an announcement that launched a thousand unprintable puns, 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.

Francis insisted in a phone interview that this is no joke or publicity stunt, though his tone suggested otherwise.
“The government’s handing out money to the auto industry,” Francis, producer of the “Girls Gone Wild” video series, said on the phone from his Santa Monica office. “Why shouldn’t it hand some to an industry the nation could not live without?” ...

Sadly, there are very good arguments one can put forth on the apparent economic value of the porn industry. It is likely that the technology that this ministry's web site is based on would not be nearly as advanced as it currently is if it were not for the demand of pornography in other parts of the world.
