“But it’s the pelvic thrust that really drives you insane”

Okay, so they probably weren’t doing the Time Warp, but still, what else can one think?

A troupe of Chippendales dancers won’t face criminal charges for a West Texas performance featuring “pelvic thrusts” that prompted police to shut down the show and jail the dancers.

The Lubbock County District Attorney’s Office told police Thursday that eight dancers, their manager, a promoter and a manager at the sports bar won’t be prosecuted on misdemeanor charges, and city officials also said they wouldn’t pursue the case.

The men were arrested Feb. 16 at Jake’s Sports Cafe during the first of three sold-out shows for the troupe famous for it’s beefcake dancers. Police alleged that the dancers were performing a sexually oriented show without the proper permits. The show was shut down after one dancer, whom police said has his pants open, made “pelvic thrusts” in front of a woman’s face.

The group spent a night in jail before being released without having to post bond.

Scott Stephenson, owner of Jake’s Sports Cafe, said he plans to invite the all-male review back.

It’s times like this that make me realize how much we all miss Molly Ivins. She could have made poetry out of this. Alas.

  1. Support Science to Reverse Global Warming, which Al Gore says is still possible says:

    Someone suggested a Molly Ivins day to honor her truth telling and bravery, wrapped up in humor.

    Why not support a new wave of writers, journalists with these qualities by encouraging mimic (there are contests for a number of favored authors) to get the hang of it, before making it truly their own voice different but keeping intact the qualities of truth telling and bravery wrapped up in humor.

    Oh, and if they want to pick one of her favorite subjects, the Texas Legislature and Politicians, that too would be good.

    Come to think of it, she may have inspired Tom Tomorrow, Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert among others who do this so well.
