Bruce Springsteen said it’s hard to be a saint in the city, but dude didn’t know the half of it:
It’s even harder being a stripper in Houston.
The Harris County Sheriff’s Office arrested 18 boob-oriented entertainers during a May 29 raid at the St. James Cabaret, which is one of approximately 5,000 strip clubs to call itself “Houston’s ultimate gentlemen’s club.”
According the The Smoking Gun, which always provides excellent service in the stripper mugshot department, most of the women were busted for violating the Taliban-like “three-foot rule.”
(Not to be rude or anything, but with some of these women, you actually might not want to get closer than three feet…) – Craig Malisow
