    You can probably deduct amount of state sales tax on all your lap dances for the year from your federal taxes due. ;)

    Interesting.. I've never been inside any such establishment... but from what I can see on movies and TV... it sounds like all the twirling and crawling on the stage would be non-taxable art... but once the "artist" makes physical contact then it is no longer art?

    So... how about those dinner theaters where the actors/performers come out into the audience... I guess it ceases to be art once you can touch the artist?

    I'm going to go to museums and touch all the paintings and declare loudly that they are no longer art! :hurah::D
