Stimulus Watch : $800K Spent On Teaching African Men To Wash Their Junk

Well, at least the money wasn't wasted

This is how your government spends money when we are teetering on the brink of disaster.

If most of the men in the study wash their genitals after sex, are willing to do so after the study ends, and report that their partners accept the regimen, the researchers will develop another study to see if the “penile cleansing procedure” actually works to prevent HIV infections.

Just from a female perspective; how about having them wash before sex, too? What could it hurt, right?

And it's not clear what 'their partners' acceptance' refers to. It could mean that these sexual partners are going to learn to follow the same cleansing procedure, in which case we can safely assume these are gay couplings.

Or is it presumed that these are women, who for some reason might not approve of their partner's hygiene regimen?

Either way, and, most importantly, why should the US taxpayer give a rat's ass?
It's not like we aren't already sending an ass-ton of aid to African nations. We are.

My God, people, let's get serious here. People are out of work, and businesses are dying all around us; just ship them some instructional diagrams and a couple cases of Zest and let's be done!

If you go to the article, don't miss out on how the researchers explained why they were justified to receive tax money for this unproductive busy-work. Right at the end, there.
You'll like it. It's good.

Thanks to Krukke1.
