    WASHINGTON (CNN) — Another major American industry is asking for assistance as the global financial crisis continues: Hustler publisher Larry Flynt and Girls Gone Wild CEO Joe Francis said Wednesday they will request that Congress allocate $5 billion for a bailout of the adult entertainment industry.
    “The take here is that everyone and their mother want to be bailed out from the banks to the big three,” said Owen Moogan, spokesman for Larry Flynt. “The porn industry has been hurt by the downturn like everyone else and they are going to ask for the $5 billion. Is it the most serious thing in the world? Is it going to make the lives of Americans better if it happens? It is not for them to determine.”...

    Seems I recall this chap claimed to have a "religious" experience a few years back. Must be, he took those ungodly clothes off his girls!

    I'd give him a handout right quick. The hand holding the match!

    Cheers,

    Jim

    I believe Hugh Hefner should get part since he is in the industry also.

    We should also bailout starbucks... Imagine all those people with no morning jolt?

    What about Lazy Boy, did they consider what would happen if Lazy Boy went under?

    Flint looks for anyway he can to draw media attention. I doubt the guy believes for one second he'll actually get a handout. He's just looking for some way to get his name and the name of his trash in the media.

    Why is the porn industry hurting?

    Oh, I forgot...Larry Craig isn't in office, and Clinton can't run again. :D
