Thing Me A Thad, Thad Thong Offither....
A group of young men who stripped down to thong underwear and formed a roadside pyramid to stage a protest when President Bush was visiting Lancaster County in July 2004 have lost their civil rights suit against the Pennsylvania state troopers who arrested them.
The protesters claimed in the suit that they were attempting to recreate one of the infamous photographs of abuse in the Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq, and that their simulation of nudity was therefore essential to their message.
But U.S. District Judge Paul S. Diamond found that the troopers had probable cause to arrest the protesters for “open lewdness” because they “appeared to be entirely naked” and “the thin material of their tight-fitting thongs unmistakably displayed the contours and movement of their genitals.”
Honestly, we don't know what is up with these dangerously activist judges. Personally we can see all sorts of public policy reasons for encouraging such vigorous demonstrations of an active and engaged Left.
On the otter heiny, we find this sort of thing way too disturbing.

The chocolate thong reminds me of a deeply offensive but utterly hilarious "Larry the Cable Guy" routine: "Edible Underbritches."

Actually I was looking for that penguin thong jpeg from an old post and googled this one up by mistake. I almost died laughing (or maybe it was shock) when I saw it.

And where was the Genital Mocker? Hm? Who was pointing out their adequacies or lack thereof in the packing department? What the helk is a protest good for if you aren't going all the way with it?
