Lap dances were real, Benjamins weren’t

This should finally settle the argument about whether “Men’s Clubs” are good or bad for society.  These strippers busted a counterfeiter.  That’s a community service right there!


SMYRNA, Tenn. – A man who authorities say used his computer to make fake $100 bills to buy lap dances at a strip club has pleaded guilty to counterfeiting charges, federal prosecutors said.

Strippers at Deja Vu in Nashville were suspicious of the bills and called police after Damon Armagost spent $600 of the fake money April 16, authorities said.

  1. @Paul – funny! I think the strippers probably have as much experience handling cash (especially large denomination bills) as anyone. I image they are just practived in the art od detecting phony bills – after all, their livelihood depends on it!

  2. Not that I think strip clubs are bad for society, but it’s quite likely that without them this guy wouldn’t have used his HP photo printer to print copies of $100 bills (the story doesn’t mention him using them for anything else).
    So, in a sense, (I’m not serious here) the club was inviting a crime, which in most countries (but not the US, granted) is a crime in itself.

    Anyway, I wonder how the strippers spotted the fakes. What gave it away? The fact that one side was blank?
