Pornographers need bailouts too!

I CANNOT BELIEVE THIS!!! Pornographers Larry Flynt (Hustler Magazine) and Girls Gone Wild CEO, Joe Francis, are looking for a financial bailout from our government.

According to MSNBC, economic times have become so bad that American's cannot afford their porn anymore. Larry Flynt is putting the responsibility on Congress, saying that they must "rejuvenate the sexual appetite of America." According to Flynt and Francis, sales of their XXX DVDs are down 22%. They plan on asking for $5 billion from the government.

What's the worst that could happen if the porn industry doesn't get it's bailout? A few pornstars may have to go out and flip burgers? A few of the industry women may have to go out and actually slap on a bikini or something? Woah. That would be devastating. Give me a break.

By the way, I have to thank my Mom for keeping me "abreast" of this situation. -Mom's the one that told me about this story - You can always count on Mom to be "in the know" when it comes to porn! :-) LOVE YOU MOM!

Of course, you realize that Flynt was tweeking some noses. They are thumbing their noses as at all the other businesses who are now hypocritically asking for government financing. From what I have heard, the porn business is actually doing rather well financially, as they usually do during times of economic stress. But I love that they took the time to take a jab at the stuffed shirt crowd (who also tend to be their best customers).
