‘Stimulus’ Funds Spent to Teach African Men How to Wash Their Giggle Sticks

The “stimulus” sham has been measured with virtually unquantifiable terms, including “jobs created,” “jobs saved” and the oh-so-hopey-changey “lives touched” — now Team Obama can add another category: johnsons touched:

(CNSNews.com) – The National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH), a division of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), spent $823,200 of economic stimulus funds in 2009 on a study by a UCLA research team to teach uncircumcised African men how to wash their genitals after having sex.

The genitalia-washing program is part of a larger $12-million UCLA study examining how to better encourage Africans to undergo voluntary HIV testing and counseling – however, only the penis-washing study received money from the 2009 economic stimulus law. The washing portion of the study is set to end in 2011.

Moonbattery has a sign for this very important project:


A Northwestern University professor received $700,000 in “stimulus” funds to develop a computer software that tells jokes — which is simply more redundant waste. The joke is the stimulus.
