I'd have to see these 'wonderful' breasts before I can render judgment.

If you want to find America's biggest boobs, they are none other than the Empire State Building's management team.

OMG! Kids saw boobies!  They are SCARRED FOR LIFE!

A cell phone?  Yes, all serious / real professional photographers use cell phones to take their planned photo shoots.

"observation deck was full of tourists, including children" I don't think the kids would have any problems with the boobs. Really just the adults impressing morals unto them.

actually, there's an entire art-underground where they not only take arty-shots with cellphones, but do all the editing on-phone. http://plus.google.com/+MichelleRobinson_michmutters/posts

This should in no way be seen as a marker for myself to remember to inspect said magnificent mammaries once I make my escape from this infernal cube farm... Nossir, not that at all.

Fine, I'll GIS it.

You'll have to deal with the slideshow - you brought this on yourself.

Of course, NSFW.

2014-01-14 07:19:36 AM  
Yeah, that's really worth a million dollars. Some tits... things that roughly half the human race has. Perish the thought that some people might have seen a pair of them.

WTF is wrong with Americans?

Management of the Empire State Building charged in the suit the pictures were produced "for his own commercial purpose" and damaged the landmark's "reputation as a safe and secure family friendly tourist attraction."

Get over yourselves

OH NO!!! You mean CHILDREN may have seen BREASTS?!?!?! Heavens!

I'll never understand that shiat for as long as I live. I grew up with parents who were / are artists. I saw paintings, drawings and pictures similar in nature to the ones in the article from when I was pretty much, well, alive. Only it was the early late 60s early 70s, so more sagging and lots more bush.

ANYway, I don't get this "There were CHILDREN there who say the breasts" shiat that comes up all over the US. Who farking cares? No wonder so many kids are farked up about their bodies and sexuality! From day 1 they're told they should be ashamed of them and that tits are bad.

No. Tits are awesome. They should be free, let them flap in the breeze! Ditto wangs. Just let that shiat be.

Care chases, graphic murders, fights, that's all kosher, but tits? That's just out of the question.

/no, I'm not a nudist
//would never dream of subjecting an unsuspecting public to my pale, pimply ass
///but really, get the fark over it already

I know it's a typo, but I really think we should start calling them that.

i don't understand why he is being sued.

on a side note, those are not worth a million dollars.

Technically, breasts are for children.

And no one has taken their family up the Empire State Building since.

No, but from the looks of it, in 10 years she'll be known as "Saggy Maggie".

Oh but they can have weddings up there. Talk about life ruining. Some kid sees that. Decides he'd rather marry than become and Astronaut Doorgunner for the First Martian Killer Brigade. Twenty years later, he's over weight, working as a programmer analyst for a contracting company and the love of his life is complaining about the new house the Mansfields bought out at Costa Plente Estates. The kids hate him and he has 5 bosses wanting e-mail updates but he can't e-mail them all in the same e-mail because they don't want to acknowledge the fact that there are five supervisors for one contractor.
One day, he's sitting in his cube, filling out a paper form for a new chair when the guy in the cube next to him says "Did you hear about the First Martian Killer Brigade? They took the Martian capital of Akron!* Three cheers for the First Martian Killers! Hip hip hurray!! Hip hip hurray!! Hip hip hurray!! "

He says under his breath "Those three cheers could have been for me." Then he goes back to looking at a buggy RPG IV program written by a senile AS400 programmer in 1992.

(*) City was stolen by the Martians and memorialized in a Pretenders song.

Do your boobs hang low?

very mildly NSFW. If your boss/co-workers would get offended by fully clothed animated boobies in a shirt don't watch. Otherwise it's all good.

Oh look. Another "photographer" who specializes in convincing attractive women to remove their tops because, yanno, art. Yeah that's the ticket.

It all started because some awful, horrid, filthy women were actually exposing their own children to the sight of their bare breasts. Their BABIES. Imagine the horror. Tiny wee babies forced right up against the sinful bare nipple flesh of their own mum! Forced to touch it! With their mouths no less.

Well that disgusting behaviour needed to be clamped down upon tout de suite.

"as 30-year-old photographer Allen Henson captured the image on his cell phone."

does not compute.

and after seeing the pics i am certainly no more convinced the label should be 'photographer'.

So if I visit the Empire State Building and my fly is accidentally open and some idiot posts a photo, I could get sued. Good to know. Think I'll avoid the Empire State Building on my planned upcoming visit to NYC. Suggest all other Farkers do likewise.

Just a creeper taking advantage of dumb hot chicks.

Ladies... you do realize there are FEMALE non scummo photographers in the world you could offer to model for if you are looking get some exposure, right? Hooking up with a dude like this raises the odds you'll just get typecast as another porn skag.

No. The person who took and distributed the photo would get sued. You'd get arrested and tossed on the sex offender registry... because penises are scary.
