I was going to say it should have been "Retirement home for prostitutes helps them get back off their feet," but "back on their knees" is also acceptable.  Either way would have made it a HOTY candidate.

They have it in the US, too. Bimbo bakeries bought a lot of US brands.

Fun fact: Bimbo was once a descriptor for men.

I have a Mexican grocery store near me.  The produce is great but you have a choice of Bimbo or sweet mexican bread with icing in Easter Basket colors.
DO NOT buy the Bimbo!
The texture makes Wonder bread seem like "nuts and seeds" healthy bread.

3 demerits subby, you should have gone with 'helps prostitutes get off their feet again' or 'helps prostitutes get on their backs again.'

I see a few votes for on their knees up thread as well, which would also have sufficed. Way to mss a hell of an opportunity subs.

I disagree. Subby made a joke by way of suggestion, and it was well done. It's sad that you're too simple to appreciate it.

bighairyguy: Is there a problem with backsliding?


Yes, because it's an underground, black market activity, the providers normally have no other marketable skills, so they get trapped. It really needs to be like any other regulated profession. Out in the open, the people involved can form professional organizations and perhaps be able to help themselves obtain skills useful once their time in the market with their body is done. It'll also reduce human trafficking if we as a society can provide some hope other than grinding the people involved into the criminal justice system.

Prostitution and marijuana are two things I wouldn't partake of myself, but I don't see why either should be illegal in an enlightened modern society.

I'm not subby, but I assumed the joke was that as prostitutes they were on their knees/backs and now that they are retired they are getting on their feet again.  I like subby's version better than the alternatives given.

Carousel Beast: and perhaps be able to help themselves obtain skills useful once their time in the market with their body is done.


So the government should put a gun to my head and take money from me or borrow money from my kids so prostitutes can get free employment programs to have a different career? What about truck drivers being replaced by robotic cars? Assembly line workers being replaced? Is there any reason prostitutes can't save their money like everyone else? Their profession not only should be made legal but also be treated as better then everyone else, so important they deserve my tax money taken with a gun to my head?

Carousel Beast:

Ahh the Star Trek fallacy. Perhaps you think science is magic that has solved problems forever? Sorry, not yet, the effectiveness of antibiotics is failing, Careless people like you are the cause. The reason for those laws is because those STD's that crippled and maimed people before are coming back with a vengeance. Those diseases are already crossing out of Asia and into the US, making their way to that progressive city bars and tinder where you pick up partners. Who cares about STD's?

Well even if you don't care about yourself, some adults like the idea of having a family someday. Many STD's cause sterility, if they are lucky then they only have child birth problems and not problems for the children. People not so lucky, have disfigurement and many problems, from warts on their genitals, brain problems and heart problems. Many of the benign viruses you already have are implicated in health issues like heart disease. Oh, did you think that mostly benign cold sore herpes only causes sores on the outside? Sorry it seems herpes likes to chew up your big arteries as well and you're probably already spreading that to your boyfriends.

But sure, ignore all that. Keep on bug chasing and ruining life for the rest of us. Ignore that stuff your stupid sex ed teacher told you. Go vote for some candidate that supports bug chasing, it's progressive.

But seriously, if you think prostitution is the reason STD's are making a roaring comeback, you haven't been on a college campus lately. These kids think HPV has something to do with heating and cooling systems.

So, just so you're aware... This horrified reaction you have against retraining bookers, because other jobs in decline wouldn't get retrained as well...

You should look into the Department of Labor's extended unemployment programs. Shared Work and Training Benefits specifically.

Point 1, it already exists, and in fact is designed for all professions in decline. As long as you are smart enough to get retrained into a growing career instead of another declining one.
Point 2, it is in fact paid by the federal DOL mostly, but states can have incentives as well, and supplemental programs to the federal ones. Most of the money involved is paid by businesses, not individuals.
Point 3, Prostitutes would not qualify for a few reasons. a. They are usually either self employed or work for a pimp, which means since their employer isn't paying into the fund, they can't claim against it. b. Their profession is not in decline. c. Because their trade is currently illegal.

If we legalize and regulate proposition, including regular medical checkups for STDs, and start having legitimate business licenses and taxes, then it's safer, and unemployment and retraining would be handled by unemployment taxation that already exists for legitimate business.

I dunno. There's a cleaner at work who's within 2 years of that who looks like she escaped from a nursing home. Then again, we have a woman who is pushing 60 who looks better than half the ladies in their 40's. Amazing what healthy exercise plus not smoking 2 packs of smokes a day will do for your general appearance.
