Hi golfwaymore,

Congrats on your dinner on the Fool.

You said
As I've said in jest many times, were investing in brothels legal, I'd probably be the first to pony up. <grin>

Well I suggest that you pony up :-)

Australian brothel trades on stock exchange

Shares in a brothel have almost doubled in value after it began trading on the Australian Stock Exchange.

The Daily Planet, the country's first publicly listed brothel, received some promotional help from former Hollywood madam Heidi Fleiss.

"How can you go wrong with sex?" said Fleiss, while visiting Melbourne for the launch.

Shares at The Daily Planet were offered at A$0.50 cents each, and opened 40% higher at A$0.70. By late trading, shares were up 90% to A$0.95.
