If you haven't been on the Twitters in the last couple of days, you're missing out on one of the best Oxford-related hashtag chains in recent memory. It's called #OxfordStripClubNames, and well, it's pretty self explanatory.
A few Ole Miss bros kicked this off on Monday night and it's blown the fuck up, reaching national trending status by Tuesday.
This has all come about because the city passed a preemptive ordinance this week to essentially keep strip joints from moving into town. According to a report by WMCTV.com:
The Oxford Planning Commission approved an ordinance that would regulate sexually-orientated businesses. That ordinance would give the commission control over where the businesses could open and restrict alcohol sales.
Apparently a few entrepreneurs had been making requests and gauging interest, so the city decided to nip it in the bud. I sure as hell wouldn't go to a booze-less strip club, so they've probably accomplished their goal.
For the record, we at the Cup are in full support of an Oxford-based gentleman's club, and think it should be placed directly next to City Hall, just for trolling's sake.
The trend started as mostly literary references:

Then it moved to general Oxford themes:

This nudie bar would be highly trafficked, but there's definitely some that would be stopping in more than others. Here's our list of the top-5 projected patrons:
- Andy Kennedy.
- Sparky Reardon in disguise.
- Marshall Henderson, who would repeatedly request the song "Make it Rain," toss a fistful of ones then throw up the Landshark.
- William Faulkner. You better believe he'd crawl out of his damn grave to see this shit.
