"I had no idea that (breasts) were such a big deal to America," Estes said. "All you have to do is mention the word 'breasts' and the whole world goes crazy."

*obvious* :)

I'm moving to Austin.
2002-02-08 08:43:23 AM  
You know, there are two things in that article that really stand out...

Police acknowledged at the time, however, that it's legal in Austin for women to go topless.

Proving, once again, that the Austin Police Department has it's head up it's collective ass. There are so many more important things for them to focus on here, setting asside the fact that the police don't make the actual laws themselves.

Tejas tetas!

OK half of those will be drag queens, so I believe I will stay home that night.

Nekkid Dallas in support of Austin...who's with me?
2002-02-08 09:27:13 AM  
Why? Most of 'em probably have better boobies than you're used to seeing.
2002-02-08 09:28:37 AM  
Your sisters and daughters are now free to be the whores they always were! Hooray! "Girls Gone Wild" video producers' way of life preserved! Hooray! Drunken college chicks now one step closer to street prostitutes! Hooray!

Is there a Mardi Gra web cam in Austin??

*waits patiently for Ouroborus to set one up*
2002-02-08 09:40:58 AM  

Hrm... well, they don't want to spend more than 30 minutes in the cold topless? I'd say just 30 minutes shows a lot of balls.

I know, I know, that was terrible. It's early, though.
2002-02-08 09:41:12 AM  
Tiggeriffic, yah think? Maybe Leslie will be there <G>

For those not from Austin, this is Leslie.

I submitted this last night, doo-dah, doo-dah
When the news was fresh and bright, o doo-dah day

(Yeah, I know. No one likes a whiner)

"All you have to do is mention the word 'breasts' and the whole world goes crazy."

Well, they are boobs...
2002-02-08 10:04:38 AM  
Keep waiting, JDX

Boobies are all powerful
2002-02-08 10:10:44 AM  
breasts are dirty, evil, and disgusting. we must protect our children from this scourge. if this behavior continues, children will think it is ok to remove their clothing whenever they want. next thing you know, people will be bathing with the lights ON!!

it is this behaviour that made god lift his protection over america on 9/11.
2002-02-08 10:14:49 AM  
I will help anyone here in Austin who wants to setup a boob-cam. Be happy to help run that sucker...
BTW, I will be video taping boobies again this year. Girls gone mild, live from Austin

boobies make my mouth water.

"Tickets or no, a previously planned demonstration at 11 p.m. Saturday at Sixth and Trinity streets, involving perhaps 200 women lifting their shirts, will go on as scheduled.

"We want to protect our right to go topless on Sixth Street," said protest organizer Caroline Estes."

Just like George Washington.

Proof that the Austin police department is gay!
2002-02-08 11:07:27 AM  
I'm actually thinking of going to see the demonstration -- 200 sets of boobies ought to be a hell of a sight, even if they're not all big, firm, college girl boobies. What causes me to pause is the thought that those 400 boobies will be surrounded by a couple thousand boobs. Getting crushed in the crowd on Sixth Street is an interesting experience the first time, but not something I really want to repeat.
2002-02-08 11:16:15 AM  
To all of you who think you are gonna see nice firm college girl boobies down on 6th street Saturday, here is a taste of what you will really see. This is the woman who organized the protest:

And I'm sure she has lots of friends.

I may go down there to check it out myself. Hopefully some of the 6th street party girls will be going topless and not just the protesting hippies and drag queens. As all you austin farkers know, there are alot of hot babes down there every saturday night to party in the bars. We need to go encourage them to participate in thier right to wear no shirt. I had no idea there were so many austinites on fark. Cool.
2002-02-08 11:43:33 AM  
Interesting that Austin is the most liberal town in Texas and it's also the place where your individual rights are being gradually eliminated. Calling conservatives fascists is very common but doesn't fascism require a great degree of government control and isn't that also what liberals try constantly to accomplish.

Here in austin one of the morning radio talk shows is giving away a boob job for valentines day. To enter the contestants must go in and have a topless pic taken which is put onto the website for the listeners to check out.
A few have been posted so far. It is called the breast valentines contest.
The web site is

Thank God for bra burning feminazis!

"Interesting that Austin is the most liberal town in Texas and it's also the place where your individual rights are being gradually eliminated."

Examples? All I can think of offhand is the "right" to blow cigarette smoke in someone else's face at dinnertime. And who said anything about fascism?
2002-02-08 12:09:15 PM  
Albert -- you mean, "Thank Goddess for Political Correctness!" In Austin, the definition of indecent exposure is gender-neutral.

To paraphrase Dilbert, Political Correctness is like nuclear energy -- it can be used for good or evil, and you don't want to get any on you.
2002-02-08 12:24:15 PM  
Yeah, it's the ugly ones that protest (the feminists), but it will be the fine ones that flash! Was down on 6th, last night (Aquraium and Library) and got an early preview!

Will be heading down this weekend, and again on Tuesday (Sans wifey, of course!)

No argument this town is full of sandal wearin', taco rubbing, flag burning, liberal dykes, BUT...if you ever had ANY doubt as to the number/quality of FINE ASS WOMEN in Austin, TX, just head down to 6th on ANY Thursday night - HOO-ah!

2002-02-08 12:26:08 PM  
Hey Brotherlove
Actually political correctness sucks, that is just trying to make everything to f'n nice and anal retentive. Thank goodness FARK is not politcally correct or it would not be as much fun. I like it when you can do or say anything you want and fark everyone else if they do not like it. If they don't like it, don't listen to it or read it.

Sounds like it was fun, I read in your bio you like bobbies. ha ha ha (I believe you had a typo)
2002-02-08 01:26:14 PM  
That radio show website is kinda cool, check out:
Domination Station

It's some sort of Howard Stern-type thing...
2002-02-08 01:30:25 PM  
I was watching "Cops" the other night and saw this cop say "Some people think that we're here to do the 'serve and protect' thing. I say we're here to keep society in line."

Typical cop mentality.

In other news, around where I live, showing your breasts is not only perfectly legal, it's positively encouraged!
2002-02-08 01:36:19 PM  
Boobies aside, is it just me, or are they now just using this as an excuse to show their breasts and get on TV? The cop said they were NOT going to be ticketed. So, they're going to protest...what exactly?

"We want to protect our right to go topless on Sixth Street," said protest organizer Caroline Estes.

Goodie for you, since it's already protected. In the spirit of things, I'm going to go organize a protest to protect my right to walk down the sidewalk in the middle of the day.

I'm all in favor of 200 women in a crowd with a mass exposure of boobies, but the whole idea seems...well, rather stupid now.
2002-02-08 01:55:20 PM  
Double Helix; you obviously have not been reading fark in a while, first the flashing of boobs was to be banned on that night, now it has been brought out that that is changing the law in Austin where it is always leagal. The protest was organized before they said they would not be ticketed.

Mudarm; It is much better than that woosey named Howard Stern.
2002-02-08 02:09:07 PM  
Bad_Sinfluence Thanks for the catch!

(Freakin' hilarious)

Flyingsquirrel; I saw pantera at a private party at a warehouse on kramer lane about 10 years ago, they had all the free beer and jello shots you could handle along with girls having banana eating contests(that was great), and all kinds of smoke flowing freely. There were lots of boobies exposed that night.
