The sleepy town of Vassalboro, Maine, just celebrated the opening of the Grandview Topless Coffee Shop, where its shirtless waitstaff of seven women and three men (who were selected out of 150 applicants) serve up pricey java ($3) and cheap thrills (free if you're over 18).
According to the local paper:
Elvis Thompson, 32, of Brunswick, was the lone male waiter at the coffee shop Tuesday morning, though he said there are two other male waiters.
Thompson, topless and wearing black boots and black shorts, said he was laid off from another job two weeks ago and then saw an advertisement for the coffee shop.
During the first day, Monday, Thompson said he waited on two ladies, one of whom told him she had been opposed to the business but now she thinks it's great.
Hmm. I wonder why she thinks it's great all of a sudden. Maybe the waiter allowed her to tweak his nipples? Now that's enough to sway even the most hardcore Puritan.
Anyway, as you may have guessed, the business has been a source of controversy. I don't know why. I want a topless coffee shop in my town!
