New York's highest courts this year ruled that, sadly, lap dances are not art. Now lap law enforcement officials upstate are trying to figure out if it is illegal to buy a bunch of teens lap dances as part of a surprise 16th birthday party—a strip 16 party?

South Glens Falls Police Chief Kevin Judd tells the AP that the "investigation began after people concerned about the November 3 party at the Spare Time bowling alley told authorities about racy photos that had been posted on social networking sites." See, "several kids at the party got lap dances" at the party, which was attended by about 80 adults and teens. The name of the birthday boy and his family have not been released.

Investigators are now trying to determine if the two dancers, who work for an outfit "Tops In Bottoms," did anything more than dance. ("At least one of the images shows a scantily clad, tattooed woman clinging upside down to a seated teen as others look on.") They're also trying to determine who hired the dancers and if any kids were served booze at the party.

Don't worry about the kids, though. Neither they (or the dancers) are the investigation's targets. But authorities do say that "child endangerment is among the potential charges faced by any adults who organized the party." Further, "the bowling alley's liquor license could be revoked if it knowingly allowed the exotic dancing or served alcohol to anyone under age." Way to ruin classy teen birthday parties for everyone, Associated Press!
