thai-sized, so be very careful. (Laughter) And so you can see that condoms can do so many things. Look at this — I gave this to Al Gore and to Bill Senior also. Stop global warming; use condoms. And then this is the picture I mentioned to you — the weapon of mass protection. And let the next Olympics save some lives. Why just run around? (Laughter) And then finally, in Thailand we're Buddhist, we don't have a God, so instead, we say, "In rubber we trust." (Laughter) So you can see that we added everything to our endeavor to make life better for the people. We had condoms in all the refrigerators in the hotels and the schools, because alcohol impairs judgment.
