Do You Have a Permit For That Nipple?

May 16, 2007 at 1:33 pm | Posted in social comment, stupidity | 5 Comments

I have a friend who used to be a cop in a city that shall remain nameless.  This city had a law, and I don’t know the exact wording but the gist of it was: no alcohol could be served in a club where the entertainers entire breasts were exposed.  Nipples had to be covered.  I guess the law was not very specific about the required method of coverage, because in every topless club in town the strippers painted latex on their nipples.  The latex was invisible and just by looking you couldn’t tell there was anything covering the nipple.

Now here is a good use of the taxpayers’ money.  Cops were actually assigned to what they called “nipple patrol” or “titty duty”.   A cop on nipple patrol would go into the strip clubs, and to ascertain whether or not the girls were in compliance with the law, the officer would require them to peel the latex off of their nipples.  I find this especially ironic because in order to determine whether or not the entertainers were obeying the law they were required, by an officer of the law, to break that law. 

Aside from being just too incredibly stupid for words the city in question, like many cities, had a tight budget and not enough officers to deal with things like violent crimes, murders, thefts…just little things that pale in comparison to to the negative effects exposed nipples inside of a strip club will have on society. 

I wonder if anyone with a latex allergy ever sued for discrimination.
