Furloughed government employees spent a lot of time watching porn.

The good news is, thanks to a provision in the shutdown agreement, non-essential federal workers who found themselves jobless during the shutdown will all be given back pay for the time  spent stimulating…um…the economy.

When times are tough many Americans turn to their faith, family or friends to get them through.

Some may also turn to pornography.

The world’s most popular porn site says web traffic spiked during the partial government shutdown.

The pornhub.com press release, which is safe for work, says “it’s as if Bill Clinton was back in office.”

Here’s how the excited porn purveyor put it: “Country wide there has been an increase of 4.5%, while the states with the highest spikes have been Nevada (up 42%), Oklahama (up 21%), and Florida (up 14%). Only Missouri (nicknamed the ’show me state’) is down 4.5%. … Maybe they’re providing all the new content instead of viewing it!”

Actually, if you think about it, the last, Gingrich-led shutdown was what led to the Lewinsky affair, as a certain intern in a blue dress rose to prominence when she went out to grab pizza for a bunch of negotiating White House officials looking at a late night. At least, that’s the story anyway.
