I love everything about this AP story about five Everett, Wash. baristas accused of prostitution for charging “customers to touch their breasts and buttocks.”
Let us count the ways, shall we:
During a two-month investigation, detectives also saw the women lick whipped cream off each other and pose naked for pictures at the Grab-n-Go Espresso stand in Everett, about 30 miles north of Seattle.
The name of the place where these women charged customers $80 bucks to touch their breasts and bums was actually called Grab-n-Go Espresso stand. But what else?
Undercover detectives began posing as customers in mid-July.
During one visit, a barista allegedly told a detective that for $20, she and another barista would give him a show. He paid and they bared their breasts and pulled down their undergarments.
Can you imagine what the assignment room at the police station must have been like. I’m guessing it was like the wild wild west with detectives gunning for the chance to get paid to buy coffee and donuts and watch women strip for them.
But the best part, and for no reason other than the hilarious image it produced was this bit:
The women also charged customers to play “basketball,” a game in which customers threw wadded up money at the women, who caught the money in their underwear, detectives said.
No charges were actually filed, but the women, ages 18-24, do have to appear in court for misdemeanor charges. (Thanks, Brett!)
