Cool Cats And Kittens: You Can Now Get Joe Exotic Condoms

These are amazing.

If the first third of 2020 could be summed up by any two subjects, it would definitely be COVID-19 (coronavirus) and Tiger King.

For the first few weeks of lockdown, pretty much everyone watched the Netflix documentary. Now, Firebox has released its very own Joe Exotic condoms.


In a press released, Firebox said: “The world is in the midst of a potential isolation-induced baby boom, and there’s a global shortage of condoms. No one wants their future offspring to become a Covid-19 cliché. So has launched Joe’s Exotic Condoms, featuring the undisputed cult hero to an entire generation of bored humans trapped in their lockdown cages,

“Now you can get your paws on your very own piece of (unofficial) merch inspired by the arguably the most popular gun-toting, gay, polygamist, country musician-cum-zookeeper fashionista in pop-culture today,

“Each limited edition pack contains four quality-assured condoms, which offers big cat protection against any unexpected mishaps. By all means, #FreeJoeExotic, but keep your own crazy, sexy animal protected.”

Joe’s Exotic Condoms are available at for £9.99.

In other news Joe Exotic, aka Joe Maldonado-Passage, was married to John Finlay.

The shirt-hating Floridian became famous for his not quite perfect teeth. He’s now had them sorted, and he looks unrecognisable.


This comes after Hillsborough County Sheriff Chad Chronister reopened the case of Carole’s missing ex-husband, Jack Donald Lewis.

BGUK_1907616 - Los Angeles, - Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness, new Netflix documentary. Among the eccentrics and cult personalities in the stranger-than-fiction world of big cat owners, few stand out more than Joe Exotic, a mulleted, gun-toting polygamist and country western singer who presides over an Oklahoma roadside zoo. Charismatic but misguided, Joe and an unbelievable cast of characters including drug kingpins, conmen, and cult leaders all share a passion for big cats, and the status and attention their dangerous menageries garner. But things take a dark turn when Carole Baskin, an animal activist and owner of a big cat sanctuary, threatens to put them out of business, stoking a rivalry that eventually leads to Joe???s arrest for a murder-for-hire plot, and reveals a twisted tale where the only thing more dangerous than a big cat is its owner. --------- *BACKGRID DOES NOT CLAIM ANY COPYRIGHT OR LICENSE IN THE ATTACHED MATERIAL.

The dramatic climax of Tiger King saw Joe behind bars after being convicted for his part in a murder for hire plot against Carole, however, the road to the final episode was a long one. One of the biggest twists came early on in the series with the revelation Carole’s first husband vanished under mysterious circumstances. Now, Florida authorities are re-opening the case of Jack Donald Lewis.

Posting on Twitter, Hillsborough County Sheriff Chad Chronister shared an appeal and said, “Since @Netflix and #Covid19 #Quarantine has made #TigerKing? all the rage, I figured it was a good time to ask for new leads.” Chronister also posted a picture of Lewis and reminded everyone he hasn’t been seen since August 18, 1997.

Was Don Lewis From 'Tiger King' Killed? Theories on His Disappearance

There’s no escaping the fact Joe thinks Carole killed her husband and fed him to the tigers — an allegation that grows alongside their feud with each other. It also led to the frankly brilliant Tiger King soundbite of, “Hey Carole, it’s a voice from your past… GET ME THE F**K OUT FROM UNDER THE SEPTIC TANK!”
