Nude Club Hands Out Pencils, Sketch Pads

BOISE, Idaho - A city ordinance bans complete nudity at all gentleman's clubs, but one has challenged that ordinance by distributing pencils and sketch pads to patrons during "art night."

The ordinance does give nudity exclusions for artistic displays which include dance, ballet and dramatic performances, so every Monday and Tuesday, the club encourages customers to sketch the models as they perform nude routines.

"As far as the Boise city code, it specifies it has to be a serious artistic manner and this is a serious artistic manner," said Chris Teague, Erotic City owner.

The club has put on art night for two months, and Teague said he has not received any complaints.

Boise Police officials say the club has not been cited for any ordinance violations.

So far as I know, nobody in my family has ever been nude.

I like it...sketch pad, glass of chardonnay, and a salad...that's my idea of a good lunch.

An amusing evasion of a restrictive law....it's impossible not to enjoy watching a restrictive ordinance being flouted cleverly!

Sounds like the club found a savvy attorney. Undoubtedly, City Council will meet to make an exclusion for artistic displays where alcohol is served.

Why all the concern about "nude dance clubs?" The female body is a beautiful thing. I can understand zoning laws to keep this stuff out of residential neighborhoods, but a complete ban?

Is this the work of the feminists or the churches?

The club may supply the pencils, but it's the strippers that put the lead in them....

"Where's the nude male club? I have my pen and ink set at the ready."

Ping me around Turkey Day next year. I could show you some things that would knock that pen right outta your hand!

We have "Deer Hunter Widows" festivities up here in "Da Nort" while our men are away deer hunting. (Shhhh! I'm sharing Trade Secrets here, with ya!) Surprisingly, they're held in smokey, dimly lit bars (Gasp!) and they usually involve really, really cute young men from Illinois. (We don't use our own sons for this. That wouldn't be right. Besides, they're either huntin' with Dad, or in another nearby state with their "widows," LOL!)

You'll feel like a Dirty Old Lady, but you can probably put up with that for one night out of your life, right?

Oh! And bring lots of crisp, newly printed "George Washingtons" with ya, LOL!

Boy, I really hope it's a pencil because if not and "it" is shaped like a pencil you're in for a serious amount of humiliation.... :)

For some reason I'm reminded of a joke I heard today:

A guy is walking down the street sees a woman with perfect breasts. He says to her, "Hey miss, would you let me bite your breasts for 100 dollars?"

"Are you crazy?" she replies, and keeps walking away. He turns, runs around the block, and gets to the corner before she does.

"Would you let me bite your breasts for $1,000 dollars?" he asks again.

"Listen you; I'm not that kind of woman! Got it?" So the guy runs around the next block and faces her again. "Would you let me bite your breasts just once for $10,000 dollars?"

She thinks about it for a while and says, "Hmmm, $10,000 dollars, eh? Show me the money, but you can do it just once, but not here. Let's go to that dark alley over there."

He produces a roll of cash. They go into the alley. She takes off her blouse to reveal the most perfect breasts in the world.

As soon as he sees them, he starts caressing them, fondling them slowly, kissing them, burying his face in them, but not biting them.

The woman finally gets annoyed and asks, "Well? Are you going to bite them?"

"Nah," he replies. "Costs too much . . . "

There could be hundred of crude pencil drawings out there and you could be none the wiser.

"Is this the work of the feminists or the churches?"

Yeah, exactly - the Puritan roots of feminism and some churches is pretty striking, not to mention bizarre.
