There's always a silver lining!

Uganda tries nude dancing as tourist draw
With its gorilla-watching industry in a severe slump, Uganda is going to try to generate tourist revenue through the licensing of nude dancers.
They're such a rare commodity! That'll get the tourists thronging the place. But what happened to the gorilla watching?
Uganda's tourist industry had relied heavily on gorilla-watching tours in the forest along the country's western border. But, the industry was dealt a severe blow in 1999 when eight foreign tourists and a park ranger were killed by Rwandan rebels from the neighboring Democratic Republic of Congo.
That'll do it every time.
