    Strip club T-shirt sales are taking off
    PORTLAND (AP) — A T-shirt boasting about Oregon strip clubs has become a best seller for a major retailer that caters to teenagers.

    The $18 T-shirt has become the most sought among 50 state-themed shirts rolled out last spring by Hot Topic, a mall-based retailer that sells edgy apparel for teens at about 600 stores nationwide. The slogan says: "Come for the fishing. Stay for the strip clubs.''

    It turns out there's truth to the slogan, created by an employee at the retailer's outlet at Washington Square. Oregon has 93 such clubs, or 2.6 per 100,000 residents — second only to West Virginia's 53 clubs, or 2.9 per 100,000 residents.

    The slogan doesn't bother Todd Davidson, chief executive for the state's tourism board.

    "It starts by encouraging people to come for the fishing, and that's year-round,'' he said. "I guess the other thing isn't seasonal either.''

    It could've been worse. Consider some of the T-shirt slogans for other states, including California's "Break me off a piece of that'' and Washington state's "Way less murders than Washington, D.C.''

    Way less murders, sure. Sex offenders? Another story.
