It's rough out there, friends. Unemployment is high. Banks are taking a harder stance on foreclosures. And something else that's really crappy. But America's happiest people, swingers (don't argue with me about this), are really starting to feel the pinch too.
As you may imagine, some amount of "swapping" and "play" takes place amongst people who really don't really care about money. Some don't have kids, some have grown kids, some are so poor that the only thing they can do for entertainment is bang each other's spouses and some just realize that life is so miserably short that between-the-sheet variety is the only way to prevent yourself from eating a 45 caliber taco. Not people you'd expect to be dissuaded by a little thing like a saggy Dow, a bummer real estate market or a banana in the tailpipe of employment.

Lawsuit Proves Chicago Couple Aren't Swingers
As broken up as I am about swingers clubs struggling, I am sick about this next story. Per the Huffington Post, a woman in Illinois allegedly "stiffed" the staff of Joe's Crab Shack on both bill and tip and made a run for it. The law was alerted to her dining-and-dashing and soon arrived. The allegedly intoxicated woman informed the constabulary that her money was at home and she'd pay the bill (though no word about her planned gratuity). When she arrived home, she went for her bedroom and produced a "clear, rigid feminine pleasure device" and brandished toward one of the officers. The quick-thinking lawman disarmed the woman before getting a whacking his coworkers would never let him live down. This goes back to my long-standing belief that dildos AND the Bible are not weapons. Also, I don't like the idea of serving crab so far inland unless they get good crabs from Lake Michigan. 6 Sex Toys That Scare Us
