The ones who really want to show it off, are the ones who really need to keep it to themselves.

How can nudity be obscene when you can look in a mirror anytime you want?
Odd logic.

I have black bars across my mirror at the right heights so I don't have to risk seeing any nudity whatsoever

Small town Alabama and a bunch of carnies.

You could count the teeth in that phrase on your fingers.

The Alabama carnies were sickened by the sight of so many naked women that were of no blood relation.

Sorry for the photos, folks.  Please come back for some free covid.

Bah! You take the sharp knees, I'll take the tick thighs any day. It's the company she keeps that's more concerning to me.

It's an issue that long predates COVID. It kinda predates showering, actually.

Oh, thanks so much! Back when Fark had the 2mb limit, I had this broken down into 4 separate gifs I had made with EZGif from the YouTube clip; it was the only way to get the whole thing to fit on Fark.

I deleted those a while ago after the limit increase, and I've always meant to redo it as one gif, but haven't got around to it yet. It's nice that I don't have to now.

These pictures appear to be from 1978.  The quality, the outfits, the hair, all of it.  WTF?

Did you miss the part about "Alabama"?

Clay city officials posted a public apology Thursday morning for a risqué photoshoot-a freak accident-that took place at family carnival the night before.

They accidentally put on lingerie for their photo shoot? They accidentally stumbled into a carnival during their lingerie photo shoot?

It's Alabama. You want that shiat as blurry and vaseline'd as much as possible.

Damn, I was hoping this was a new trend in carnival rides: for $10 you get five minutes of taking pictures of a scantily clad carnie.

/this sort of 'ride' would pull in some money, yessirie

Dude, they just got color last year.  Most of Alabama is still in black and white, so HD resolution is still a long ways off for them.

And to our American visitors, you're not going to see this, but we're going to be taking as much of your data as possible and writing it in a white board on the outside of our building.

Obviously, mirrors are obscene!

(Yeah, I can see no reason nudity should be considered obscene and I can see no compelling state interest to justify indecent exposure laws.  I can, however, see a justification for laws prohibiting sitting nude on public seating--nudists sit on towels for good reason.)
