A Chicago-based strip club's unusual holiday offer -- free lap dances for customers who donate toys as part of their "Lap Dances for the Needy" promotion -- gained national attention this weekend when "Saturday Night Live" cast members riffed on it as part of a "Weekend Update" joke-off.
Seth Myers, "Weekend Update" host, shared the news of the now-annual tradition at the Admiral Theater, 3940 W. Lawrence Ave., and joked: "So give a toy to Charity and Charity will give it to the manager."
Afterward, guest host and "SNL" alum Jimmy Fallon interjected with a "That's the best you got?" and a joke-off -- also featuring fellow alums of the show, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, both Second City alums, in an unexpected cameo -- commenced:
"The strippers aren't getting paid for this, they're doing it pro-boner," Fallon said.
"The most popular toy so far is Tickle Me Brenda," Poehler countered.
"More than just your heart will grow three sizes that day," Fey said.
"Yes, that's a Bananagrams in my pocket and I'm happy to see you," Myers joked.
The one-liners continued through to two final offerings which set Team Fallon/Fey over the top as they claimed the joke-off win.
