Once again the weekend is here I can kick back and have a Zen-fest….clear the mind of the Kabuki that is politics……and NO I am NOT talking about Bachmann or even Palin……and on these two days….I kinda like the absurd.
In these days of economic uncertainty there are some signs that businesses, some at least, are doing pretty good….. alcohol consumption being the most obvious….when economic times are tough more people turn to drink to try and forget their problems……but whiskey is not the only business that is showing signs of progress………
Richard Lawson of CNBC recently had a story on one industry that is doing well…….
“At a time when unemployment is high and bank account balances are low, people are passing the time by getting busy,” Stefan Dallakian, the owner of Paris Intimates – an online sex toy distributor-told me. It’s estimated that the sex-toy business is a $15 billion industry. As the U.S. economy has worsened, Dallakian said that he has seen sales for sex toys skyrocket.
A steady 9 percent unemployment rate and growth in self-employment also means that Americans are spending more time at home. And, as the idea of a “Staycation” has only received more buzz lately, people continue to opt to stay home in order to save money on gas and lodging.
So if you are unemployed or under-employed maybe you should for go the local “meat market” and head to a sex store and get yourself a box labeled “Niki, The Greek Goddess”…..think of the money you could save….the only problem is to NOT smoke after sex if Niki gets touched by a lit cig…..she will fly around the room like a balloon……
