    When setting up the key words section of our web site for submission to
search engines, my son told me I needed to be sure and include to words :
Free and Sex. Because these are the most frequently searched word on the
net. SO here is my entrepreneurial proposal. We could set up a web site
called "Nude Butts" that required a $5 credit card fee before viewing the
pictures. Once paid they could view dozens of beautiful fully unclothed
butt-erflies. BUT who gets the money and how do we spend it? On admission to
sports events?
