Even a computer virus is named after the events connected to the citizens of troy. I don't want to be beating on a dead horse and all, but what was the condom company thinking?

The condom company you are alluding to is called Church & Dwight Company.

What part of that name is named after the citizens of Troy?

The brand name being trojan, I should have worded the question as "...a condom brand..."

so you're serious? And here I thought you were baiting.
So far, I can't find the logic of it either, unless you think in a twisted manner, if you know what I mean.
Maybe it's Freudian psycho bullshit.
Who cares? I'll speak for myself and say I don't.

EDIT: This is what I found in another forum:

Scenario of the Trojan Horse:
Successful Raid(s)
Obsfucation - bait and switch
Utter decimation of the competition
Divide and conquer
Halloween effect: The 'treat' was really a 'trick'
Do it under cover, in the darkness of night
Haste makes waste
Effective answer to: "let me in!" "let me in!"
"Thinly veiled" disguise gets you where you want to go
Battle of the sexes
"unbridled" passion
Good things come in a box (horse)
"Winning" requires subtlety
Rolling right along.....
Easy come, easy go (slip right in, unnoticed)
Strong, invincible, conquering "hero"
Unstoppable, able to leap tall horses at a single bound
Quick change artist(s)
What you see is not what you get
Very slick move
No success without deceit!
(you get the idea)
So, if you want to INVADE um, an opening, then you COVER UP, and maybe, uh, you can TRICK your way in by pretending you're offering a nice big PRESENT.

Or something?

The name Trojan implies invasion to me. Invasion, intrusion, incoming!

WTH! They've got a product on the market to control flatulence. The brand is Beano. No kiddin'. Is that a likely sounding name?

The Trojans were also famous as warriors--after all, they withstood a ten year siege by the Argives, or so the story goes. The University of Southern California, Virginia State University and Dakota State University all use Trojans as their mascot. You have a rather narrow view of things.

I never thought of it like that.I suppose if it wasn't for Odysseus' deceptive plan, the Greeks wouldn't have been able to get inside the walls of Troy completely protected and would likely have given up and went home after being tired of the many years of laying siege to Troy. This, of course, hinting that the Trojan defensive "structure" is not completely impenetrable. Thanks for helping me put that into perspective.
