Springfield's strip clubs -- or, as our friend George Spankmeister calls them, "gentlemen's clubs" -- will never be mistaken for the fictional joints portrayed on shows like "CSI." For starters, the local crime lab does not employ any former strippers (so far as we know), and if it did, none of them would look like Marg Helgenberger.
But it is nice to know that even in sunny Florida, strippers have a decidedly skanky look. The Smoking Gun has a report on 15 -- count 'em, 15! -- strippers busted "on a variety of criminal charges, including prostitution and exposure of a sexual organ."
Five clubs were busted over lunchtime this week, including Bare Assets, Lollipops, Extasy, Brass Flamingo, and Calendar Girls. Cops say the clubs were packed at noon, and not because of any delicious lunchtime special.
Our favorite stripper has to be this one. TLC should hire her to replace the dearly departed Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes.
