Tits, pints and would be pimps.


Urgh,
From today's indo.

"The downturn in the pub trade, the smoking ban, the crackdown on drink-driving and a slowing economy are the reasons cited by a rural pub owner who said he has been forced to employ a scantily clad barmaid to help him to keep his struggling business afloat.

Every Thursday since the start of September, the topless barmaid is attracting customers from across the region to Browne's Bar, located on the Shannon river along the Limerick/Clare border.

"Basically, the pub business is down all over the country. Everyone is suffering and this is the case here in a big way.

"The smoking ban, the garda crackdown, high prices and less money in people's pockets have led to this," said John Joe Fitzpatrick who runs the bar in Montpelier, Co Limerick.

He has rejected criticism from local detractors that he is using "vulgar and incorrigible tactics" to draw customers.

"There are plenty of women down here on Thursdays though, and all have said they admired Jasmin for her work.

"Even some of the older women encourage and bring their husbands here as they are more full of beans and romantic towards their wives when they return home.

"I see it as a therapy for the older men.

"As the song goes, there's life in the old man yet," chuckled Mr Fitzpatrick."

Life maybe, but not an ounce of dignity in the stupid old bollocks. What fucking 'therapy' do old men need anyway? How is ogling a pair of breasts therapy?
This makes me sick to my stomach. He bleats on about prices and tax and gardai, but sees nothing wrong with making money exploiting and objectifying a woman. Shame on him and shame on the stupid women who go in there and 'admire' Jasmine's work. Maybe when he tries to convince Jasmine to start doling out hand jobs as extra therapy for rainy Wednesdays they'll wake the fuck up.
Exploitation, I"m really against it.

What on gawd's holy earth has become of the Irish Indeploitation? A picture of the publican... and none of the gorgeous, pouting Jasmine's jugs!?!

I take it she's not the publican's wife or daughter?

What's a hand job?

Oh, FMC that makes my blood boil.
That's right, hand jobs or lap dances is the next step for him only in the interests of "therapy" for the older men. His mind isn't really on the money.
Jasmin needs to wake up and realize that if she's going to be a sex worker she should make much more than she's getting there.
And shame on the women who add to her exploitation.

Dirty old men need love too, FMC.

OK, bad taste.

He's a real wag, isn't he? I think it's humour like from the barman that may have been the problem in the first place. I'd need Jeremy Irons serving me in the nuddie before I could sit through an evening of chuckling Mr. Fitzpatrick.

So, Karaoke and pub trivia didn't pull them in?

There are lots of gimmicks to get people in your pub that don't involve anyone getting their tits out.

What a sad lack of imagination...

I'm telling you, it's only a small step away from this dude setting up a room upstairs for 'massage'.

I had to read twice and then check the calendar to make sure you are not pulling a joke.

Sad people and jerk of a pub owner.

Hello there FBD, I wouldn't dream of joking about something so disgustingly offensive. It's pretty bad is it not? That chuckling fool needs a solid kick in the arse.

if jasmine is of the age and mental capacity to make her own decisions, is she really being exploited?

i can see both sides of this issue. fitzpatrick's schtick wouldn't stick if there were no demand, but you're right, there's slippery slop-age there.

I know what you're saying, but I'm willing to bet Jasmine didn't come up with the idea.

Tits aside for a minute ... even though I'm partial to a pair myself:

The smoking ban, the garda crackdown, high prices and less money in people's pockets have led to this.

· Smoking ban - Even smokers have no problem with it.
· Garda crack down - Eh, isn't it the law and the moral code that you don't drink and drive?
· High prices - Got it in one John Joe. You're the one charging them.
· Less money in people's pockets - See above.

Well, the stripper pubs have been a fixture across the water for years now though they usually end up being the cheapest, tackiest joints with the cheapest, scumiest, tackiest punters so Mr. Fitz's business plan may not be the stroke of genius he thinks it is.

His bar's probably full of tits anyway, another 2 couldn't make that much difference.

Don't worry FMC - if he sits there long enough he'll get piles.

One has to keep in mind the bar owner is merely filling a demand for something that already exists. I imagine all people attending this pub are adults and are doing so at their own free will and that no one is being coerced into anything. Thus I don't feel anyone is being "exploited".
Huge Tits Fucked

Right, you'd be happy for your daughter/mother to do it then.
