What can I get for $20?

An email from sister of PittGirl (the Tina Fey one) who now lives in Texas:

I’ve been reading on the national news about the aunt in Donora, PA who “rented” two hookers for $80 for her 12-year-old nephew. (I’m assuming one only rents hookers or parts of hookers and is not actually able to buy a hooker.)

Are you embarrassed that Pittsburgh-area hookers are so cheap? Really, what the hell kind of hooker only charges $40? Of course, I’m assuming that each charged an equal amount, but I guess one could be a $20 hooker (who likely sucks…and not in a good way) and the other a $60 hooker.

Either way, I’d shoot myself if I had to have sex so cheaply. I bet that even here in the sticks our hookers get more than that. Maybe I don’t want to move to the Burgh after all…your workforce is way underpaid.

Told you she was witty.

Also? My faith in the human race took a little ding with this here story.

    That must have been Lolita and Tanqa-Ray. They typically run $50 each, or 2 for $80.

    I hope you made some distinctions concerning Donora.

    Have you ever been to Donora? It’s one of the only towns I’ve ever heard of in which a McDonald’s closes because of lack of business.

    Alright Chris Briem and Mike Madison, drop the cupcakes and start writing about the atrocious state of prostitution wages in Pittsburgh!

    Maybe the hookers were charging the “kids” rate versus the adult rate.

    Donora is NOT the Burgh…just so you know.

    I don’t know what the going rate is but the television show COPS does a hooker sting pretty regularly and the prostitutes sometimes charge $20 or 30 dollars.

    Maybe they had Jeeters from Kennywood…you must be this tall to ride this ride….and since he wasnt…$20

    OR…it could have been their version of student rush too…show your Jr High ID and its only $20

    I can’t imagine what quality of hookers you can find in Donora, but just thinking about it makes me want to go bathe myself in Clorox.

    How does your incredibly hot sister know the going rate for hookers in her area???
    Inquiring minds want to know.
