Texas housewife busted for selling…vibrators!

Your tax dollars at work in George W.’s Texas:

A Texas housewife is in big trouble with the law for selling a vibrator to a pair of undercover cops, and the Brisbane vibrator company she works for says Texas is an “antiquated place” with more than its share of “prudes.”

Joanne Webb, a former fifth-grade teacher and mother of three, was in a county court in Cleburne, Texas, on Monday to answer obscenity charges for selling the vibrator to undercover narcotics officers posing as a dysfunctional married couple in search of a sex aid.

Webb, a saleswoman for Passion Parties of Brisbane, faces a year in jail and a $4,000 fine if convicted.

“What I did was not obscene,” Webb said. “”What’s obscene is that the government is taking action about what we do in our bedrooms.”

Once again, I can only wonder what the cops were thinking. This sort of thing only serves to make them look like buffoons. And now, sales for Passion Parties’ vibrators are sure to skyrocket with all the free publicity.

The question is: why are the under-cover narcotics officers looking for sex toys when they are supposed to look for drugs?

Good question. They shouldn’t be looking for drugs orsex toys, if you ask me — but then, no one asked me.
