You know its bad out there when ...
Posted by: McQ on Wednesday, January 07, 2009

This gives "too big to fail" an entirely new meaning.
Another major American industry is asking for assistance as the global financial crisis continues: Hustler publisher Larry Flynt and Girls Gone Wild CEO Joe Francis said Wednesday they will request that Congress allocate $5 billion for a bailout of the adult entertainment industry.

“The take here is that everyone and their mother want to be bailed out from the banks to the big three,” said Owen Moogan, spokesman for Larry Flynt. “The porn industry has been hurt by the downturn like everyone else and they are going to ask for the $5 billion. Is it the most serious thing in the world? Is it going to make the lives of Americans better if it happens? It is not for them to determine.”

Francis said in a statement that “the US government should actively support the adult industry's survival and growth, just as it feels the need to support any other industry cherished by the American people."
This is obviously a publicity-seeking jab at all the rent seekers out there, but I do appreciate the effort even if it comes from an unlikely source.
"People are too depressed to be sexually active," Flynt said in the statement. "This is very unhealthy as a nation. Americans can do without cars and such but they cannot do without sex."

"With all this economic misery and people losing all that money, sex is the farthest thing from their mind. It's time for congress to rejuvenate the sexual appetite of America. The only way they can do this is by supporting the adult industry and doing it quickly."
My only question is how Flynt expects Nancy Peolosi, Harry Reid and Barney Frank to "rejuvinate" anything to do with America's "sexual appetite". Yeesh ...

This is friggin’ HILLARIOUS! Flynt may be a dirtbag, but you’ve got to hand it to the man for not being afraid to stick it to the government.

McQ - My only question is how Flynt expects Nancy Peolosi, Harry Reid and Barney Frank to "rejuvinate" anything to do with America’s "sexual appetite".

I just threw up a little in my mouth. Thanks a lot. :-(

How do you know that in exchange for the money Pelosi, Reid, and Barney Frank won’t appear in Larry Flynt’s magazines?

Then again, Frank might appear in Playgirl. As the "Beefcake of the Week."

I’m all for it so long as Bill Clinton is named the adult entertainment czar.

Call on "Toe-Tapping" Graig, Rep. Mel Reynolds and Gerry Studds for pointers?

They can always check with former President Clinton.
He knows quite a bit about this sex stuff.

Well, look, we know Spitzer knows all about using large sums of other people’s money to get his package stimulated. Makes him a bit of an expert on the matter.

Oops... hit it too soon.
Since Spitzer’s such an expert, and since he recently spoke up about Obama’s stimulus package, perhaps he’ll ahve soemthing to say to this important issue?

Really? Really??

I’m glad the Mrs. does not know about this. No stimulus needed at the ’meagain’ house. None at all ;-0
