So now I'm lowbrow?

#1 Post by British Lap Dancing Assn » Tue Oct 23, 2012 10:34 am


A sharply divided court in New York says lap dances don't promote culture in a community the way ballet or other artistic endeavors do, and so shouldn't get a tax break.

The state's top court split 4 to 3. Dissenting justices conclude there's no distinction in state law between "highbrow dance and lowbrow dance," so the case raises "significant constitutional problems."

The lawsuit was filed by Nite Moves, an adult club in suburban Albany that was arguing its fees for admission and private dances are exempt from sales taxes.

The court majority says taxes apply to many entertainment venues, such as amusement parks and sporting events. It ruled the club has failed to prove it qualifies for the exemption for "dramatic or musical arts performances" meant to promote culture.

And probably a chair break as well... :shock:

Oh, so that's the inspiration for the new avatar. If you want to do another one, you might have heard of the post-debate meme that's gone viral.

Change Avatars to one of the Survivor Bimbos, instead of the BBBimbo?
