No title. Just Read.

So what makes a brothel a brothel?

My sleepless nights are fraught with such semantic dilemmas.

I reason that a brothel could be defined as a building where women are paid to have sex with men.

Or perhaps it's like pornography: I can't define it, but I know it when I see it.

Or perhaps it's none of the above.

According to Pennsylvania law, a brothel must

a) house more than four women


b) contain a kitchen.

This is apparently why sorority houses on my campus don't have kitchens and are required to keep records of all male guests.

So that's what makes a brothel a brothel. A kitchen.

See, if I were the police, I wouldn't be worrying so much about kitchens. I'd be checking out the houses with six straight men and two straight women, all unrelated. Kitchen optional.

But since this is not considered a brothel, and because it's allowed in the college dormitory system, I am happy to announce that this is exactly who I'll be living with next year.

Heh. heh.

P.S. We're all straight, but don't worry--we have strictly platonic relationships.

In Texas, it is illegal for one to shoot a buffalo from the second story of a hotel. The punishment in New York for jumping off a building is death. Nebraska law states that it is illegal for a bar to serve beer unless said establishment is also brewing a kettle of soup.
