The Times newspaper has surprised us by signing up with the adult porn industry in a bid to make its Internet ventures pay. The paper said last week that it was considering different content-charging models and has since been carefully watched by other media organisations, keen to recoup some of their Internet investment.

At least that's what we assume has happened following this weekend's publication of a guide to owning and buying shares that linked to several organisations at the bottom. In between links to the FSA, SEC etc etc came the well-known porn site www.stockdetective.com.

Stock Detective points to the less-than-savoury XXXoffers.com, which unsurprisingly has some X-rated offers to make to you. Triple-X in fact. Gang bang models, Fatty Fatty, Upskirt teenies and the classic Chicks got dicks are all there for Times readers' amusement.

Asked about their new alliance, a spokesman for the paper said: "Oh shit" and hung up.

We don't know quite what to make of this, although one cynic did suggest that the paper had instead meant to link to stock-based information site Stock Detective, based, of course at www.stockdr.com.

Decide for yourself here. Of get some Fatty Fatty action here. ®
