Wherein there are both dancers and Texans.

Photos are up of the Burlesque Be'elzapalooza. A swell time was had by all. Pretty good turn-out, too! Along with the Usual Suspects, there was a new "ick" factor this time: a kissing booth where you could get yourself tongued by a clown with a mouth full of whipped cream. That is our role here: to bring you the very stuff of which nightmares are made.

And in national news:

Texas arresting people in bars for being drunk

    SAN ANTONIO, Texas (Reuters) - Texas has begun sending undercover agents into bars to arrest drinkers for being drunk, a spokeswoman for the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission said on Wednesday.

    The first sting operation was conducted recently in a Dallas suburb where agents infiltrated 36 bars and arrested 30 people for public intoxication, said the commission's Carolyn Beck.

    Being in a bar does not exempt one from the state laws against public drunkenness, Beck said.

    I had heard about the Texan police arresting drunken people in bars. However, isn't a bar (or any other place of business) considered private property?

      I don't think ownership matters if the public can come and go. The legal distinction is probably more complex than that, but I'm fairly sure it's along those lines. <lj user="jwz"> can surely shed more light if he's of a mind to.

    i was fully expecting the texan reference to be a picture of travis in the burlesque show.

    how disappointing.

  3. Hmm, the clown-snog thing sounds like a great way to pass cooties around.
