Sometimes an idea is so bad that it's actually pretty genius. That's exactly what happened when a local strip club in El Paso was turned into a Starbucks. Don't forget to watch the video at the end!
As you can read from an article written by Buzz Adams, a strip club turning into a Starbucks is a plot point in the comedy Idiocracy.
So I wondered how I could take this bad idea and somehow make it worse by coming up with the top five businesses to build at a place where a strip club used to be, that is somehow worse than a Starbucks.
Opening a daycare where a strip club used to be is like opening a firework stand where somebody committed arson. At least all those dancers who need child care for their midday shifts got it covered.

Rebuilding a strip club or a former strip club just sounds like Bad karma. Didn't the closing of the first Club tell you anything?
I'm sure I'm missing a few pretty hilarious businesses that would make for terrible strip club replacements. If you come up with any that are laugh or even giggle-worthy let me know by messaging me here.
