Your parents must be so proud.


Why not bring the charming atmosphere of a strip bar into your home, as in this listing Seth found? There's no need to stop with the pole, future owner of this "hip, modern" townhouse. Don't forget to pack your $20 Long Island Ice Tea, your curiously sticky floor, a few surgically deformed women who can barely disguise their loathing of you, and an overwhelming, suicide-inducing sense of ennui! See you at the housewarming!

I think the lamp in picture 6 may have a bit of an anger problem as well...
Wait, it's only $20 for a Long Island ice tea out there?! WooHoo!

Hey now, my wife takes "Diva Fit" classes. Which is a more suburban way of saying "aerobics as stripper lessons." So that pole would be considered a plus for the home, in her eyes.

Fermina said...

WOW! "Stainless steal" (SIC) appliances!

Couple of things here... The lamp over the white chair makes me think of the dentist. Plus, I can't believe the stripper pole was not listed as an amenity!

But, but, that's a load bearing stripper pole!

on first viewing I thought "well, whats wrong with that? maybe they are firemen or something." Then I realised that there were no holes in the floor or ceiling. And that it would still be weird to have a firemans pole in your house.

My excuse is that it has been a long and tiring day

Scott said...

I agree with burhanistan. That pole is the only thing keeping the ceiling from crashing down.

What else are you going to put in the middle of your living room that is going to bring in as much money as a pole?

Anyway, it is a lot more practical than uneven bars or a pommel horse. For someone who enjoys gymnastics, why not?

And what is that steel-railed enclosure in the bottom left? Wrestling pit? Clearly a one-stop S&M shop. Everyone should have one, but usually they are in the basement.

Scott said...

The steel rails keep the strippers from falling into the stairwell that there.

I believe the stripper pole was not included as an amenity because the owner plans to take it with her.

Scott-
How do you know the stripper is a her?

Jessie said...

bow chicka wow wow

Meg said...

They forgot to add stripper pole to the Equipment List.

Scott said...

Jodi--

Do male strippers swing around poles? I really don't know!

Stuart said...

Jodi - you may be right. That could be a training device for guys who work evenings at a place called The Junkyard.

Nice. Very nice.

Charlene said...

God.

The 21st century, where women can't even exercise without making sure college-aged males approve of every detail.

Nothing says "5-star" like garish overhead lighting in the kitchen and a stripper pole.
