“I misunderstood the meaning of ‘strip mall’ and now I’m not allowed back”

A “strip mall” doesn’t have anything to do with “stripping,” but there are jokes.
     
“Apparently, I misunderstood the meaning of “strip mall.” Can someone bring me bail?” was posted on Twitter by Mike Turner on August 7, 2019. “I just totally misunderstood the meaning of ‘Strip Mall’ and could one of you guys send bail money?” was posted on Twitter by Verifried Drunk™®© on September 8, 2011. “I misunderstood the meaning of ‘strip mall’ and now I’m not allowed back” was posted on Twitter by Beanzebub 🐀 on January 23, 2023.
 
“Strip malls are a whole lot more family friendly than they sound,” “Strip malls aren’t as fun as they sound,”  “Strip malls aren’t as sexy as they sound,” “Strip malls sound way cooler than they are” and “Why is it called a strip mall when there aren’t any strippers?” are related sayings.
   
   
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.
