Porn kings seek bailout

Sorry, but I couldn’t let this one go by. Hustler’s Larry Flynt and Girls Gone Wild’s Joe Francis will reportedly ask Congress for a bailout. Obviously, the potential for humor here is astronomical – I’m going to leave that to folks better qualified than me. Though I guess this might be what they meant when they said “too big to fail.” (I tried, really…)

Is this injection of federal funds going to happen? Probably not, though I would love to see those hearings. Is the request even being made seriously? Probably not. But it does expose the laughable nature of bailouts and the mad rush to get in on the government pot o’ gold. Kinda sad, really, if you think about it. In any case, never fear, this is one “money shot” the porn industry won’t get a piece of. (See? It’s just impossible to resist!)
