Boobs 4 Bourbon St. Brit, Justin Ross, wanting to help out with the Katrina recovery came up with a novel idea to raise money. Use what NOLA is known for best. Boobies. So far a treasure chest of $14K has been raised [via here's my byline]

Oh, man. I promised myself that I wouldn't get wood at work anymore.

New Orleans is known for a lot of things more than boobies. As a matter of fact the whole moronic "show me your tits" thing is a fairly recent phenomenon (in the old days, if you had to ask, you weren't going to get to see any). Better things to know New Orleans for would be: food, music, booze, gambling, losing yourself... so on and so forth.

Communist. There is nothing moronic about naked boobies. They are proof that there is a God and that he loves us.

Yes because everyone who reads this obviously VERY grave, serious thread is now immediately going to forget everything about NOLA except for boobs. Lighten up, sport.

Also keep in mind this is a UK student's view of New Orleans, which might be skewed towards some of it's mainstream misconceptions.

Isn't that who the boobs were for in the first place?

After all, that's who boobies are for.

There is no "off" position on the "look at more boobs" switch in the straight male mind.
posted by squirrel at 10:56 AM on September 21, 2005


Well, it can sometimes be adjusted to the "look at more ass" position.

Ha ha: "treasure chest."

Mine is jammed in the "look at more mid-lumbar region" position and it's freakin pissing me off.

Oh yeah, I had that problem for a while. Try putting your hat farther back on your head.

er, amend that to -In our culture... There is no "off" position on the "look at more boobs" switch in the straight male mind.

It is not an absolute amongst all (straight) males everywhere. So... just think of how controlled we are.

well, while the FPP might be a bit bland, i'm lovin' the comments so far. keep it up!

(hooray for boobies!)
posted by NationalKato at 11:24 AM on September 21, 2005


So true, edgeways. It's funny how the cultures whose mores require cloaking breasts are the most boob-crazy. Gives fuel to the argument that depravation breeds mania--and that mania (e.g. puritanism) leads to more depravation. Free the mams!
posted by squirrel at 11:27 AM on September 21, 2005


squirrel, that's why I appreciated the novel Ferengi stance on female nudity on ST:TNG -- if the female form is covered, the male gets a little too excited wondering what's hidden from view underneath; if it's visible, ehhh, no big deal.

What? Raise money with linksandsnarksforbourbonst.com? I'm in.
posted by MiltonRandKalman at 11:34 AM on September 21, 2005

I don't ever want seeing bare hooters to become "no big deal." I like the thrill I get when I catch a glimpse unexpectedly. You can't take that away from me.

(of course, your "exposure to bare bosoms will diminish breast mania," approach could be a clever ruse to get more women to flash their funbags. You're a genius. Carry on)

I'm donating a picture of my boobies, as soon as I can get ahold of a camera. Funny, playful, and totally in the spirit of NO, imo :)

To think that MeFi has contributed, in some small way, to the baring of more breasts just makes me... *blink-blink* excuse me, I'm getting a little choked up...

The only problem with this is that on the internet, boobies want to be free.

They had strip clubs in the French Quarter open for two days (SFW) before the evacuations began again for Rita.

can't we just post the boobies on MetaFilter? i mean, do they have to go to that site in order to be used for the powers of awesome?
posted by NationalKato at 12:26 PM on September 21, 2005


jon is on fire on this thread. I've LOLed several times.

I wonder if I can talk my wife into boobies for charity? I doubt it.

What are the pictures like in the male gallery, I wonder? To the ladies get full frontal, or just man boobies?

(I hope it's the former. Eww, man boobs.)
posted by kosher_jenny at 1:09 PM on September 21, 2005


Man boobies.
There are 11 dude pics, only two are 'buff' and they are from the same guy.

That is so repressed. How small is your closet?

...you should have your account details sent to you within 24 hours.

24 hours!?! You can tease me with the promise of boobies and then make me wait a whole day! That's just cruel.

Ehm. When I got my account, it took less than fifteen minutes after sending them a picture. Maybe they're speeding the system up and you guys'll have it soon?
posted by kalimac at 6:37 PM on September 21, 2005


Now that's a teasey two-step, kalimac. There's no way to know which boobies are yours, short of begging. Are you gonna make us ask 20 questions?
  1. Is it up now?
  2. Is the URL written on your skin or a sign?
  3. Are you wearing a mask?
I, too, received prompt 24 minute service.

posted by If I Had An Anus at 6:57 PM on September 21, 2005


Snerk. I was simply coyly waiting to get a request, like the good li'l (half) Southern lady that I am.

1. Yes.

2. Skin.

3. Nope, no face. I think it's posted under boobs1.

My first mefi meetup is going to be interesting, I'm sure.
