So I had to pick up meds for a friend and the clearance table in the drug store had a LOT of boxes of condoms. The expiry date was some month in 2017.* So why would condoms be on clearance? Is it safe to buy condoms on clearance?

*by the time I get laid again, maybe sometime in 3017, these will have been long expired and/or p-in-v sex will no longer be a thing people do, so I'm asking purely hypothetically.
