Lord love a “guy racks up thousands of dollars in strip club charges” story, for the horrible puns and outdated reporter lingo alone. Is there any living non-tabloid reporter who has ever used the word “jiggle joint”? I feel like the Daily News and Posts’ style guides have cigars champed between their teeth.

Anyway, this guy sued the Hustler Club because he was too dumb to not get charged $28,000 in drinks and dances, and the suit has been tossed and now must pay his bill.

William Ilg’s lawsuit — claiming that he was fraudulently billed at the West Side jiggle joint in 2011 — is a bust, too.

Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Manuel Mendez tossed out the suit, in which Ilg alleged he was served too many drinks, leaving him “no longer capable of conducting financial transactions.”

When Ilg discovered $28,109.60 in credit card charges for a night of pleasure he couldn’t even remember, he demanded a full refund.

“There is no duty upon (Hustler Club) to protect plaintiff from the results of his (voluntary) intoxication,” Mendez wrote in a recent decision. [NY Daily News (Headline: "What a Boob", classic)]
