In a cover story that's hilariously titled "SWEET CHARITY," the New York Post has discovered that some New York strip clubs have ATMs that dispense cash for welfare recipients. Furthermore, the machines can be found at liquor stores, bars, hookah parlors and naughty video shops. Because all of these things are necessities.

Welfare recipients are eligible for $158 to $400 monthly. The Post has learned recipients have used their EBT cards to make cash withdrawals at Club 11 and Club Heat in the Bronx, Hank's Saloon in BrooklynBlue Door Video in the East Village, SoHo lounge The Anchor and TriBeCa's Patriot Saloon.

Get your thrills, no judgement at all over here, but get your priorities straight first.
