Well, this gives a whole new meaning to "My Super Sweet 16." Earlier this week, police arrested 33-year-old New York mother Judy Viger for allegedly hiring strippers to perform at her son's 16th birthday extravaganza. (They grow up so fast... one day it's a Superman-themed party; the next it's a Sigmund Freud-themed party.)
The birthday boy and his friends had a great time--you know, getting their faces straddled by ladies from company Tops In Bottoms--but a bunch of parents (specifically, NOT COOL parents) saw photos on Facebook and complained to authorities, who subsequently charged Viger with multiple counts of endangering the welfare of a child.
"As difficult as it may be for us to have to weigh in on these kinds of cases," said the local district attorney. "Certainly exposing the unsuspecting children to this sort of 'entertainment' goes beyond the pale when it comes to what is appropriate."
Now, we wouldn't want our moms handing us singles to place in a g-string. But it's pretty dubious that this qualifies as a sex offense, and here's why: The strippers weren't even naked! The service Viger allegedly bought is called a "Bikinigram," for chrissakes.
Besides, Viger going to prison for years will "endanger" her son far more than a stupid lap dance. If this district attorney wants to make an arrest whenever some 16-year-old gets blue balls, there aren't enough handcuffs in the world.
