Hire me! I can be a better vetter!

November 20, 2011

Hey Blog Guy, I don’t get out very much. Can you explain what these guys in this picture are doing?

Yes, the caption says they’re vetting dancers before the opening of an Erotica show.

Excuse me? They’re doing what?

You know, they’re watching exotic dancers, to make sure the audience won’t go blind or spontaneously combust or anything like that.

That’s an actual JOB?

Sure, but Exotic Dance Vetting is tougher than it looks, because the minute the vetter seems to be enjoying it, he’s fired.

You take this poor guy here on the right.  He’s a veteran vetter, yet he’s biting through his lower lip and his forehead is changing shape. Soon, steam will shoot from his ears.

What’s more, you’ll notice the entire front row of vetters has already left in disgrace. Trust me, this isn’t easy work.

Blog Guy, this still sounds like the best career path in the world. Do you know of anything better?

I guess not, unless you can get this dude’s job.

The gal on the right needs to straighten the tops of her thigh highs so they match. Figure the OE guys wouldn’t notice…

Neither the dancer or a vetter be,
off to coffee and some music for me.

The OE Blog guys: I can’t believe they’re not vetter!

Police and council officials do the vetting? in London? What are our police and council officials in New York doing, going on about Occupy Wall Street, when they could be vetting dancers?

It doesn’t get much better
Than to be a dancer vetter
You can check their acts
And give bad ones the axe
And judge a lot, just to show you’re a go-getter

@Onedoor, I did notice. I also noticed that one of her thigh muscles seem to be bulging a whole lot more than the other and I am a bit creeped out about that.
