One answer to fiscal cliff: Find a sugar daddy

Still fearing a fall off the fiscal cliff? One Las Vegas-based company claims it has the solution, for women anyway: Sugar daddies.

I received this news release this morning from SeekingArrangement.com – and no, this is not from The Onion:

With 20 days left until the “Fiscal Cliff,” will you have your “parachute”?

Many are speculating on how to avoid yet another financial crisis, but no one has offered a solution, except one website. It’s actually quite simple: women can use their beauty to transcend the “Fiscal Cliff”.

According to Forbes, the average person will lose $2,000 to higher taxes starting January 3. Instead of feeling powerless, one million attractive women have already improved their financial situation through mutually beneficial relationships.

On SeekingArrangement.com, women earn an average of $3,000 from monthly allowances. Why count pennies? Instead of having to choose between celebrating the holidays this year or not drowning in debt next year, SeekingArrangement.com offers a solution: date rich men.

The website’s CEO and Founder, Brandon Wade, has even created a video with a special message to beautiful women across America: “A woman needs a rich man to be her financial ‘parachute’ in order to survive the ‘Fiscal Cliff’.”

SeekingArrangement.com is offering free premium memberships to attractive women, until the Fiscal Cliff is avoided.

Here’s the aforementioned video:

I’m not completely sure which part of this is most offensive – it presents so many options – but for the moment, I’ll go with “A woman needs a rich man to be her financial ‘parachute’ in order to survive the ‘Fiscal Cliff’.”
