I love how her sticker says "Sluts Unite"

It's funny how certain laws in Europe operate with respect to prostitutes...

For example, in Germany, your unemployment benefits can be cut off if a job is available but you refuse to take it. Since prostitution is now legal there, some unemployed German women have been informed that they must accept the job of prostitute (since they haven't found any other job) or lose their benefits.

I don't know about you, but I think that's really messed up.

Well, she is a prosititute--that probably explains how she's different.

I'm sure to know her is to love her.

Its the logical conclusion to the line of reasoning. Its either have that or

1) No unemployment.
2) Unemployment for people who just don't want to work.
3) No Prostitution.

Take your pick.

On the picture. I would say she is the archetypical "french whore".

Definitely a 3 bag job. (one for her, one for you, and one for the dog so he doesn't have to watch either.)

So I take it they can't smell, either?

She looks like you can smell her from a mile (or 1.6 kilometers ;)) away.
Blind lonely French men must take solace where they can find it. Which, I guess, is sad.

Here's just one of many articles on the subject... Google on "Germany prostitute unemployment" for more.
Hmmmm ... from that article ...

"The government had considered making brothels an exception on moral grounds, but decided that it would be too difficult to distinguish them from bars."

Really?

It makes sense, since it's considered a normal job. On the other hand, it's perhaps one type of job where they make an exception.

And the "lady" in the OP looks like she's been beaten repeatedly with the Ugly Stick.

Damn it! I was just about to post the same quote!

However, I now am keenly interested in visiting German bars. ;)

The article doesn't give any indication, however, of how often German women are actually deprived of benefits for refusing to work as prostitutes. Only offers this tidbit:

"Now that prostitution is no longer considered by the law to be immoral, there is really nothing but the goodwill of the job centres to stop them from pushing women into jobs they don't want to do."

I'm scared to think what you'd get if you just asked for "a cold one". But "something that goes down easy" might not be so bad.

Gots to learn me some German....
