Strippers in Europe

A funny thing came to my mind the other day while looking at a hand full of pocket change. I realized that there is no 1 euro bill, just 1 and 2 euro coins. Now, I've "heard" that back home there are these places called "strip clubs." In these so called "strip clubs," it is said that there are women who dance exotically and when given a dollar bill, may do a "special" move of some sorts.

This got me to thinking, how would you tip a stripper in a European strip club? You can't just huck these huge 1 or 2 euro coins at her from the crowd, because she doesn't want any more bruises or black eyes than she already might have. So I came to the conclusion that strippers perform like many of the robot street performers found across Europe. When they hear a coin hit the bottom of the bucket or stage, they come to life dancing with more fervor than Jennifer Beals in "Flash Dance."

If anyone has more expertise in this subject, we'd love to know what really happens. Being a man of such high moral standing, I won't subscribe to their business practices... that and the horrible dollar to euro exchange rate.
