A 9.4 percent unemployment rate? Pish posh! In Dallas-Fort Worth exotic club managers across the city are desperately seeking strippers for Super Bowl weekend.

These adult clubs currently are estimated to be experiencing a total shortage of 10,000 exotic dancers as they attempt to meet a tourist to stripper ratio of 30:1.

Dallas strip joint Showtime Cabaret is advertising like crazy to bring in the chicas. The gentlemen’s club is currently in need of 140 more gams (or, for those who failed math and/or never mastered 1930s colloquialisms, 70 additional girls) to bring their total number of dancers to 120.

“Want a safe, clean club to make the big $$$ in?” reads Showtime’s advertisement, promising close access to Cowboys Stadium where the  Super Bowl will be played. “If you think you have what it takes come see us.”

A manager at Silver City Cabaret was a bit more optimistic about their ability to hire more girls before the onslaught of Super Bowl attendees. She told The Daily Caller that while currently there are hardly enough lap-friendly ladies to meet the expected demand, she thinks many women will travel from across the country to get in on the Super Bowl debauchery bucks.

“I think a lot of girls are going to come into town on Monday and Tuesday,” she said. “We get girls from Vegas, New York, and a lot from up north, like Wisconsin.”

Stripper ratio good or bad, sounds like Dallas will be having a rip roaring time come February 6.
