In solidarity with thousands of world organizations, bar girls working the fabled strip in Angeles City, Philippines are making themselves available on the street with prices clearly posted. Available for daily or weekly rates, women working the bars are now available to passersby, who now don’t even have to walk into a bar. “Those clubs use lots of electricity for music, air conditioning, and lighting,” says one bar girl. “Thousands of us have banded together to lessen our global footprint. The customers’ haggling over prices has caused too much hot air in the clubs, increasing the power needed for the additional air conditioning. To solve the problem, we’re going green by putting our prices right on the street, in plain view. If greengrocers, lemonade stands, and gas stations can openly post prices, so should we.”
Asked if she would consider posting hourly rates as well, the comely lass we interviewed responded “We’re not doing this to make it easier for Cheap Charlies. If they’re looking for an hourly rate, tell them to put their banana into a parking meter instead. We’re going green, so have some respect.”
By some estimates, as many as 10,000 bar girls work the Angeles City bar strip. It would appear that if the rest of the world reflected a similar eco-consciousness, the dangers associated with global warming could be, in short order, merely a dim memory.
