ive been meaning to make work-related comics forever, so enjoy some choice movie title bastardizations.
(these all actually, seriously, happened, with no humor or awareness on the part of the customer at the time as far as I could tell. so, yes, someone actually asked for a ticket to “Detergent” with a straight face.)
Like seriously, why isn’t pole dancing an olympic sport? This is freakin gymnastics. This is strength and skill. This is not sexual whatsoever. Why does pole dancing have to be so stigmatised as a sexual thing that only strippers do? I have great respect for all people who can pull this off. This is art and beauty right here.
HEY FUN FACT: pole dancing is known as something strippers do because strippers invented it. And that’s okay! It’s okay to have respect for strippers and the hard work they put into what they do! Let’s stop trying to take the stripper part out of pole dancing so upperclass white girls can do it without being ~stigmatized~ because god forbid women be sexual.
It’s fine to respect strippers but it’s false to say that strippers invented pole dancing. Pole dancing or variations Thereof date back thousands of years back to countries like india and china. Pole dancing took off in the United States during the 1920s when circus performers would use it to entertain audiences (mostly male) they were called Hoochie Coochie dancers. It was not until the 1980s that pole dancing was adopted by strippers to add on to their show.
First and foremost pole dancing has been used by many people in many countries for the sake of building stamina, to show off artistic skill, or to simply entertain audiences. So no strippers did not invent pole dancing, but they didn’t desecrate it either.
Why are guys so obsessed with their dicks? We’ll be like “Mothers have the right to breastfeed their baby in public!” And without fail, dudes chime in with, “Does that mean I can pull my dick out in public? Can I urinate in public?” Chill the fuck out. This isn’t about your dick. You are already allowed to have your nipples out in public, sit the fuck down.
