Quotable Quotes: Bailouts Gone Wild!

In a publicity stunt Viagra would envy, adult-entertainment moguls Larry Flynt and Joe Francis said Wednesday that they are asking Washington for a $5 billion federal bailout, claiming that "the porn business is suffering from the soft economy."

Entertainment website reported that adult movie DVD sales have plummeted 22 per cent in one year.

"...the economic downturn 'has made America's appetite for sex go limp'. The statement came from Hustler magazine publisher Larry Flynt and 'Girls Gone Wild' creator Joe Francis on Wednesday.

“People are too depressed to be sexually active,” Flynt said in a news release. “This is very unhealthy as a nation. Americans can do without cars and such, but they cannot do without sex.”

"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," said Flynt.

I am not sure this is exactly the kind of stimulus President-elect Barack Obama had in mind when he said, “If we don’t act swiftly and boldly, we could see a much deeper economic downturn.”

Have a good weekend.
