Dispatches from the Creation Wars

Bored Vice Cops

From the “cops that have nothing better to do with their time” department comes this story from Hillsborough County, Florida. The Sheriff’s department launched a major investigation into allegations that strippers in the area were getting too close to customers during lap dances. $6000 and 92 lapdances later, they concluded that, sure enough, they were getting too close. This won Keith Olbermann’s Worst Person in the World award on Tuesday. As always, I am reminded of Doug Stanhope’s statement about vice cops: their only job is to fuck up the party.

    I’m sure I’ve heard of a pretty bad waste of public money and time recently, but I can’t remember it off the top of my head. I’m just commenting because I think it’s weird that this showed up under September 28th.

    Given the nature of the investigation, I’ve got a funny feeling that “bored” isn’t a very accurate description…

    I’m sorry, but I’ll have to check out the dancers personally, before deciding the money was wasted. ;-)

    Um, this is quite hilarious.

    A couple of years ago we saw, on German TV, a documentary about Lost Vegas, that included a bit of commentary about female strippers and pole dancers. The documentarian asked the women what they were thinking about as they were going through their acts–which were obviously meant to tittilate (so to speak) their male audiences.

    What were they thinking about? Their hair. Their nails. What they were going to do after they got off that night. What were they not thinking about? The men, whom they were supposedly tittilating.

    The documentary was hilarious. And it is doubtful that you’ll see it on American TV.

    Wow. They got paid to do that? Maybe I shoulda been a vice cop…. [/sarcasm]

    hey, raj – The only reason you won’t see it on American TV is that the old Trio cable channel got eaten up by Bravo!
