From the we-can’t-make-this-up Department

Look who’s at the bailout trough:

As the 2009 AVN Adult Expo opens in Las Vegas this week, Girls Gone Wild CEO Joe Francis and Hustler magazine publisher Larry Flynt are petitioning the newly convened 111th Congress to provide a financial bailout for the adult entertainment industry along the lines of what is being sought by the Big Three automakers, a spokesperson for Francis announced today.

Adult industry leaders Flynt and Francis sent a joint request to Congress asking for $5 billion in federal assistance, “Just to see us through hard times,” Francis said.

And of course, the taxpayer foots the bill. First UAW golf courses, now $5 billion for the adult industry. And the taxpayer pays, and pays, and pays — once the bailout begins, everyone wants a part of it. As usual, “bailouts” turn to pork-fests as everyone wants a spot in line at the trough.

It’s only $5 billion, right?

    Haha! HARD times… isn’t that what they need to make a living? I couldn’t help myself. Feel free to delete this comment if it’s too juvenile/stupid.
