A new word for your vocabulary: The Succubus Package
Everyone has their own pet name for the recent 700-billion-dollar stimulus package. I’ve heard Porkulus, Spendulus, Crapulus, etc.
Personally, I call it the Succubus Package.
A Succubus (plural succubi) is a demon who takes the form of a highly attractive woman to seduce men, in their dreams to have according to the medieval European legend. Their male counterpart is the incubus. They draw energy from the men to sustain themselves, often until the point of exhaustion or death of the victim.
The package lured everyone in with these grandiose promises of prosperity and will simply suck everyone dry.
So here you go, America……feel free to call it The Succubus Package.
