I don't think this is the kind of "stimulus" they had in mind

President Bush Boosts Porn Industry With Economic Stimulus Plan, According to AIMRCo

An unforeseen and surprising beneficiary of the Economic Stimulus Plan, a plan that George Bush contends will "boost our economy and encourage job creation," has surfaced this week. An independent market-research firm, AIMRCo (Adult Internet Market Research Company), has discovered that many websites focused on adult or erotic material have experienced an upswing in sales in the recent weeks since checks have appeared in millions of Americans' mailboxes across the country.

According to Kirk Mishkin, Head Research Consultant for AIMRCo, "Many of the sites we surveyed have reported 20-30% growth in membership rates since mid-May when the checks were first sent out, and typically the summer is a slow period for this market."

'Stimulus'... the 'Invisible Hand'... 'Economic Viagra'... the jokes just write themselves, don't they?

  1. That they do. The President unveiled his rather weighty stimulus package for the country, and the people lapped it up. The economy was definitely turned on by the size of the package, and all indications are that the erection of a strong dollar can't be far behind.
