The folks at FourFour deserve some kind of prize (*points to crotch??*) for digging up Stripper, a 1986 documentary that follows strippers as they head to Vegas on a quest for the Golden G-String Award. Yep, that exists. It’s basically the funniest historical document since Wildwood, NJ. The whole thing is amazing, and after watching it, I only have only one question: …Mom?
Choice quotes: “I can remember I think around 16. I started to realize I was into different things, sexually, than the usual, normal thing that everybody said was normal. I began to get into wild clothing… and wild… catalogs.” [Wasn’t Wild Catalogs a Tim Allen movie?]
“Even though I know this is armageddon and there probably won’t be world peace, I’m here for world peace, and I support the Polish people.”
I’m stealing that sign and putting it my yard. Also, be sure to check out FourFour‘s collection of .gif animations from the film, which are life changing.
