Just tell me where to enlist! This is the greatest injustice in the history of the world, and it MUST be erectified!

(yes, I know erectified isn't a word...)

Where's the pics of the protesters? You know there are some hotties in there.

Nevertheless, commissioners voted 6-1 for a new law that requires people cover one-third of the buttocks and one-quarter of a woman's breast, in an action timed before Biketoberfest, Oct. 17-20.
Of course, this is such a carefully worded law that it would never cause any problems for the "decent citizens of Daytona Beach". Sheesh. This is a perfect way of ensuring that your town loses tourist dollars.
2002-10-03 11:07:30 AM  
Stevarooni, your right about the losing tourist dollars. Back in the eighties I lived outside of Ft. Lauderdale. They started passing laws, and even built a wall down the center of the strip to keep people from crossing the street. All of these changes were for the good of the spring breakers that would come down. Guess what the kids did. Went to Dayton. I remember just before I left Florida in 87' everyone wondering what happened to all the college kids.

Any warm places in the US where you can go on Spring Break and still see good ol' fashioned thongs or boobies?
2002-10-03 11:10:12 AM  
I only ask because I'm trying to figure out what I should do for Spring Break this year...
2002-10-03 11:54:31 AM  
Well, I can only speak for myself, but I hope that includes men too! (man boobies, yech!)
2002-10-03 12:53:39 PM  
Another reason Florida should just be an clothing optional state!

OBB: South Beach (FL) is always quite entertaining during spring break...
2002-10-03 01:18:41 PM  
Daytona needs a REGIME CHANGE!
2002-10-03 01:19:42 PM  
All you guys are gonna act all outraged. Predictable. But you can't ensure that all thong wearer's are nubile 21 year old girls. Pcture the 45 year old, overly tan Mother of 3 and see if you still wanna fight for the right to thong.
2002-10-03 01:19:55 PM  
One third of the buttocks and one fouth of the breast?

Who came up with those ratios and how will they be maintained?
2002-10-03 01:21:31 PM  
Nudity, particularly women exposing their breasts, has been an issue

Good GOD naked breasts that would be terrible for someone to see and they'd probably go immediately to hell. Just becuase the country was founded by retarded puritanical idiots doesn't mean that we still have to behave like it's the seventeenth century.

In Spain on the beach girls play volleyball topless. This is a symptom of a healthy culture. VOLLEYBALL. TOPLESS.
2002-10-03 01:21:57 PM  
Daytona is a godforsaken hole.
A blemish on the shaft of America's wang.

Only one good week to go week.
2002-10-03 01:22:14 PM  
WHY!? Oh Dear God, WHY??!?

all boobies are good and must be allowed to breath.

would it be ok to cover the most irrelevant quarter of the booage in question? leave some nice nippage exposed?
2002-10-03 01:22:17 PM  
Show me a 45 year old, overly tan mom in a thong, and I'll show you a mid-life crisis.
2002-10-03 01:22:37 PM  
2002-10-03 01:22:49 PM  
eh, farkistan could work unilaterally, or we could go through the UN (then the US would have to do the actual work)
2002-10-03 01:22:57 PM  
Your highness, the Royal Farkistani Air Force, is prepped and ready for invasion, SIR!

2002-10-03 01:23:23 PM  
if we called it `butt-floss' instead of a thong would that be legal?
2002-10-03 01:24:06 PM  
Daytona sux as far as spring break, black college reunion, bike week, biketoberfest, and don't forget speed week. Traffic blows and everyone there is trying to raise hell. No fun, IMO. Go to the Keys or St. Augustine

I agree with Dllsgrlz: If I was certain that only young, attractive women with perky breasts would be showing them, I would be outraged. But, I've been to bikefests, topless beaches and the like in Florida and it's usually old, overweight and extremely unattractive women who are the most inclined to remove their clothing.

