Boobs and Stuff

Hey, never say we don't give the people what they want. Our friend Lefty takes note of a decision by a federal judge in Florida ruling anti-nudity laws unconstitutional, and analyzes the decision's impact on local establishments like Topper's and Chelsea's.

Read all about it here, and if Lefty's correct, we might just be moving AthPo Global HQ to that corner table at Chelsea's. Don't act like you don't know which one we're talking about.

Yeah for boobies!

Now we just have to get Rothman or somebody to challenge the ordinance so we can get those silly little nipple-covers off (don't act like you don't know what I'm talking about either).

Those nipple covers are really retarded. What is wrong with seeing a nipple? I mean, my own nipples aren't that sexy, but I consider myself to be a fan of nipples belonging to the fairer sex. All these puritanical laws really bother me.

Nipple covers aren't going to stop anyone from going to a strip joint, but they are going to stop people from enjoying the experience as much as they possibly can.

I am a big proponent of stippers rights because a lot of strippers are putting themselves through school to become doctors and lawyers, or so they tell me. I'm not a huge fan of lawyers, but hot lawyers would make jury duty a lot more interesting if I were actually eligble to be called up for jury duty.

Nipple covers stopped me from going to strip clubs. After all, if you think about it, you're paying a huge cover charge and inflated drink prices just to see something you can catch on "Wild On," or the televised Howard Stern show on E! (Exclamation point for trademark correctness, not to convey excitement or emphasis.)

I wasn't paying cover when I would go because my friend was bartending, but I think that paying cover for strip clubs sucks. They should just be happy with me drinking expensive beers.

So are anti-prostitution laws...

Oh come on...you're comparing prostitution laws with a silly requirement that a stripper cover up her nipples!?

This situation is emblematic of America's views on sex in general. We're absolutely obsessed with it, to the point that we have two strip clubs in this small town, even though they aren't allowed to exhibit "nudity". Yet we're also, simultaneously and paradoxically, puritanical to the point that we can't allow "nudity" in the same establishment as alcohol; that would just be too much sin at once.
