Welcome to Happyendingadelphia
Times are tight, yo. You know this. I know this. And our city fathers know this. But what to do to help spur the economy? How about making it legal to get a happy ending massage?!
Bravo, Councilman Clarke.
Brav, flip over, o.
From today's Daily News:
A little-known city law says that every time a masseuse gives a member of the opposite sex a professional rubdown, it could have an unhappy legal ending.
City Councilman Darrell Clarke yesterday moved to lift an almost four-decades-old legal ban on men massaging women and women massaging men. ...
Clarke agreed, noting that his legislation would recognize that men and women massage each other in the city every day.
Fine, you got me: This isn't really about the human-trafficking-fueled "spas" that used to pay my bills when I worked at the city's alt-weeklies. It's about rich-people massages that might end with a "Whoops!"
Or is it?
