Carnival Strippers


No matter where you work, there's always some jerk wanting you to hop to it.

Carnivals have strippers?

I've been going to the wrong effing carnivals.

Well, they used to. The girlie tent and all that. Don't you remember Cher's classic ode to carnival strippers, "Gypsys, Tramps, and Thieves"?

What a great shot. Hey! I'm so glad you've started posting here again. And I love the new header. I remember going to the carnival as a child and seeing that tent. It was like, "Whoa! What in hell is that?"

mr. downtown said...

I'm feeling the call again, so we'll see how long it lasts. Yeah, I suspect that tent was formative for a lot of people.

This is such a great picture. Where do you find them?

I found this one on flickr. I also hit a lot of school and state online photo archives.
