This is one of those stories that’s so friggin’ unbelievable that our initial inclination was to think it was a joke.
Unfortunately, the joke’s on us.
Here’s how CNSNews.com reports it:
“The National Institute of Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, part of the National Institutes of Health, will pay $2.6 million in U.S. tax dollars to train Chinese prostitutes to drink responsibly on the job. ‘The purpose of the project is to try and develop an intervention program targeting HIV risk and alcohol use,’ Dr. Xiaoming Li, the researcher conducting the program, told CNSNews.com. The grant, made last November, is one of several ‘international initiatives’ sponsored by NIH.”
We had a story a few months ago about the U.S. government purchasing Chinese condoms. Now we’re teaching Chinese hookers how to drink responsibly.
We don’t really care if the Chinese whores are drunk. Nor do we care if the Chinese drunks are whores.
What bothers us is that we’re all getting screwed by the drunken whores in Washington, DC.
