OINK, OINK!

The federal government is spending $423,500 to find out why men don't like to wear condoms, a project government watchdogs say is a nearly-half-a-million-dollar waste of taxpayer money.

Researchers at Indiana University's Kinsey Institute, with funding from the National Institutes of Health, are investigating why "young, heterosexual adult men" have problems using condoms. The study will include "skill-based intervention" to teach grown men how to use protection.

One can only wonder about how many othe half million dollar studies like this one we are paying for.
I have a suggestion. Lets spend a half million dollars on a study to determine why our elected reps just can't seem to understand that when we are hurting for cash that we shouldn't be wasting it.

Maybe next time they'll do a study on how beer goggles work.

More to the point -- I wonder why the Kinsey Institute is getting its palm greased (and not that way, you dirty minded C-D)
