I am Easily Impressed

Driving home from work last night, the local Sports talk radio station announced some portion of its staff would be at a local strip club if people wanted to hang out. This is largely unremarkable given the target audience (especially those losers listening to sports talk radio at 11 p.m. on a Saturday). But I was not ready for the last line of the ad, that the strip club was actually running a canned food drive, and that bringing a donation would get you a reduction on the cover charge. You don't expect something so socially conscious and life-affirming from a business where people pay to watch other people take their clothes off and pay even more to have said naked people actually rub up against you.

  • This strikes me as an ill-conceived can drive. If people don't donate enough cans to make up the difference in their discount, why not just donate the difference? Unless the notion of stripping on sale brings in a larger than usual audience. Do you think strip clubs conduct program evaluation to make sure their charitable activities are benefiting the population they're designed to serve?
