In New York, Apparently Strip Clubs Have No Artistic Value…LIES!

If there is one thing Vinnie Paul and I have in common, it’s an undying love of strippers. And I find it very insulting that a New York Court ruled 4-3 that Nite Moves Strip Club in Albany couldn’t get “dramatic or musical arts performances” tax exemption because strip clubs have no artistic value…WHAT?!?The three judges who sided with Nite Moves argued that it’s not the government’s job to decide what kind of dance is “cultural and artistic.” But the deciding judges argued that if ice dancing isn’t exempt, neither is lap dancing. Obviously, the 4 judges that ruled against this have never been to a strip club. I mean, if a naked women spinning on a pole like a top while catching dollar bills in her ass crack isn’t art, I don’t know what is.

This decision is sad in a hilarious sort of way. You can read what the judges had to say below:

“The court majority said 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’ that was adopted by the Legislature ‘with the evident purpose of promoting cultural and artistic performances in local communities.’ “

The three other judges, though, concluded that there’s no difference in the law’s eye between “highbrow dance and lowbrow dance.”
