Who wants to swin with a bunch of naked old men in Milwaukee?
2003-12-18 12:39:55 PM  
I swim naked in Old Milwaukee.

I hear the Catholic Diocese of Milwaukee gets a volume discount at this place.
2003-12-18 01:41:07 PM  
Now that's just nasty.

It shrinks?...

Swimming naked in Old Milwaukee...there's a thought. I guess you'd never be able to tell if anyone pissed in it.

Incorrect usage of "begs the question" make baby grammer nazi cry.

The bigger question is: who wants to be in Milwaukee in the first place?

They need some sort of Grandfather clause.

Like, if you are old enough to be a grandfather, you have to wear a bathing suit.

Naked old men scare the shiat out of me. Like, in the locker room they are all naked and walking around talking to people whilst naked.

Ewww. Hopefully science will do something to prevent oldness. Like in that documentary Soylent Green.

Nude swimming embiggens even the smallest man... unless the water is cold.
2003-12-18 01:49:25 PM  
A vast ocean of titillating crap is available on TV and the internet but old men swimming naked is a problem. Sometimes I think my country is so twisted and warped that the laws of physics are about to break down.
2003-12-18 01:50:16 PM  
Sorry I've been waiting to use that word for days now.
2003-12-18 01:51:47 PM  
Great, now where will I get my daily dose of old man peener?
2003-12-18 01:52:30 PM  
Why isn't there a pool so that women can swim naked?

Old naked men get their own lap pool? That hardly seems fair.
2003-12-18 01:52:41 PM  
Imagine the poor people at the bottom of the pool in their scuba class. They look up and see the 60 year old version of a Nirvana album cover. It'd be enough to make you choke on your air supply.

upsetting some members

When asked what he wanted for Christmas, Christopher Lowell replied, "embigguns!"

Laverne & Shirley? Oh, those aren't men? Damn my eyes.

Leeds37 So you're saying even the nights are better?
2003-12-18 01:54:45 PM  
So when the clubs started admitting women they did away with the nude swimming? I would think that'd be the point when they'd make it mandatory.
2003-12-18 01:55:36 PM  
It reminds me of that one time when this 60 yr old man was going down one of those water slides and lost his swimsuit and I just sat there staring at his big hairy balls...golly geez I wanted to lick 'em
2003-12-18 01:55:46 PM  
And reflect that whatever fortune may be your lot,
It could only be worse in Milwaukee.

You are a fluke of the universe.
You have no right to be here.
And whether you can hear it or not,
The universe is laughing behind your back.

I got married at the Milwaukee Athletic Club. I shoulda checked out the pool first, might have saved me a divorce.

"Incorrect usage of "begs the question" make baby grammer nazi cry."

As do subject-verb disagreement and misspelled words.
2003-12-18 01:59:56 PM  
Judging from the age and attactiveness of most nudists, I can honestly say it would not upset my member.
2003-12-18 02:02:44 PM  
Carrying a suit is a burden!?!? What the hell is he wearing, a scuba divers suit?!?! I may not wear a Speedo, but my little ole swimsuit could fit in the pocket of my jeans.
2003-12-18 02:04:01 PM  
Hmmm, sorry bump, ya lost me there...

You obviously haven't been out beyond the Field Five parking lot at Robert Moses State Park on Long Island (Fire Island). The vast majority of people at the nude beach had no business being nude. Eeeewwwwwwwww

And no, I wasn't nude - wouldn't want to subject anyone else, much less myself, to that!
2003-12-18 02:06:43 PM  
Don't be sorry brianincbus, embiggens is a perfectly cromulent word.
2003-12-18 02:08:33 PM  
Raises. It raises the question. If it begged the question, then the reason for banning nude swimming would be because nude swimming is illegal.
2003-12-18 02:09:26 PM  

I thought the same exact thing when I read that!
2003-12-18 02:10:40 PM  
It's not a burden for me to carry my suit, it's a burden for my suit to carry me.
2003-12-18 02:11:56 PM  
So pale, old men in Speedos is less frightening?
2003-12-18 02:11:59 PM  
Can we turn this into a "why the men's club was forced to allow women members in the first place" thread? Pretty please?

I am not a sexist. I just like this debate.
2003-12-18 02:12:29 PM  
Milwaukee? Athletic? Am I missing something here?
2003-12-18 02:12:32 PM  
the golden rule of official nude beaches is:
the people you want to see nude, aren't.

this is of course an American rule. In Europe the topless beaches have pretty standard bodyshape distribution because it isn't a big deal.

but with swimwear fashion as it is anymore, there really ain't much of a difference.
2003-12-18 02:13:55 PM  
Please. These farking old guys make me nauseated. Seriously. They hang out in the locker room and in the showers all naked, joking with each other, talking about young girls they see working out or about how the price of coffee at their favorite diner went up a nickle. They shoot the shiat, shave in the steam room, hog up the sinks, drop bombs in the toilets, put poweder and shiat all over themselves and the locker room floor... old people should just die already.
2003-12-18 02:14:10 PM  
"Incorrect usage of "begs the question" make baby grammer nazi cry."

Like I really give a shiat. ;-)
2003-12-18 02:20:12 PM  
At my club there was a guy yammering away at me in the locker room while he was naked. Like it was the most normal thing in the world. I asked him to go back to his locker and stow his "gear".

How farking bad must you stink before getting into that godforsaken reeking shiathole of a lake smells like a good idea?
2003-12-18 02:21:05 PM  
Hey, icon4dx - define for me the age at which 'old' begins. I expect your suicide no later than your birthday on that year.
2003-12-18 02:21:38 PM  
no pics ????

Kidding. Just the typical post when there is an article about naked women.

Two words my friend: SUMMERFEST, BEER

i wish i didn't read the part about how some of the nekkid old dudes like to eat their lunch by the pool - while still nude.

eeeeeuuuuwe yuck! naked old white dudes eating?!?!?! kripes that's nasty. and you know it has to smell like chlorine in there. what could possibly be so good to eat you can't wait to dry off, put on your duds, and get away from a chemical smelling public pool?
2003-12-18 02:25:58 PM  
Say, my band is playing at a basement party (I know, lame as hell, but we'll be in the area.) in January. What's there to do on a Saturday in Milwaukee?
2003-12-18 02:26:13 PM  
perisoft If you remember WWII, you're old.

I say this because I used to go to the YMCA. I quit going there when I walked in to the locker room, and saw that this ancient dude had lost his bowels in front of his locker. Then, as if he owned the place, he tried to get some one on the staff to clean it up!
2003-12-18 02:26:18 PM  
I go to a pagan gathering every month at a location that has a nude pool. Completely coed, zero problems.
