As Hurricane Sandy's 75 mph winds approached the East Coast Sunday night, prompting government officials to declare a state of emergency, residents stocked up on necessary provisions: flashlights, batteries, canned food, blankets, ice, candles, and... we'll let this guy explain the rest:
Flashlight, batteries, canned food, blankets, ice, candles, beer, condoms, lube, my roommates sister all the things I need to survive #Sandy

Nick wasn't the only person on Twitter who included condoms in his survival kit. (Some only included them.) To honor these heroes of preparedness, we've selected the best--or at least the funniest--prophylactic tweets of Frankenstorm 2012:
Y'all going get hurricane supplies, I'm going get condoms... Sandy coming w/that wet wet, lol

We're sure that Mayor Bloomberg appreciated the previous tweet--but perhaps he should pay attention, because apparently the condom supply is dwindling...
Damn you #Sandy , all the condoms are gone!
— Diego Toro(@SacksOfHormones) October 29, 2012
And when that happens...
IM NOT WEARING NO CONDOMS IN OBSERVANCE OF #Sandy

Bad idea, unless this really is the end of the world. Stay safe during the storm, guys... in more ways than one.
