What a bunch of dicks: $900,000 in grants to study penis size in the gay community

by editor on July 20, 2011

The American government has wasted your hardearned tax dollars on some pretty stupid stuff, but the length and girth of this one tops them all.

The Daily Mail UK reveals the hard facts about how you’re getting screwed. Or at least how someone’s getting screwed:

anthony-weiner-underwear

Another completely transparent excuse to show Anthony Weiner's weiner again

As the country plunges further into debt and with the small task of securing a multi-trillion dollar deal still on the cards, it has emerged that thousands of tax dollars were wasted on a study examining the correlation between a gay man’s penis size and his sex life. 

The study was among several backed by the National Institutes of Health who granted almost $900,000 in one year on this and other studies.

We don’t even want to know what the other studies may have been. We’re still reeling over this one.

It has not been ascertained how much of the $900,000 grant went to he 2009 report, called The Association Between Penis Size and Sexual Health Among Men Who Have Sex with Men, but the coalition release stated that at least $9.4 million went to a ten-year study that included the penis-size research.

According to Fox, the grant was administered by NIH’s National Institute on Drug Abuse, and went first to a group called Public Health Solutions and a researcher with the National Development and Research Institutes before going to individual researchers.

It compiled data from a survey of more than one thousand gay and bisexual men at events in New York City held for the gay community.

And now, let’s conclude with the highlight of the story.

Those who participated were given a free movie voucher.

And if they were lucky, they found Pee Wee Herman in the theater of their choice demonstrating the results of the survey.

Size matters… these people have brains the size of a cockroach’s (with the instincts to match) and it shows.

What did you expect from the Party of Weiners?

If we’re lucky the Institute of Health will calculate how much money it will take to buy enough KY to give to the tax-payers for the assf*cking we are taking.

Exactly. This has NO IMPORTANCE whatsoever… What do I care about gay men’s penis sizes? Why would a gay man care even?

The important thing here is this. Even if a gay man DOES care about penis size, of what importance is this to US? The people who are paying for this?

No importance whatsoever to anyone at any point in time and for any reason. Complete waste of money. This people know someone or are related to someone in govt and had no jobs and this is what they got. Ugh…

“So, what do you do for a living?”

“Oh, I’m doing a study on penis size in the gay community.”

“Uh, OK. So nice to have met you. I gotta go now.”

My sources in DC tell me it was a study commissioned by Barney Franks to determine who were the biggest pricks, his buddies on the street or his buddies in congress.

What would be far more useful would be a study of the relationship between government spending and the blood pressure of the average taxpayer.

I’m telling you, this crap just gets better and better and we’re right in the middle of it. We should be studying the correlation between d*** size and girth to ass stupid legislation emanating from Hooterville, DC!

You know how sometimes you’ll take a day off work to go to the doctor and there’s lots of traffic on the roads and you see people milling around on the sidewalks and you think, “Why aren’t any of these people at work? What do they do for a living that they don’t have to be at work? Why are there so many damn people who don’t appear to be doing anything?”

Well, those are the “Government Grant Money People” … they get $900,000 to do a “one-year study” that takes about ten minutes of internet surfing. Then for the rest of the year they live a life of leisure spending your tax dollars.

Classic example of why there needs to be spending cuts before there is even the first discussion on raising the debt ceiling.

Typical Liberals, they tell you what to do with your dick, how to use your dick and now they want to know what size it is. Do all liberals look at the world from Knee level? It appears liberals have a dick fetish. If they would stop behaving like Anthony Weiner perhaps they could worry about the roads, economy, the unemployed, you know little thinhgs like that, instead of their own little things.

Imagine being a new graduate student looking to participate in a study so you can earn a little extra money. You see a notice on the university web site, offering summer wages for support work in a study funded by the federal government. You apply and get hired. You’re thrilled. You can hardly believe your good luck. Then you show up for work the first day and discover you’ll be spending the summer measuring penises.

Only in America.

If McConnell caves to Harry Reid & the Dems, something should be pounded in his “keister”. But I’m not sure “Laura Ingaham’s schlong” is a realistic choice for that. A. She does’nt look like a tranny, & B. Maybe her foot should be there instead, if it happens.
