Condoms are certainly very useful! Apart from abstaining from pregnancies, they can even help you in deadly circumstances. Yes, provided you be creative!
Residents of central Florida donned fishing waders, boots and bug spray and canoed or kayaked to their homes on streets where floodwaters continued rising on Sunday despite it being four days since Hurricane Ian tore through the state. Hurricane Ian killed at least 68 people, including 61 in Florida, as per the latest reports.
Hundreds of thousands of people and businesses remained without power as of Sunday night.
As journalists covered rescue efforts in Florida, TV viewers witnessed a comic scenario as a journalist who was reporting on the ground in Ft. Myers, FL, during Hurricane Ian, wrapped a condom on her microphone to avoid it from getting wet.
After pictures of NBC2’s Kyla Galer reporting with a condom on her microphone went viral on Twitter, netizens were quite intrigued by the journalist’s mic and her creativity to use it. She felt obligated to set the record straight.
In a video shared by NowThis on Twitter, the reporter can be heard saying, “A lot of people are asking what is on my microphone. It is what you think it is. It’s a condom. It helps protect the gear. We can’t get these mics wet. There’s a lot of wind and rain. So we gotta do what we gotta do, that is put a condom on the microphone.”
The video has gone viral and it has even garnered over 68k views on Twitter.
Well, this scenario rightfully justifies the quote, "Necessity is the mother of invention."
