Most people look better with their clothes on.

/gynecologist who sees a lot of naked women every day.
/I look better with clothes on and a bag over my head.

Most people, sure...but University of South Florida people?

I do security for a large event at a nudist colony every summer, and as such have become friends with many of the residents of said resort. I go down a number of times a year and will say, without a doubt, that the vast majority of nudists are freakin' hideous. But that's what makes it fun, you don't have to worry about how you look, and it's kinda nice to chill out at the pool nekkid. Usually don't have to worry about any "reaction" downstairs either, since there's some nasty people there. You do learn the color of everyone's eyes though, since you stare at them in the eyes when you're talking to them.

/also hands down some of the nicest, warmest most inviting people I've ever met.
//just sayin'
///would love to play strip poker with some USF girls though.

Seriously, this is just a ploy to get naked young women to be down with naked old guys. They're only inviting couples and single women to this poker tournament.

I can see the nudist colony's advertising for the kids:

....of said resort. I go down a number of times a year

Maybe not the best phrase when referring to a nudist resort...

/just kidding with you
//someone made fun of a TFer the other day and got sponsored
///luck be with me?

Time to invest in spray on abs!

holy shiat, my old job -at paradise lakes resort- got on Fark.

If you want to know what the low down is i can tell ya- having worked there three years.....

1. Lots of swingers-
2. Average age is 40's -50's
3. Yes you can work naked...in some areas.
4 No you do not have to be naked.

Well you wouldn't want it to be a sausagefest would you?

Sounds kinda like a Wiccan/Pagan "Clothing Optional" event. The people who wind up taking their clothes off are the LAST people who should.
2006-01-26 08:35:07 PM  
Hm. Drunk, horny, naked frats and co-eds plus naturist (i.e. "naked isn't sexual") folk in the 40-plus range.

Yeah, that can't possibly go badly either way around... and even worse if, as noted above, the older folk are swingers.

I can imagine the chants of "MILF!" and "GILF!" right now...

/"Professor Simmons?"

I work for a nudist resort.

So I am really getting a kick really .

Some of you guys are very good at making it sound like you know what you are talking about.

But trust me.... You don't.

I think you just want to make yourself sound smart, when in reality you dont know what you are talking about.

This is how bad info gets passed around.

If you dont know about the topic....Dont make yourself sound like you do.

Cuz some Farkers belive anything they hear.

Here's the table I'll be playing at:
Tyra Banks
Jessica Simpson (easy mark)
1980's Debbie Harry
Buck Rogers' era Linda Gray
/best poker table evar
2006-01-26 08:48:46 PM  
Yeah, about that.

That sounds awful. I predict 5 fat guys and maybe one or two messes with lasagna belly.
2006-01-26 08:54:47 PM  

Sarcasm? I wouldnt want to tag my self as obvious by pointing out that youre doing the same thing.
2006-01-26 08:57:26 PM  
From what I have noticed, most American nudists (99%) are fugly. And by fugly I mean just nasty. Think of it this way: most hippies in the 60s were nudists. And they still are.
2006-01-26 08:59:10 PM  
Are you new around here, FallDog? You're obviously not up on your Fark cliches, at least. (And before you ask, that whole cliche got started in this thread, in the post at 01:24:21 PM in that thread and several others after it, and has pretty much been going nonstop in these sorts of stories ever since.)
2006-01-26 09:02:49 PM  
a nudist resort is going to have a bbq AND serve beer. i can foresee a fire and some burns. call 9-1-1 right now
2006-01-26 09:13:44 PM  
FallDog got pwn1d!
2006-01-26 09:30:51 PM  
FallDog is a moran
2006-01-26 09:34:37 PM  
You are so cute, FallDog.

2006-01-26 09:35:31 PM  
I partied with some nudists out on Orcas Island in the San Juans last summer. A bunch of college kids were there at the hot tubs. Some were average and some where real hot. But, we all got along and had fun.

/being nekkid is cool
//ski nekkid

Given looks of most nudists, winners get to ask losers to put clothes back on

Submitter actually means, "Given looks of most poker players, winners get to ask losers to put clothes back on.
2006-01-26 09:42:29 PM  
I think it's high time for nudism to be subject to Internet law. Which is, if no one would pay to see your webcam, the clothes stay ON.
2006-01-26 09:59:59 PM  
Falldog is my hero... you've restablished my faith in the humor of cliche's...
2006-01-26 10:12:58 PM  
they should just run a free tournament, get as many people as they can, shuffle seats as much as possible, and make it all-nude.

then sell seat covers for $300 a pop.
2006-01-26 10:14:42 PM  
Some of us have better things to do than read through pages and pages of asinine comments to try to keep up with the cliches. I only click on the message board link once in a while so I missed that.
2006-01-26 11:22:10 PM  
Speaking of cliches, can someone please point me to the origin of the O RLY owl phenomenon? I know the www.orlyowl.com site, but it didn't explain what started it all...
2006-01-26 11:31:15 PM  
I am pretty sure O RLY owl was started at either at ign.com or offtopic.com
2006-01-26 11:33:34 PM  
Actuall I am probabl wrong. Wikipedia knows all.

Prizes will include gift certificates for the resort, T-shirts and logo items
Wha?? Irony?

Playing poker naked could add some interesting variables.

"What is a Poker Tell? A tell is any habit, behavior, or physical reaction, that gives other players more information about your hand."

USF has over 30,000 students, with a huge percentage of them being hot girls. The resort is about ten miles north of the school. This should be a cool event. My best guess is that there will be a pretty decent crowd.

Another "resort" in the same area (actually right across the lake) has an annual 5K run that is very popular and always on the news (with the obligatory blurring of privates) Pasco County (directly north of Tampa) has more nudist resorts than any county in the country.....which is good.

I wonder if I can finagle my alumni assoc. status into a spectator pass?
