A pole dancing studio in Utah has started a petition to make pole dancing a sport in the 2012 Olympics. FAIR ENOUGH. I am not about to come to anyone’s work and slap the pole out of their crotch. But let’s be really honest with ourselves, pole dancing community. If you want to make the argument that pole dancing is intensely athletic and demands impressive total body conditioning and coordination, be my guest. But if you want to make the argument, as this lady does, that ROCK CLIMBERS USE POLE DANCING AS A WAY TO TRAIN FOR THE MOUNTAINS, then you are being a fucking liar.

There are more lies packed into this one minute video than there are in the first half hour of Jim Carey’s hit comedy Liar Liar (before the magical curse was placed on him and he was forced to always tell the truth, to hilarious effect). For one, there is (sic) not professions, plural, that use pole dancing. There is one profession. It is called pole dancer. Also, I find it hard to believe that a guy who was into rock climbing but couldn’t afford to install his own rock wall would opt to put in a permanent stripper pole rather than just, you know, going to the gym. Or the mountains. I feel that many men might opt to leave everything they had behind and MOVE to the mountains before installing a stripper pole. Not that that would be necessary, since no one is doing this made up thing the lady on the computer TV just made up.

Remember pole dancing enthusiasts: no sport was ever admitted into the Olympics by subterfuge, except for speed walking. Speed walking is bullshit.

  1. i HATE speed walking….. next they’re going to add jogging.

    you should definitely post some speed walking videos… just because they look like they’re voguing with spina bifida.

  2. A not-so-close friend of mine went to a pole-dancing class with her MOM. And she WASN’T creeped out in the slightest watching her mom sexy-dance on a pole like a stripper. And everyone else thought it sounded aww, sooo fun!
    Am I the only one who would find it EW, sooo uncomfortable?

  3. No, crazy lady, “the olympics” are not “thinking of adding it to their curriculum”. You’re thinking of being rejected by the olympics to their curriculum.

  4. do you think the magical curse from ‘liar liar’ is the same magical curse that will prevent him from saying ‘no’ in ‘yes man’?

  5. What the heck are “basic male tricks”, anyway?

    That woman sounds like she’s going to burst into tears at any moment.

  7. So we won’t have baseball or softball at the London Olympics, but we’ll have pole dancing? Epic Fail, stupid girl!

    This is a viral video for the Office spinoff, right?

    If not, this is a stark reminder of how real life can be just as awkward as mockumentary.

  9. Seriously if it weren’t for pole dancing studios, strippers would have never been able to incorporate this skill into exotic dancing.

    I’d especially like to thank the Olympics for thinking of adding pole dancing to their curriculum…
