Why is this woman smiling?
An SEC accountant attempted to access porn websites 1,800 times in a two-week period and had 600 pornographic images on her computer hard drive.
That's from ABC's story, SEC Pornography Problem. This expose reveals that the Securities and Exchange Commission was distracted by porn in 2008, when they should have been warning us that our financial world was melting.
I know there are some, perhaps even many, who are outraged. So why does this amuse me?
• It's usually funny when sex makes people act stupid. And somehow horny federal accountants seem especially humorous.
• It says she "attempted" to access the website, which implies she failed. This makes it even more funny/stupid.
• The accountant is a woman, which means we have reached equality when it comes to our appetite for smut.
