An enterprising US strip club owner has failed to get around local anti-nudity laws by issuing his customers with sketch pads for special "art nights".
Police in Boise, Idaho, cited three dancers at the Erotic City club for violating the city's rules.

The law allows full nudity only if the art has "serious artistic merit", a police spokesman said.

But city officials decided the club's customers were not focused on art, the police said.

Couldn't be DS, no one reads his posts so you wouldn't remember him saying that.

It was Chris. Chris worked as a bouncer for a time. Some of those clubs he worked were strip clubs, AIR.

HK is just jealous because Vincent and Mr. G both read my posts. They don't understand them, of course, but they read them. HK just cannot stand Vincent ever doing something that isn't directly connected with her. The jealous little bounty hunter trap.

It was Chris and I that talked about working around or being friends with strippers. We had very different takes about most things involving that lifestyle, IIRC. I probably don't RC, but since no one agrees with me, it's always safe for me to say we disagreed about something. ;)

That's me and Lurker talking.
And Lurker and Walrus talking.
And Chris and Walrus talking.
And Chris and myself.
And you.

well i don't really do etchings, but no it's not a dirty word

i think 'would you like to see my etchings?' was supposed to be the old-fashioned form of 'would you like to come in for a coffee?'

Everything is art, just ask the artists. And I'm sure the guys present were very focused.

well it's true, although we can all see the obvious attempt to circumvent the law by this guy, it's a dark day when a judge is deciding if something has artistic merit or not

although of course the history of censorship is litered with such things

Unfortunately, that's very true. Judges are often the ones who are deciding if something is art, or has enough artistic merit to overcome its "obscene" or "heretical" nature. So sad.
