It's A Menace! A Crime Wave!

Lucky for us, Law Enforcement Officers* of Easton, MD are on it whenever evildoers flout the Law: Man Arrested For Public Toplessness.

I feel ever so much safer now, really I do.

W. T. F.?
* I don't actually blame the police here, they didn't come up with this goofy law. It's simply too difficult to set the properly-askew Dragnet tone without mentioning them. "The story you have just seen is true. Only the names were changed-" except I didn't.

It's the "Cops Rule", named for the TV show.

The guy with no shirt always goes to jail.

I think it depends on the guy; would you really want to see someone like Michael Moore running around topless in public?

Why are man nipples okay (usually) but woman nipples are not?

Personally, I'd prefer not to look at anyone's nipples. Keep your pink bits to yourself, please.

My tattoo makes it look like I have a shirt on most of the time...

And quite a nice one at that, Less!

Breda, Bob G: I don't so much care. Fat people, boynips, girlnips, ::yawn::. Seen 'em already. I do reserve the right to point'n'laugh at really outré examples and to be repelled by the repugnant. All part of the fun.

GeorgeH: Made of win! Of course, now that you have pointed it out.

The law was probably written that way to avoid a discrimination defence by a woman.

In Ontario it is legal for both men and women to go topless.You rarely see or hear of a woman exercising her rights.

Well ... in Port Dover, yesterday ... which was, of course, Friday the 13th ... there were several ladies baring their tops. I did have pictures ... but they couldn't compete with the 13,000 motorcycles that were also there. Guinness World Record for a one day motorcycle rally.

You and Tam would have loved it.

Oh ... this happens every Friday the 13th. Make the trip some time.

I would George, but there are two obstacles:
1. I'd have to be "socially naked" to enter .ca; couldn't even have a fiream in my luggage. I won't visit Illinois 'cos they won't let me carry.
2. I'm not at all sure I'd be able to get back into the 'States. They were kinda sticky about it last time, what with me havin' no passport an' all.
