Sybarite: Yes "immodest" as in a suggestion of the outline of the female form.

I was expecting junk or at least some nippleage.


How about a NSFW warning!  You can sort of, almost make out, an artistic representation of a female breast.

It reminds me of the people around here. They included a picture of Michelangelo's David in the paper and the locals hit the roof. One man wrote in saying "I don't know who this David is, but God would strike him down for such immodesty and sin." and another wrote in about how the paper should feel ashamed for showing their children gay pornography.

I didn't know if I should laugh or cry. North Carolina is odd in places.

BitwiseShift: Sounds like the Manneken Pis in Flemish or le Petit Julien in Belgian French in Brussels. A city landmark. Has more costumes than LIberace.
Just don't Google it after a case of Stella Artois with the water running.


There's a big, white statue of Christ on the cross at St. Anselm's Church in my neighborhood. Every time I walk by it, I want to put a t-shirt on him that says "FREE HUGS."

Still not news, but funny: the locals dumbfarks  take to dressing it up to cover the naughty bits do dumbfarking things.
Facepalm: the city now requires a permit to dress the statue is filled with dubmfarks.

And prudes: everybody already knows that you have genitals that you like to use for sexual pleasures. Get over it already.

Back in the 70's I was volunteering at the Stamford (CT) Museum and Nature Center. There had just been a big sculpture show at the Whitney and a number of well-known artists had been left out. The gallery director had the idea of a "Salon des Refuses" and a number of big name sculptors sent pieces.

One of these was Duane Hanson, who sent a hyperrealistic fiberglass self-portrait in the nude. Damn that thing looked real. We set it up in the main gallery and people almost immediately began to complain. The sculpture was moved several times, ultimately ended up in a back hall leading to the terrarium room, but people were still upset. Seems their lil darlins had to walk right past naked Duane on their way to view the turtles and frogs. I stopped by a few weeks later and the sculpture was still on display but had been fitted with a large strategically-placed maple leaf.

SquiggsIN: Just a another reminder that this nation was founded by prudes with no sense of humor who were so prudish that Europe was "marginalizing" them.  Fast forward to we the descendants and that explains the religious fundamentalism and idiots with an overdeveloped sense of modesty.


Those prudes you've so summarily have lumped together with frothing disdain have also founded the most powerful country on the planet.

Go take a bong hit and masturbate away some of that angst.

Random Anonymous Blackmail: I am still trying to figure out why a man would want 4 wives. Do the positives truly outweigh the negatives?


Why a man would want a wife is a mystery.

Why a man would want more than one wife is a bigger mystery.

neversubmit: Bloody William: If one of your main concerns is things being "immodest," you have the shiattiest priorities and standards in the world. Why does it always seem that human decency is inversely proportional to "moral" decency?

This!

On the flip side I'll bet there's some freaky shiat going on in that town.

Seriously. I was wondering what was immodest in that. I was expecting a grecian/roman style statue, at the very least.

No way I would fap to that. Sharp knees. Rusty, even.
