Naked Washington
January 27, 2005 9:02 AM   Subscribe

Naked Washington. The Boy Scout Memorial statues in Washington, DC always struck me as a bit odd. Why is this kid leading a naked man? Or maybe, better, why is a naked man pursuing this kid? Maybe if the guy from Naked Washington gets his book sold, we will all know. Meanwhile, it's available on CD.

Methinks the wrist on the adult male looks a bit limp.

What can I say? We're a nekkid statue lovin' town. Gives all those kids something to look at while they're bored on educational field trips.

Never fear. Saner heads prevailed.

Easily one of the worst memorials in Washington DC, and not just because of its odd composition. If Howdy Doody had heroically fought off a German platoon at Stalingrad, this is what his statue would have resembled. I don't think anyone tends to it either: it's a place of trash and dead leaves.

It's called NAMBLA and it probably explains most of the head scratching.

This book deserves a publisher!

CafePress, Lulu.

Of course, there's also the "wardrobe malfunction" on the naked lady with the blindfold in front of the Supreme Court.

And - just thought I'd note that I have nothing to do with the owner of this site or his quest to have his book published. These days, it's important to declare conflicts of interest -- and lack of them.

I wish all you bitches would get over the nudes. Geeesh you'd think we were born wearing galoshes.

it really is very nambla--and doesn't quite send the message they were hoping, i don't think.
