Porn Bailout; Primary Cause of Pun Riddled Articles

In quite possibly the most painfully pun ridden article I have ever read from a ‘serious’ source the LA Daily News Writes:

“I’m not taking this bailout request seriously,” Presley said. “I love Larry. He’s a great guy. But he doesn’t need $5 billion.”

Her reaction echoed those of a San Fernando Valley congressman and the head of a Valley business group.

“I regret that two porn-industry executives have used the current economic crisis to launch an obvious publicity stunt,” said Rep. Brad Sherman, D-Sherman Oaks. “As Americans face tough economic times, we need a serious discussion of the issues.”

Bruce Ackerman, president and CEO of the Economic Alliance of the San Fernando Valley, said: “I don’t think it’s a reasonable request — and I would say that of any of the industry groups (seeking bailouts).

“I don’t think you can laugh any of these requests off. I sympathize with any industry that needs help,” Ackerman said, noting that the adult-entertainment industry employs thousands of people in the Valley. “But is it something the taxpayer should be burdened with?”

Now, this might be a surprise (or, you know not) but I’ve got to admit- I hand it to Flynt.  He gets his points across like no other in the entertainment industry.  He’s well known for the “Battle for the First” (self-coined term).  Now, as for the Girls Gone Wild guy, I get the impression he’s not trying to prove a point.  Flynt is well known for these stunts, always tongue in cheek.  He usually makes it point wonderfully in the end.  Joe Francis however is mostly known for being.. well a douche.

Kudos to the writer of this article, they crammed more jokes in there than most articles on Something Awful.  Perhaps he should be writing internet comedy…
