Robot Stripper!

Somebody needs to call Alice in Human Resources. There's something not quite right about how employees are using the photocopier room, and I think the fax machine has been violated in some unspeakable way:

Storm Trooper Strip Tease!

Art Wars has arrived, and was initiated by a Storm Trooper Strip-Tease, as seen here, which makes me feel kinda weird during the scenes in Star Wars when Luke and Han steal some Stormtrooper armor. Anyhow, the art show is tied to a recent lawsuit over who actually owns the designs for the original Stormtrooper costume. Now that Ainsworth has rights to use it, Art Wars is applying the Stormtrooper art to some worthy purposes, like strippers and putting a pink suit of armor on the subway. Still, more entertaining than Episode I.

Adult Entertainment: Jobs!

People looking for quick money and a flexible schedule are discovering - hey! - getting naked is worth a lot of money! Oh, of course, when times are good, only whores do it, but in a recession, it's a way to save your family and pay for college! Finally, here's an article that gives a little context to this 'easy' career: "Once you decide to be an adult actress, it impacts your relationship with everyone," said Steven Hirsch, co-chairman of adult film giant Vivid Entertainment Group. "Once you make an adult film, it never goes away." Many of the people quoted in the articles, I think, would probably have been in adult entertainment anyway, but it's much easier for a news outlet to pleasantly frame a 'woman paying for her teaching degree by stripping at night' as a plucky entrepreneur figuring out how to get by, than a family of four with two incomes already and huge heating bills that needs help getting by after being pushed out of Social Services to keep budgets balanced. Expect, in about 15 years, a rush of conservative political candidates discredited because of a history of stripping and porn, with them dispensing excuse platitudes like, "oh, the economy was so bad, and I had to feed my family somehow!". Sadly, conservative morals are so flexible, they'd rather grant the excuse than to acknowledge that adult entertainment is worthwhile. Don't forget: a couple years back, teachers were fired for having summer job wearing a bikini and looking sexy and wearing a bikini on Howard Stern. You think any 'think-of-the-children' schoolboard is going to excuse this 'ho-ho, bad economy means get creative!' behavior in five years when the article at the top turns up in her 3rd-graders' search engines? People need to start accepting that adult entertainment isn't evil: it's a valid career for people with the skills and talent, and - horror - people change careers sometimes. Oh, don't count AIG on an employee's resume as a black mark, but stripper? Good god, call out the hounds.

Foxy Lady Job Fair!

Economy got you down, can't find a job, looking for an up-and-coming career where the money is good and the dress is casual? The Foxy Lady strip club is here to help: they're hiring, and they welcome inexperienced people, whose only job experience has been nurse, secretary, teacher, or any other kind of career which gets better when you add "naughty" in front of it.

Stripper = Oscar!

I had no idea: the Oscar usually goes to the stripper, or the prostitute, or the sexually-flawed female character. According to the article, it gives women a chance to really act, to fill a complex and nuanced role, which might tell you something about most of the women's roles. The stripper/hooker roles, though, are often positive, sympathetic roles, which is something the Oscars might have, but the real world seems to ignore.

Cop At Stripclub = Bad!

Sure, I'd get in trouble for stopping in at the strip-club while I'm supposed to be doing my rounds, but is it just "public relations" if a cop stops by? His bosses don't think so, but I'd like to think that it's not the 'stopping by' part that's the problem. If he stopped in an average bar, without drinking or screwing around, I bet he'd be fine. If he stops in at the grocery store to keep an eye out for criminals, no problem. Naked boobies? That's a suspendin'.
