Lex and Kenny are called in to work on their day off. They have not had an actual day off in several weeks, plus payroll is late again. On the car ride to work, they discuss their past relationships with women and their various mommy and daddy issues. At work, much to Lex’s surprise and Kenny’s dismay, Ken’s mom comes out of early retirement and becomes a dancer at their club. Later that afternoon, Ken and Lex are reunited with a former classmate, who has dropped out of college to become a rapper.

The adventures of Lex and Kenny, Club floor hosts extraordinaire. They are childhood best friends who grew up together, went to the same school, dated the same group of girls, shared the same hopes and dreams. They are “closet geeks” who collect comic books, watch sci-fi movies, play video games, and tabletop play role-playing, but it keeps all a secret to maintain their industry tough-guy facade. They don’t care about sports, partying, or socializing with any industry people outside of work. When Lex and Ken aren’t bitching about their jobs at the strip club, they find themselves debating comic books, classic 80s action movies, and MMO lore. As Lex and Ken “grow old together” working in the strip club, they have become more anti-social, more cynical, and have developed a more sarcastic view on just about everything: money, career, women, sports, politics, religion, and family. Meanwhile, as they both struggle to try their so hard not to become like their respective fathers, both their lives have become “runaway freight trains,” heading toward their inevitable destinies. “This would be a great job if it wasn’t for the dancers and the customers…” Lex is the intellectual one of the pair, highly intelligent, philosophical, deep over thinker, who over analyzes anyone and everything. Very much a part-time intellectual elitist, finding himself arguing about “Who shot first, Han or Greedo?” “Who was the best Doctor?” and other obscure geek lore. When Lex is at work, he dreams of anywhere else besides work. “Never his mind on where he was and what he was doing…” Maybe that is what has kept him sane all these years. “This would be a great job if it wasn’t for the dancers, the customers, and the management…” Ken, a former ex-jock whose sports career ended way too early, his first year of college. He often reminisces about the glory day as a high school and college football player, and the one “career-ending injury” that shattered his dreams forever. Over the years, Ken has become bitter with the opposite sex, after a failed series of relationships with a woman who has deemed “alcoholic, nymphomaniac, pill poppers, with daddy issues.” Ken now finds serenity in playing video games, collecting comics, and being a guild officer in an MMO.