2002-10-03 01:27:26 PM  
Come to Dallas and I'll show you 20 of them at one pool. My gawd, our country club had to outlaw them for that very reason. When I was in property mgmnt. a few years back, I lost count of the 45 year old, overly tan Mother's of 3 I had to chase away from the pool. Totally disgusting. Right up there with guys in Speedo's. Just because it's made in your size, doesn't mean you should wear it. But, that theory escapes many.

That's it. Terrorists have officially won now.

Please pick up your things and go home.
2002-10-03 01:27:47 PM  
So this means when people visit Florida, they will have to bring clothes next time?
2002-10-03 01:29:07 PM  
Did anyone actually read the article? It doesn't even apply to the beach, just the city, where all the older biker chicks are on the back of their mans bike wearing thongs and chaps, and trust me they are not 21 and toned.
2002-10-03 01:29:37 PM  
It has always been illegal there. A friend got married there and at the local strip joints, I was fairly intoxicated, sitting at a back booth staring at the skanks. I thought one looked really bad, it seemed she had no nipples like a burn scar. Upon closer inspection, they had (and continue to have) to wear pasties. Not really topless and bottoms had to stay on. We left and went and found some crank instead. (Not man crank)
2002-10-03 01:29:46 PM  
This law will require very carefull enforcement. While you anarchists are massing for your assault, I intend to do my part for law and order by carefully measuring every bit of nubile tit and ass I can find to ensure compliance.

Last time I wore a thong on the beach in Florida it was pretty painful. I think I had the thong on backwards.

Private Crackmonkey reporting for duty sir!

Someone photoshop some patriotic WW2 posters related to this.
2002-10-03 01:32:46 PM  
Crotchless undies and peekaboo bras both cover an appropriate amount of breast and buttock under the new law. seems a more than appropriate way to protest

Horrifying. Like Magda in "Something about Mary".
2002-10-03 01:34:52 PM  
Another example of sexist politics. DOWN with the Daytona Beach council. I feel like marching down there, flashing the council and then telling them look, get over yourselves. Your politics should not sexualize my body or that of any other woman. If I or any woman wants to walk around topless or in a thong ANYWHERE in public, it should be permitted.

P.S. My aunt is a tanned mother of three (oldest kid is 10) and she still has almost the figure she had when she was 18. She just turned 40. So heh the stereotypes don't hold.
2002-10-03 01:35:44 PM  
Ugh, I was gleefully thinking of the nubile 21 year olds and there you go! Magda! Eeeek!

Planning on posting any pictures, AnonyMouse???
2002-10-03 01:41:39 PM  
I don't have any comment,i just want to see if i am with ya'll yet.
2002-10-03 01:42:11 PM  
They should limit the prohibition to women with fat asses.

Why fat assed women wear thongs I'll never understand, nobody wants to see their roly poly mountains of cellulite.

Time to sing along!
(To the tune of There'll Always be an England)

There'll always be a Farkistan,
While there's a Cliche Kitty.
Wherever there's Adm'ral Ackbar
Beside a Mustard Guy
There'll always be a Farkistan
While there's a busy thread.
Wherever there's a large flamewar
A million marching to the bar.

Beer and boobies,
What do they mean to you?
Surely you're proud
Shout it loud
Farkers awake!
Wil Wheaton too
We can depend on you.
Freedom remains
These are the chains
Nothing can break.

There'll always be a Farkistan
And Farkistan shall be free
If Farkistan means as much to you
As Farkistan means to me
2002-10-03 01:47:17 PM  
The streets will flow with the boobies of the unbelievers!

Goddamned shiite Southern Baptists from Duval County Fla have commenced taking their policies south! They ruined the titties and beer fun in Jacksonville years ago.

Drew, give me some time and see if I can't "borrow" an Aegis Class Destroyer from the shipyard and meet y'all over there. Can't get a carrier for air support but a destroyer aint bad. I would post a photo, but I aint got any HTML skills.

I just got back from the range last week. I'm ready to go.

I'm laughing because I suck at Skeet.

Just some gratuitous thong pics.

Prolly NSFW.
