The Weekend Newds 8/25/07

  • Naked Power: What's up with nude politicians?
  • GOP Nudist: a 77 year-old lifelong nudist is coming under criticism from Democrats for his role in the Arizona Republican party.
  • Fashion Police: An Atlanta councilman has declared war on "low-rider" pants.
    Mr Martin's plan, for which he hopes to gain support in a series of public meetings at community groups and churches, will receive its first official hearing next Tuesday at a meeting of the city's public safety committee.

    There, Mr Martin will recommend that “the indecent exposure of his or her undergarments” should be illegal in a public place, in the same way as sex and the exposure or fondling of genitals. It would be punishable by a fine.
  • Weenie Roast: The Nude Geezers of New Mexico are having a cookout to promote their risque calendar.
    Len Self, proprietor of The Miner’s Chuck-wagon (75 years old and one of the geezers) said, “I’ll cook free hot dogs for everybody that shows up and most of us geezers will be here to sign the calendars.” Madrid is a much-visited tourist stopover along New Mexico’s scenic Turquoise Trail. Self is presented in the calendar wearing cowboy boots, playing a washtub bass and seemingly levitating his cowboy hat.
  • Deadly Shame: An Indian teacher committed suicide following a botched police investigation of a cellphone video taken by her students showing her nude in the bath.
  • Happiness Quotient: Creative Loafing takes a trip to Caliente Resort and loves the experience.
    We're not claiming that if you get naked all your problems will disappear -- but we do believe that many of your insecurities will. At Caliente, adults play unabashed like children, devising their own pool games using floats and rubber balls, spearheading cutthroat matches of nolleyball and letting it all hang out at Jack's karaoke in Si Como No, where, to combat nervousness, you have to imagine the audience dressed. Most remarkably, they grin their faces off, no matter what happens. When they spill drinks, there are no clothes to worry about staining. When it gets chilly, they wrap towels around themselves. When a thunderstorm attacks the tiki bar, they tear off the towels and dance in the rain.
  • SOB: In Nashville, it's legal to have group sex at the Tennessee Social Club, but it's illegal to get a lap dance at Christie's Cabaret.
    What separates a business like Christie’s from a place like the Tennessee Social Club? Just three letters: SOB.

    Under Nashville’s Sexually Oriented Business ordinance—which began being enforced last year—any strip club or cabaret must comply with a rigorous set of guidelines that limit everything from a dancer’s proximity to a client (three feet) to the required height of a stage (at least 18 inches.) The SOB guidelines also require that dancers register with the city, have a criminal background check and get fingerprinted.
  • Nude Awakening: Jerry Harke has spent the last 40 years photographing naked women.
    He photographs naked women hanging from rafters, naked women pushing strollers, naked women perched on horses, naked women stretched catlike on boulders and branches. Harke’s lens captures images that are angular, black-and-white forms and ones featuring bubbly, cheetah-printed lingerie models, but one thing remains the same: It’s all about the female form.
  • Cleared: Two young women in the UK who lifted their shirts in front of a closed-circuit camera were arrested for "outraging public decency", but were cleared at the last minute before facing a trial that would have cost taxpayers $15,000.
