  1. Never wrecked a vehicle, killed anyone, got arrested, got naked, started fires or got a tattoo. However, I was once young, immortal and very stupid.

    But by the grace of God go I.

  2. “I think I’d rather party with 1/3 of the girls.”

    See, this is why you always lose the pissing contests. Right here is where that sorta of thing starts.

  3. Drunk and naked in public? Never.

    OK maybe once.

    Or twice.

    No more than 3 or 4 times.


    Unless you count the time I skinny dipped in Maryland and a tour bus of Japanese tourists with cameras filed out. I had no idea I could dog paddle that long. But I wasn’t drunk. As I recall.

    Definitely less than 10 times. Definitely.

  4. Sooo next time you’re drunk look at the two people you’re with…if they’re still wearing clothes….guess what..

  5. does skinny-dippin’, doing ‘the nasty’ in the water, on the beach, in the woods, in the back seat, on the playground (and various playground equipment), the ball field, the park (any park .. local, state or national), the side of the road, driveway, lawn, concert event, carnival, sporting event, balcony, boat, train, airplane, etc. count?
    … I need a ruling clarification on ‘public’ …….. thanks

  6. Sounds like you lived a full life Moo, um, how do you spell your name again? I’m not Celtic font shopping.
    I’m busy doing naked River Dance. It ain’t pretty.

  7. “Snapping turtles. You west coast peeps don’t know about snappers.”

    That’s what you think. Plenty of dangerous Pink Snapper out here on the West Coast.

  8. This is why I don’t get drunk. With those odds, there’s too great a risk that others would see me naked, and that could traumatize an innocent person for life.

  9. That’s why I love the iotw crowd. Serious, logical and pragmatic, silly and irreverent, tender and loving. Then BFH paints a portrait of your dog. No place better. Hit the donate button. Best investment ever.
