Pork, the other white lie

October 2, 2008

Sorry – I can’t contain myself.  Post of “Substance” coming.  Avert your eyes!

From the get-go I have questioned the need for a Congressional Bailout of this fiscal catastrophe.  Are they going to help my small-potato home-owning friends who have taken it straight up their sewer main with the sharp drop in their home’s value?  Noooooo. 

But here are some Pork-tacular recipients of some of that $700 billion buckeroos:

  • * Manufacturers of kids’ wooden arrows – $6 million. (What. The. Fuck??)
  • * Puerto Rican and Virgin Is- lands rum producers – $192 million.
  • * Wool research.
  • * Auto-racing tracks – $128 million.
  • * Corporations operating in American Samoa – $33 million.
  • * Small- to medium-budget film and television productions – $10 million.


  1. So in short if you’re an American-Samoan pirate who wears wooly jumpers, is a racing driver and has his own TV show similar to ‘The Osbornes’ then you’re quids in!

  2. HAHAHAHA I guess you could look at it that way. You silly Brit, you!

    Wooly jumpers… I’ll be laughing at that phrase for a few hours, I think. 😛
