Hey subby, he commited his crime in West Frankfort, not Marion. He lived in Marion.

/not that the towns are really all that different

What's with all the naked driving lately?

Is there a trend I should know about, or is it just some guys trying to one-up each other?

Man 1: "I drove down Main Street naked!"
Man 2: "Aw heck, that's nothing, I drove down the entire Florida Coastline Naked!"

Why didn't the women just point and laugh?
I would.

All I can see in that headline is "female" and "relations" and that makes me horny.
 
2008-01-23 04:17:37 PM  
Shouldn't parents WANT their daughters to be interested in the genetalia of the opposite sex?

The wives and mothers have probably seen one at least once already.

It's when the kids aren't interested in the opposite sex that there's a problem, right?

Mine got in Dec 31... some farker beat me to submitting the story about the naked intruder that gets shot in Mankato, MN.

Doesn't happen everyday in this town.

THIS ^ and yea subby, West Frankfort was where the crude nude offended the prude.

We have to watch out for our women. A shock like seeing a naked man, while incidental to use men, could really cause harm to them. They are weak, and need us to protect them.

goalie_piggy: That's because his penis was smubble.
*sigh* no! bad!
that is not the proper use of that new cliche. the cliche isn't just smubble, it's words that have gg or bb.

Got to love West Frankfort. Used to tap a bi girl who lived there. good times.
 
2008-01-23 04:35:55 PM  
LOL this is also my home town. Luckily I got out after school. Don't forget Marion's motto is "Marion, the hub of the universe"

It should be "Southern Illionis, where people live lives of quiet desperation and angst."

In West Frankfort, it can be both! Amazing!

"He elected to get off the interstate (on the way home from work) in our town and drive around nude looking at women,"

Nobody else saw the irony in this??
 
2008-01-23 05:11:12 PM  
Well, I'm nowhere near there, but my wife would enjoy seeing a guy driving naked. A lot more than I would, in fact.

Used to work in Marion. Long, long time ago, in a small podunk TV station that broadcast from three in the afternoon until midnight.

Is Leonard Peltier still being held in the Marion federal prison?

I thought I would be the only person on Fark who has ever even stopped in West Frankfort. I am shocked to see 3 people saying they grew up there. The National Coal Museum was great.

Never lived down there, but lots of relatives in the area. Most of my relatives are either Jones or Wright.

Why would anyone notice someone driving a 2005 Hyundai four door??
 
2008-01-23 05:55:14 PM  
Seriously, I live in Marion. I was shocked to see this headline make it to Fark. I can confirm that this guy drove nudie in West Frankfort.

We would have beat his ass in Marion. And to all these towns being the same, Marion is 4 times the size of West Frankfort and home to a semi-pro baseball team.

Not that anyone else cares.
I do....and really, that's all that matters.
 
2008-01-23 05:58:57 PM  
I'm in Marion right now so I'm... screw it, I hate this place.

Make sure you pronounce that as, "Marrin" (rhymes with "Herrin").

FAIL! Everyone knows that a "bi girl" in WF would be burned at the stake to cleanse her of the demons.

Nope. Per Federal Prison website and Wikipedia, he is now incarcerated at the United States Penitentiary in Lewisburg, Pennsylvania.

At one time, I carried on a torrid affair at the Super 8 Motel in Marion.

I know. It says something about me.

It says even more about the sorry excuse for a man I was involved with.

How ya doin' Terry B?

So, what are the females in West Frankfort going to do for entertainment now?
 
2008-01-23 07:16:01 PM  
I've been reading Fark now for several years and I was excited to actually see somewhere so close to where I live finally make it to the front page. Then I realized what story it was and had an 'Aw geez, not this shiat again...' moment.

I work in West Frankfort and have to say this town is full of crazies. I work at a business on Main Street and watch them walk up and down the sidewalk all day long. It really didn't surprise me to hear this guy chose to act like a loon here, he probably felt like he fit in.

I was just thrown a loop to see that the town near where I live was on Fark. I thought this small area was totally off the map....

Crazy.

And I'm glad I was not there to witness this incident.
