“Why is it called a strip mall when there aren’t any strippers?”

A “strip mall” doesn’t have anything to do with “stripping,” but there are jokes. “RT @TheUnsayable: I can’t find any strippers in this strip mall. Gonna check this donut shop” was posted on Twitter by Dwigt Rortugal on February 21, 2010.

“Why is it called a strip mall when there arent any strippers?” was posted on Twitter by Meg Vlad on February 11, 2012. “I went to a strip mall and didnt find any strippers. This was a rip off” was posted on Reddit—Oneliners on January 2, 2020.


Wikipedia: Strip mall
A strip mall (also called a shopping plaza, shopping center, mini-mall, or shopping parade) is an open-air shopping center where the stores are arranged in a row, with a sidewalk in front. Strip malls are typically developed as a unit and have large parking lots in front. They face major traffic arterials and tend to be self-contained with few pedestrian connections to surrounding neighborhoods.

Who decided that a shopping plaza should be called a “strip mall”?  Seems misleading.

If it’s called a strip mall, why aren’t there strippers?

Why is it called a strip mall if no one is stripping?

What’s this world coming to when you go to a strip mall, but you don’t see any strippers?

I found out they’re building a new strip mall in my town. I was disappointed when I found out there wouldn’t be any strippers.
