Only in Canada, Eh?

Beth sent me this story:

Foreign strippers planning to dance in Canadian clubs must now provide photos of themselves with no clothes on to qualify for a visa for Canada.

The Canadian Embassy in Mexico says "stage photos during performances are required."

Sorry - I should clarify. It's an old story. From the Strippergate days. But it's Friday, and it's funny, and we all need a laugh.

Will they show strippers' photos to Muslims who want to come to Canada too?

RightGuy, thanks for looking out for national security. But I was born and raised in Canada. There is no need for me to seek entry. So to speak.

Rightguy -- We want proof! Post YOUR pictures online!

And Winston -- In Canada, Muslim women are free, should they so choose, to have their own nudy-Club. Can you picture one where their heads are covered, butt-nothing else? What do they call that? OK, so long as men are not watching?
