Now that's a stimulus plan - Part Deux

In May, Pfizer announced that it would provide free Viagra to men who lost their jobs and health insurance. I posted on that bit of news mostly because I thought it was funny to call that program a "stimulus plan." Juvenile, I know. What can I say?

Now comes news that the government's actual stimulus plan is full of spending on sex research. Examples cited in the New York Post include studies on "barriers to correct condom use," adolescent "hookups," and "drug use as a sex enhancer." (Link to story here.)

Aren't you all glad that spending billions of dollars that we don't have to fund vital government functions like these?
