Wanna be a Canadian Embassy Official?

As reported in Irish Examiner 28/07/04:


Women wishing to enter Canada to work as strippers must provide naked photos of themselves to qualify for visas.

The Canada Embassy in Mexico says “stage photos during performances are required”.

Immigration officers are thus having to pore over naked pictures of hundreds of exotic dancers to keep imposters out of Canada.

In a memo to fellow visa officers around the world, officials said if a dancer passed the no-clothes test, they could then require a police certificate or medical examination.

Thank God someone’s out there looking out for us. I feel confident that Osama won’t be able to sneak in to Canada disguised as the world’s tallest exotic dancer. Besides, even if you’re disappointed that the dancers at your local club are ugly, you’ll have the satisfaction of knowing that the owner was doing his bit to employ Canadians!
