Today sponges (Organizations, Companies, and Products)

"Was she picking up something for you?"
"Hopefully a box of sponges."

A trendy method of contraception in the 80s, the "sponge" (the most popular brand of which was the "Today") was a little, yellow, but not necessarily better, top-shaped device that was supposed to — erp — plug one's dam to prevent spillover. Pulled off the market in 1994 (much to Elaine Benes's chagrin), the Today brand hit U.S. shelves again in September 2005. With "typical" use, one can expect a failure rate of up to 16 percent. No wonder Bonnie suspects Dick of baby-daddy status...
