(SeattlePI)   So, I was in a Portland Taco Bell trying to buy a meal with a bunch of $2 bill and after the cashier rings up my order he tries to hand over my change by placing it in my G-string. Wait, what?   (blog.seattlepi.com ) divider line

But the feds have taken a dim view of Zukle's actions: It's against federal law to deface U.S. currency with the intent to make it unusable.

The club owner is not defacing the bills wit the intent to make them unusable, so the Feds are just being douchebags. Banks mark their ATM bills with red markers all the time.

The Feds should be prosecuted for misfeasance if they proceed with this asshattery.

. He says he wants the strip joint to remind patrons of the vampire-infested cantina in the 1996 Robert Rodriguez film, From Dusk Till Dawn.

Now that is a reason to go to Portland.

It's a pretty meh club, over-priced, and the girls aren't that hot. They had the "vegan strip-club" gimmick going for awhile, but I'm not sure if that's still going on.

Devil's Point, Union Jack's or The Lucky Devil Lounge are a lot more fun.

The girls are all vegans, or they only allow vegans in the club? Either way I don't see how my dick's getting sucked in the champagne room.

From this link: Commenting on the incident, Baltimore County police spokesman Bill Toohey told the Sun: "It's a sign that we're all a little nervous in the post-9/11 world."

Yes, so these bills are supposed to be blood stained after being stuck in a stripper's G-string? No, From Dusk til Dawn is not what comes to mind...

This would make an interesting effort to show how much impact he has on the local economy. Imagine he did all the bills and near 50 percent of the cash in town had his markings. Then when local prudes tried to shut him down, he could point out how much he impacts the economy. Ask you opponent to open his wallet and show your bills in his wallet.

Perhaps the Feds can't stop him from doing this.
But they could sent some IRS inspectors to check out that all transactions are properly being accounted, and taxes paid.
Or maybe, you just want to stop defacing our bills, and we can all just go back to what we were doing before...?

Should you be allowed top spend money without advertising for a third party? It's not like it's some kind of political speech. This is just plain advertising for some business, and many people will not want to use the money to advertise sex work.

For you non-Portland locals: The vegan part is important because all Oregon bars are required by law to sell food, and not just popcorn and pretzels, actual hot food. Hence, nearly every strip club in town makes a big deal out of their sirloin dinners, $6 t-bone specials, and so on. (To my palate, the steaks at the Acropolis are just as good as a $25 steak anywhere, but it's $6 and you watch the pretty lady dance.) Hence the need for a vegan strip club, for the discerning horny gentlevegan.

Gunny Walker: This would make an interesting effort to show how much impact he has on the local economy. Imagine he did all the bills and near 50 percent of the cash in town had his markings. Then when local prudes tried to shut him down, he could point out how much he impacts the economy. Ask you opponent to open his wallet and show your bills in his wallet.


Here in Southeast Portland we have no local prudes. We have strip clubs, lingerie modeling, plenty of brightly-lit adult bookstores, and "dance clubs". Right from where I sit I could walk to four within ten minutes and I live in a middling residential neighborhood (52nd and Powell.)

Whatthefark - my thought was that if "they" had Santanico Pandemonium there, "they" wouldn't nee this gimmick. Mmmmm, Santanico Pandemonium

I volunteer at my local library and we have one of those two-dollar bills pinned to the wall because the bank refused to accept it.
 
2012-11-07 09:02:29 PM  
It annoys me that the article felt the need to say a $2 bill is legal tender.
My opinion of the average intelligence has proven yet again to be too lofty.
