When Missouri's ban on nude dancing went into effect last year, the assumption was that the new laws would keep us safe from all those boobs that we'd been forced to look at for so long. But as far as I can tell, the only people getting in trouble so far are male strippers -- and only in St. Joseph.
I don't know if we have any readers who used to live in St. Jo, but if we do, could you please go into the comment section and tell me what the feelings are on a chiseled male torso up there? Is it jealousy? Is that it, you paunchy bastards?
Last week, St. Joseph police busted a Chippendales performance at the Legends Sports Bar, citing the adult entertainment laws. According to the St. Joseph News-Press, four dancers were issued summonses because they didn't have an adult
entertainer's license, and one was issued a summons for
not having a business license. The on-duty manager -- who wasn't dancing naked or even semi-naked -- was arrested for
possible violation of the Missouri laws.
No charges have been filed, yet.
As I said earlier, St. Joseph seems to hate male dancers. The only other time I've heard of these laws being enforced was in September of last year, when the "Ultimate Vegas Hunk Experience" resulted in two arrests at Blondie's nightclub. In that case, the cops held an actual undercover sting operation, and two female officers supposedly saw a ball, or something.
Missouri, you are so fucking weird.
