According to an article in the occasionally dubious New York Post, once well-paid women the city over are losing their jobs to the recession, and taking jobs as strippers, exotic dancers, and “massage girls.” Real estate workers are particularly hard hit, according to club owners. Many of these women are reporting greatly increased incomes compared to what they were making at their banking, real estate, or other professional jobs.
Now while I’m sure you all agree with me that it is grossly unfair that these women should be given cushy pole-dancing jobs while their male ex-bosses are lucky to be the new fry cooks at McDonald’s, I’d like to make a different observation. Traffic into these clubs is making a sharp increase, due to people’s need to find a place to escape… an island of fantasy amid the dark and dismal realities we all now face. I would like to observe that this comic offers just as much escapism as any Manhattan strip club, and at a much more reasonable price.
So guys, whenever you see something you like here, send me a dollar in the post. Ladies, if you’ve recently lost your jobs, come hang out naked at my house instead of a strip club, and I’ll pay you from the singles I get in the mail. Absolutely everyone wins!
