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

I think public nudity laws should be based on aesthetic value.

We convene a panel of people from various backgrounds, of various religions, sexual orientations, and political ideals.

Whenever there's a case of public nudity, this panel would decide whether it was a misdemeanor, a felony, or no crime at all based on the panel's consensus regarding the beauty of the person who exposed themselves. Also considered would be comedic value, taste/tact, and other factors that might alter the perception of each individual case of public nudity.

If the perpetrator looks like this:

Then it's probably a felony.

If the person looks like this...

Then it's a minor misdemeanor.

And if they look like this:

Then no crime was committed, and we publicly thank them.

/Mostly kidding

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.

Wyalt Derp: Management of the Empire State Building charged in the suit the pictures [...] damaged the landmark's "reputation as a safe and secure family friendly tourist attraction."

Why are bare breasts unsafe? Are her nipples big enough to poke a child's eyes out or something?

No, but I heard she can dial a rotary phone with them.

"We were doing a social experiment," said Henson

Whelp, now you're in the middle of a legal experiment.  I doubt the company can prove damages of a million dollars for this, but they might prove a heck of a lot more than this guy wants to pay.

If I'm not mistaken, it's legal for women to go topless in New York City, isn't it?

unchellmatt: 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.

There are a number of us Americans who don't farking get it either. First of all, why is every offended person's immediate response something about being 'family friendly', and secondly they're just boobs. Who the fark cares?

I know more than you: So by visiting the Empire State Building and not breaking any rule, contract or law makes you liable to be sued for a million dollars. Well, I know one place I will never in my life visit.

It's lame anyway. I was there. Once. It's just 'Yep, tall building with fenced in balcony.'

here to help: x23: "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'.

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.

That's like the Dane Cook level of slut shaming.

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.

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.
