Newsflash! They don't! I hate going through an entire box of "one size fits all" rubber gloves trying to keep one pair from tearing. Which leaves my hands feeling like a Japanese woman's bound feet.

Reminds me of my teenage years of the one size fits all rubber gloves below the belt. Newsflash! They don't! Which made me have to frequent dirty, seedy, stinky newsstand peepshows near campus because they were the only ones selling "large" size prophylactics.

One size fits all what? Dwarves?

Reminds me of a minor international incident. Australia and New Zealand have a friendly (mostly) rivalry. Australia initialised a destabilising campaign on New Zealand by getting some extra large condoms, then repackaged them as Standard Australian Small Size and exported them to New Zealand. Poor devils have had an inferiority complex ever since.

Now, now, I heard it was the Soviets ordered some impossibly large rubbers from a U.S. manufacturer, and they stamped each package 'MADE IN U.S.A — MEDIUM' in both English and Russian.
