I will now do my best to politicize this thread. Please follow along:

1. By not arresting these men, the authorities are complicit in encouraging public indecency.

2. This is the same liberal "look the other way" thought process that is behind gay marriage rights

3. Once gay marriage rights are passed, then it's every man, woman, bi, trangender and transvestite for themselves

4. Once the transvestites have rights, it won't just be some guys on a triple dog dare wearing thongs, it will be an army of saggy, old J. Edgar Hoover-looking schlubs at every Wal-Mart checkout, all wearing floral halters, thongs and red fark-me pumps because employee dress codes will be Constitutionally unenforceable.

How did I do?

Actually, that #4 does creep me out.

Where did the Wal-Mart welcome lady put the smiley-face stickers?

jaymzzz, that's what I was thinking too. I'm like, "What? Every damn customer at the Wal-Mart in my town wears thongs! And that's if they've got shoes on at all!"

I welcome our 35-year-old thong-wearing overlords. Next year, all y'all will be wearing them.

The fact that actually had on underwear while shopping at Wal-Mart is progress in my opinion.

If their nads were covered, it wasn't indecency.

After a guy dropped his pants while wearing a thong the Massachusetts Supreme Court recently declared fat, hairy, male asses to be indecent too. Well, they didn't say "fat and hairy" but you know they were thinking it. Commonwealth v. Quinn. The court is majority female.

PhotoCindy: that made me snort coffee. Now I'm going to have to change my adult diaper. This is going to be a good day.

Triple dog dare you!

I wear thongs exclusively...

but no guy ever should!
2004-07-29 10:23:38 AM  
It doesn't work on women. They take themselves far too seriously. The sort of people who would call the police over something like this.
2004-07-29 10:24:38 AM  
Personally, I think this is pretty cool.
You people have no humor!

Walking through Wal-Mart in thongs - ha - a classic I say!

Would have gotten tossed in court anyway.

That's taking it beyond indecency - I like the sound of American justice! Does Judge Judy do the tossing? I'm guessing she would do it almost casually, with a hint of disdain. I'm going to stop now as I am frightening myself.

Surprisingly, it has been my experience that in the case of victimless crimes at least, cops are pretty lenient when you're just outright honest. A year or so ago I got a new car and was opening it up on the interstate, seeing how it felt up in the triple digits... Cop pulled me over and asked why I was going 110 in a 70mph zone... I just told him... it was a nice day, I just got the car, there wasn't any traffic to be seen, so I wanted to see what it could do. He tore up the ticket and said since I was honest I just got a warning. And that's not the first time I've gotten off with just a warning for doing victimless things (fireworks, etc). If you try to snow them, they get pissed.

But then again, if their thongs are riding up that day, watch out.
2004-07-29 10:27:28 AM  
Then again, the young girls around here wear not much more than a thong usually anyway, would they have gotten arrested?
2004-07-29 10:30:16 AM  
How can a thong be indecent exposure, when you're allowed to wear them in public at the beach?

Also, the concept of "indecent exposure" just smacks of a lack of seperation of church and state. Look at how the definition of indecent has changed over the years as people have become less religious. It's clearly linked.
2004-07-29 10:32:14 AM  
if it was a "triple-dog" dare shouldn't there have been three men in thongs?

There's a sign in all Wal-Marts that says "Shoes and Shirt Required".

My friends and I have thought about pushing the envelope by wearing shoes and a shirt , but no pants : just our undies. Wearing a thong might have been taking the joke TOO far.

I think perhaps that while this shouldn't have been illegal , it still qualifies as icky.
2004-07-29 10:39:57 AM  
Wow! This is hiarious!
Good for them! Why not? Nothing like ridiculous, spontaneous dares to add some spice to the day.

Honestly, there's a part of me that believes I'd do the same thing if I were triple dog dared to do it... and that frightens me a little.

I think they deserve the HERO tag.
2004-07-29 10:40:55 AM  

where's your sense of adventure?
2004-07-29 10:44:05 AM  
As cool as they keep the local Wal-Mart airconditioned , I think my sense of adventure would have withdrawn completely inside of me like a frightened tutrle.

Errr...turtle that is. I need more caffine
2004-07-29 11:05:40 AM  

I don't find them weird, they stop blokes pissing on the street etc. i actually think they are a great idea, especially at night.
2004-07-29 11:13:23 AM  
Why the hell are blokes pissing in the street? We only do that in the woods here.

Brains wins the thread via lowball rules.

...and thus I stand by my taunting of Weaver95 with a triple dog dare this weekend...

szmike--Whats up Tiger Lily?
2004-07-29 11:18:46 AM  
the triple-dog-dare-defense....why didn't I think of that when I was on trial for robbing that taco stand...?
2004-07-29 11:19:51 AM  

Strong beer, I assume. and a very high density of population.

Here I am.

Sorry LaughingGremlin, you're gonna need a couple of new tiles for your patio.
2004-07-29 11:28:18 AM  

I agree but I think that the laws on thongs are state to state and that they are not legal in many states even at the beach. Although personally I agree that it would be stupid to charge these guys.


I wish the Walmarts around here were cold. They're all hot as an oven. I guess that's the price you pay for living in the desert though.

"Yes, your honor. I shot the sherrif. But it was a quadruple-dog dare!"
2004-07-29 11:58:41 AM  
i thought the "2 thongs don't make a right" dont make a right comment was hilarious.

has a feeling these 2 guys are fat hairy and scary looking hillbillies. no one would have complained if they were in- shape, attractive, etc.
2004-07-29 12:02:32 PM  
Next time I get caught bobbing for apples, it's the triple dog dare excuse for me. Hmmm... works everytime.
2004-07-29 12:06:04 PM  
They should have just triple dog dare infinitied the other party. Can't get any higher then that.Then whoever was the other party would have the problem.
2004-07-29 12:17:38 PM  
Better two dimwads than apologies for those who haven't eaten yet today.

Damn , man! Monica really put on the pounds!!!

It puts the lotion on its skin, or else it gets the hose again.
2004-07-29 12:29:16 PM  
Don't you hurt my farking dog!

-Ummm, was she a big, fat person?

-Yes, sir, she was a big girl.
2004-07-29 12:38:01 PM  
While most internet news is lame because there are no pictures, in this case I'm glad.

jame_gumb: You are a bad, bad man. Ewwwww.
2004-07-29 12:45:05 PM  
It's hard to tell from jame_gumb's picture, but that woman is actually sitting on/engulfing a sofa.
