Lewisville residents will never look at the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles the same way.
The small community just north of Dallas was forced to amend its decency laws on Monday after a restaurant had its wait staff serve food wearing little more than body paint.
Instead of donning the bar's normal bikini uniform, waitresses would ditch their tops for a pair of pasties and some paint.
The town's local branch of Redneck Heaven — yes, there is more than one in north Texas — had been staging an occasional promotional called ABC days, shorthand for "anything but clothes." Instead of donning the bar's normal bikini uniform, waitresses would ditch their tops for a pair of pasties and some paint.
Judging from the restaurant's Facebook account, Redneck Heaven placed little to no restrictions on staff attire for ABC events. At one end of the bar, customers might find a woman covered with the Batman symbol, at the other, an employee with a Confederate flag painted on her chest.
During a recent July bash, one waitress chose an extremely anatomically correct design that featured a full rib cage and heart. Another staffer paid tribute to crime-fighting mutant turtle Raphael. Meanwhile, two servers decided to completely break the mold (pun intended) and arrive to work as several canisters of Play-Doh.
Failing to appreciate the creativity, Lewisville city council members unanimously voted to ban the use of body paint at local food and beverage establishments. If it wants to hold another ABC party, Redneck Heaven will have to file as a sexually-oriented business.
