Are They Serious?
I don't know if it's a gag or for real. With Larry Flynt you can't always tell. From what I know of him and his deranged sense of humor, this could well be a joke. But then you don't know.
I posted some time ago that free porn on the internet was hurting the publishers of this stuff, not that I have a tear to shed for them. Penthouse went bankrupt a few years ago because of this (I guess it still exists but I haven't seen an issue of Penthouse in years.)
Is he making a point of the absurdity on bailouts or does he really think the government can save America's porn industry? (As if it really needs to be saved.)
My gut says he's kidding, but my brain just isn't convinced. (or perhaps the other way around).
I do remember when there were shortages in the early to mid seventies and Johnny Carson jokingly said that there was a toilet paper shortage as well. He touched off a panic and, as people stocked up, stores DID run out of toilet paper. You never know where a joke will lead.
I suppose that next week pimps and pushers will start demanding that they get bailed out as well, then we can bail out the Mafia or have we already done that?
America's new growth industry. Government bailouts.
If it's for real, I say let em suffer.
