Now I tip them $5.00 instead of $1.00.

I'd say Tampa's 6 foot rule does more to hurt business. By the way, why is the economic wellbeing of one of the filthiest industries in America newsworthy?? For the prices that a lap dance breaks down to per/minute, I say let that market crash, they're all sloots anyway.

I am starting the Save The Strippers Foundation.

Jerry Lewis will work the tele-thon on PBS.

Next, we will record a charity song with the latest celebrities.

To top if off, a huge fund raising concert will be held, with proceeds going to the Save The Stripper Foundation.

I've been to Mons Venus, and it's a DUMP! All I heard was how I 'had to go there', and so on. What a dump. The women are nothing to write home about either. Picture a Latino gang hangout, with no liquor. No wonder business is down 25%...your place is a dump.

I bet your ugly strippers are the backbone of the american economy. And if you had any sense you would speak to one and get some tips cause guys are not paying you to do anything special. so they are doing a service to ugly women everywhere. Its kinda like beer its helping ugly people get some.

If the poor economy drives women to strip, I'll be more than happy to help them out. I've got a pole they can practice on, and will not charge a single cent. ;-)

Now that is crazy when strippers are feeling the pinch in their pockets. Normally vices like sex, alcohol and drugs thrive but as you know GAS is king.
