Feds drop $10K on pole dance lessons for telephone linemen

Pole Dancing LinewomanYour tax dollars hard at work…

Despite the Obama Administration’s blaming Congressional Republicans for seemingly every fiscal dilemma real or imagined, the federal government somehow managed to find thousands of dollars to teach telephone line repairmen how to perform stripper-style pole dancing. The National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) has granted an Austin, Texas dance company $10,000 for this vital program.

As described by Forklift Danceworks of Austin:

This dance will be a massive outdoor production — a set of 20 utility poles, bucket trucks weaving in and out, cranes extending 100+ feet into the air, and 50+ linemen climbing and performing aesthetically sculpted choreography…

But Not Enough for White House Tours…

Largely ignored by the national media but covered by Examiner.com, in spite of the sequestration, the Obama Administration scraped together enough of the taxpayers money for the following:

  • $152,500 bestowed upon George Washington University to conduct voice therapy for transsexuals.
  • $384,949 for Yale University to study the length of duck penises.
