Nobody Wants To See That

Here's three signs you're doing too many drugs:
1. You dub yourself the Wizard
2. You attend events wearing wizard robes
3. You decide, while attending said event to doff your wizard robes (how would people then recognize you as a wizard? You wizard's staff?)
Don't get me wrong, I'm not totally opposed to public nudity, but there's a time and a place for it. Unfortunately, these proper conditions rarely occur, and so you're forced to see someone naked who would be best served leaving their clothes on. But isn't that always the case?
This is another example of the Idiocracy that we've become. Rather than go to see a performance by an artist, we're constantly forced to have to deal with selfish people who want to add their stamp to it, whether or not it spoils the performance for everybody else. When I go to a festival such as Coachella, I'm there to see the many acts on the line up, not have some asshole show me his asshole. Take your neediness and thirst for attention somewhere else. Or better yet, grow up!
being the father of two young boys, I know that when they are younger, they like to run around and flap in the breeze. Sure it's cute, but at some point in parenting, it behooves a parent to teach a child that, while there's nothing wrong with a little full frontal, people's right to not see your junk overrules your right to wave it in front of their face.
To make this a full piece of performance art, police at the event came along to taser the Wizard, thereby making it more entertaining for everyone involved. I know we're devolving into a police state where cops are ever more eager to taze people, but in some cases, I do believe it's justified. Just put your clothes on, dude. Nobody wants to see that.

Oh must of been a little chilly at the time judging by his johnson. ;)

Dusty said...

Either that or he's hung like a gnat!

It's not the size of your wizard staff, it's the amount of magic it carries!

Dusty said...

Yeah but Lew..ah..nevermind. ;)

The cops went overboard, however the guy was a friggin nutcase. He was black and blue the next day when he came out of his stupor wasn't he?

He seemed to be really into it, the whole drama, including being tased.

Still, since the cops had him under control, they should have just put the cuffs on him, thrown a shawl over his johnson and taken him away, instead of tazing him. But he didn't seem to mind.

Tazing can be fatal. The cops were wrong to do that.

I think that was a pretty ugly video... Not just that the guy's nudity was something that people probably didn't want to see, but also in that I think the tasering was not necessary. Scheisse...
