    The Parts and Burlesque Revue

There was a bar in my city that used to have a dada talent show thing. There was a girl who did a... dance? routine involving a metal codpiece, a die grinder, and Punish Your Machine. Her stage name was OSHA Violator. I would go to the Parts and Burlesque Revue, but I would be very disappointed if it wasn't in the same vein.

The metal codpiece schtick originates with the Jim Rose Circus Sideshow, if I'm not mistaken. From there it spread to the Genitorturers and Impotent Sea Snakes (so named because they got a killer deal on a "KISS" sign from the Alive tour, if I'm not mistaken, but the "K" didn't work). The combination of "sparks" and "chastity belt" was such an obvious one that we got to the point where we'd simply say "keep the sparks off the side fills" and barely notice.

Nobody was self-aware enough to make an OSHA joke, though.
