The Birthday Stripper and the Law

Greetings. This one's from the "Jeez, spend a few bucks and buy a digital camera" file.

A Nashville woman (and her husband, and others) have been charged with various criminal offenses after she hired a stripper to perform at her 16-year-old's birthday party.

"No minors permitted in adult establishments," insist the police, who presumably had plenty of spare time to devote to this critical case.

Says the Mom, "It didn't harm him... Who are they to tell me what I can and can't show to my own children?"

Ah hah! Nobody expects the Spanish Inquisition!

Of course, her big mistake was trying to get the photos developed down at the local drugstore (apparently she wasn't aware that photo developers have become effectively an arm of both the morality squad and the Department of Homeland Security).

OK, maybe a stripper for that group wasn't the brainiest of ideas. But given the reaction, next it'll be life in Guantanamo if an old copy of Playboy falls into the wrong hands.
