“I’d go to a strip club, but it’s always the same old thong and dance”

“Song and dance” is a New York slang phrase that dates to the 19th century. Strips clubs give the same old “thong and dance.” “Thong bikinis and nude dance clubs (same old thong and dance)” was printed in a 1991 newspaper.

“Went to a strip club this weekend. Same old thong and dance” was posted on Twitter on October 12, 2009. “I’d go to a strip club, but it’s always the same old thong and dance” was posted on Twitter on January 26, 2012. “I don’t know what the fascination is with strip clubs. It’s just the same old thong and dance” was posted on Twitter by Sickipedia_Feed on June 22, 2012.


11 August 1991, St. Petersburg (FL) Times, “Crime and extreme punishment” by Don Addis, pg. 5D, col. 2:
It’s all part of a new get-tough attitude that has power-oriented types cracking down on thong bikinis and nude dance clubs (same old thong and dance), handcuffing 9-year-old girls and busting penny-ante pinochle games.

Pre-Katrina, life was largely symbolized as the good-time Big Easy, a rollicking city of jazz, funk, drive-through daiquiri bars and French Quarter cabarets ("Not Just the Same Old Thong and Dance,” reads one billboard on Interstate 10).

When I dated a stripper, every night it was the same thong and dance.
