How many floozies live at this address?
Alert readers of this blog will recall my complaints about the U.S. Census last year.
I wrote about their heavy-handed approach, their fixation that my single-family dwelling was actually housing countless lodgers, and their surprise visits looking for an Apartment 2 and Apartment 3 somewhere in my home.
Also, I wasn’t too crazy about the census question asking whether I spend some of my time living in prison instead of here. Shouldn’t the government already KNOW who lives in prison?
But let’s not dwell on that again until 2020. Instead, let’s look at how another country handles it. Hungary, for instance.
It turns out, in Hungary they don’t even WANT to visit every house, kicking in doors and looking for hidden apartments. No, they’re very happy if you’d just fill out the form online. And, to get your attention, they have created a provocative video commercial featuring a topless young woman in red underwear and lacy black stockings, holding a whip.
An official explained to us that they “want to reach the younger generation as well,” which I guess in Hungary is the topless red lingerie and whip generation.
U.S. Census folks, take note. This is a nice way to treat citizens, and you should give it a try.
BTW, if a topless woman with a whip and red lingerie answers the door at my place, it will be that shameless hussy from Apartment 3.
