It's easy to find the poster I added, but I can't take credit for it. I read about some genius posting these around New York City. I found it hillarious, and so did anyone I showed it too. It went over pretty well... for a few hours. But once again, someone without a sense of humor took these down too.

One year later, the Dash buttons are still real and they're more spectacular than ever.
The buttons are available for free to Amazon Prime members, a subscription service that offers expedited shipping and other perks. They are said to be gaining in popularity.
"Prime members are using Dash Buttons at an increasing rate—over the last three months, Dash Button orders have grown by more than 75%," Daniel Rausch, director of Amazon Dash, said in a statement. "Customers are using Dash Buttons more than once a minute, helping ensure they never run out of their everyday essentials."
The growing list of Dash buttons, silly as they might sound, are a key part of Amazon's ambitious efforts to become the first and last stop for every purchase, whether it be an expensive television or a refill of toilet paper.
The road to that goal is paved with its Echo voice-powered assistant, a robust website and apps and, of course, a button for ordering condoms.
