Hurricane Relief?

Ok, you've lost all you have, house is covered in mold, you have no money...
Hurricane Katrina destroyed all you have left...

FEMA comes along (finally) and hands out debit cards with $2,000 in cash available to use as you see fit. Where do you go? The Strip Club of course!

From WorldNetDaily:
On the heels of a report earlier this week that Atlanta area Katrina victims were using $2,000 debit cards to purchase luxury items like Louis Vuitton handbags, Houston police yesterday discovered the cards, provided by FEMA and the Red Cross, being used at local strip clubs.

The Houston Police Department just formed a task force to investigate the abuse of the cards, which were distributed to thousands of Katrina hurricane victims to provide for necessities, such as food, clothing and toiletries. On the first day, the police found the cards being used to buy beer while ogling exotic dancers.

According to a report by KPRC, Channel 2, in Houston, a manager at Caligula XXI Gentlemen's Club said he has seen at least one debit card used at his club. A bartender at Baby Dolls, identified only as "Abby," said she has seen many of the cards used at her establishment.

"A lot of customers have been coming in from Louisiana and they've been real happy about the $1.75 beers and they're really nice," she said.
Yeah, I'd be real nice too if I had a free 2 grand to blow on strippers! Where exactly to you swipe a debit card on a stripper? Well, I can think of a couple places but... Nevermind... where do you punch your pin # and where does your reciept come out?

-Have Breakfast at Basil's, buy swag with your debit cards at Dr Phat Tony's!

LOL I figured it out... one of 2 things:

1. They're snagging them while they sleep... hey most people still don't have any shelter, it's like having the front door unlocked.

2. (my wittier and probably more feasible choice) "hey mister, I don't have a car since it was taken by the hurricane. I have this card to buy groceries with. Could you go some where and get us basic needs like toilet paper, bread and clean water to drink?"

"Sure lady, but see here... I've got some of them 'needs' too. Hows about you give me the card so I can help with your shoppin' and I can get some things that'll satisfy my needs too"

*insert icky 'worst-slime-ball-line-ever-heard' feeling crawling all over my skin*

I thought the cards couldn't be used for booze? Floozies maybe, but not alcohol.

Jaden we can only hope that it's not being used like this by the victims of the hurricane, but in truth these people were poor for a reason. This is just more proof of decisions creating poverty.

That last part was gross, Josh!

Sorry baby, you know it's all in fun!

So Josh,
You said you knew a couple places to swipe a stripper? Any of them near Mass?

How funny..
I'm sure it was some innocent mistake...
(probably drunks who thought it was a Bourbon Street, Madie Gras.)...hey.

Insol: I'm sure with enough scotch you could bribe Teddy to strip for ya...
