Letting it all hang out in Vermont

It's officially spring in the small town of Brattleboro, Vermont. The trees are sporting leaves, lawns are turning green, and Bill, Mary and Crazy Old Ted just walked by the downtown diner sporting nothing but a smile! In what's apparently becoming an annual tradition in this small town, which has no ordinance against public nudity, located in this small state that also has no laws against same, the locals are letting it all hang out.

Local youth began congregating in downtown parking lots sans clothing last year, starting a local trend that some people aren't too happy about. Some are just plain offended by the public display while others are worried about the town's image.

"How do you want to be viewed as Brattleboro?" asked the Rev. Kevin Horion. "We want to welcome families with small children." Nudists could pop up anywhere, he said. "I am concerned we don't know where they are going to strike."

I'm not entirely sure what a nudist "strike" would entail. . .perhaps this video will offer up some pertinent information on the subject:

Thing about nudist, you don't have to worry about them having any hidden explosives.

I've heard that nudists mostly "strike" for better insurance. After all, nudists aren't covered as much as most people.

Wouldn't a "Nudist Strike" consist of people who would otherwise run around nekid piling on clothes to get their way?

If so - why is the Dear Rev. so worried?


Brattleboro sounds like a good, healthy town with great values!

I lived in a college town when streaking became a fad, and streaking was so common for a while that people didn't even run anymore. The streak might be a stroll. Not that shocking after you've seen a few!

I did it myself waaaaaay back when... that was the first time I got drunk in my life. hoo-boy! It was fun in a really stupid way.

A bit of irony here. It was on this date (May 18) in 1974, when the song, "The Streak" hit #1 on the charts!

Parson - What if they shoved them up their ass?

Robert - Remind me to slap you.

Pam - Truth is stranger than fiction.

Sew - SO many other "important" issues on the table and all. . .

AZ - Who doesn't! =)

Blueberry - Wow! A former wild child in our midst! ;)

Robert - Fate's right hand. . .I need to see if there's a video for that (Rodney Crowell).
