FTFA: "My opinion is that the police have thought 'the guy's not going to give up so let's have a think about it'.

He's just lucky he didn't receive a harshly worded letter.

I don't get it. Where does he keep his wallet? Does he have to take off his backpack everytime he needs to use a credit card? I don't get it.

He said: "To conform with everyone else is the easiest way but when you conform you compromise your principles.

"I am not going to give up. Stay naked is the word."

If only there was a penal colony he could be sent where his behavior would be less problematical to polite society...

If his beard looks like that, I can't imagine what other things look like. I'd say that taking a walkabout in the bush is an understatement, in his case.

Why does he need a backpack that big if he doesn't wear clothes?
 
2012-07-17 03:28:02 PM  
He should just move somewhere that allows naked people.

You don't need a wallet if you always carry a coinpurse...

I've never found nudity laws to make any sense. I have to look at people's ugly mugs and deal with attitudes all day and they can be far worse than some unkempt bush. And it's not like nudity has ever harmed the psyche of children. Most of them refuse to wear clothes until at least 3.

I don't know, Wall Street appears to have the knack for that as well.

So did I read something wrong or is this in Australia?

Unless he broke the law so many times in the UK that they sent him to Australia and then they decided to let him to an awesome naked walkabout....

Aborigines don't wear clothes either and as Prince Charels said they will never amount to much until the start wearing ties.

Kramer: What kind of a sick lowlife would do a thing like that? You know those people, you know they're mentally disturbed. They should be sent to Australia.

Jerry: Australia?

Kramer: Yeah, yeah, that's where England used to send their convicts.

Jerry: But not anymore.

You mean a nice beach in Australia?

If you didn't specify " penal colony" I'd suggest the south of France.

Mr Gough has spent the majority of the last decade behind bars due to his determination to live his life without clothes.

Ok. at some point he should have said "self, maybe I could wear a loin cloth or a flap of cloth rather than wasting a decade in prison while I say I miss my kids and mother" I mean give me a break, principles are great but freedom is better.

stupid is as stupid does.
 
2012-07-17 03:47:40 PM  
And what, they let him be naked in prison?? I doubt that.

Yes but when he needs to do a poo all he has to do is sit down on the toilet, so it does balance out.

That and he might be able to simply stick the card to his body hair with a bit of velcro.

Only reason they sent them to Australia is they couldn't send them to Virginia any more. By the way the article says Perth, isn't that in the Cotswold?

So, um, could you like arrest only the ugly fat farks going around naked? Now that this guy is old and wrinkly, that's when he should be out of sight. He probably wasn't much to look at earlier, but now he's 10 years older and pasty. Yuck.

Generally speaking, the people with the most to be modest about, aren't.

I'm sure people said the same thing during prohibition, just leave the country go someplace else and drink. You like to smoke dope? Just move to Amsterdam. People just want to be free, and if they aren't hurting anyone else I say let them.

/would rather have to avert my eyes of a thousand naked ugly fat people then have to inhale the cigarette smoke of one person.

No worries. I am sitting outside on my deck in the shade in 100 degree weather listening to tunes drinking wine just thinking that I could get arrested and fired from my job and put on a sex offender registry if I simply wanted to sit outside naked.
