Saturday Speedo's @ Walgreen's

I meant to post about this a week ago, but I've been kind of busy, so please forgive my tardiness.  Anyway, last Saturday (the 11th, maybe?) the Richardson boy's Lacrosse team was having a car wash up at the corner of Coit & Beltline. I was driving Southbound on Coit when all the sudden I see like 15, gangly, white dudes standing on the corner where Walgreen's is in Speedos.  They were holding up poster boards proclaiming their fundraiser and "dancing".  I get that they were trying to be funny and certainly not sexy (at least I hope that's not what they were going for, or else they were failing miserably), but nonetheless it was pretty gnarly.  Many of them were all squatting down, rears facing the street, waving their butts around in the air. I tried to get a pictures, not for my own viewing pleasure, but because I knew there would be those of y'all that wouldn't believe me, however, I decided not dying as I crossed the intersection was more important.

Anyway, just curious what others thoughts are of this...funny or crass?

I could see how it would be a slippery slope eventually, where the girls teams could be arguing for the same swimsuited car washing attire, but perhaps I am wrong.

What do y'all think?

  1. I am in agreement with you. We now live in a time when a woman sports reporter(with her breasts handing out and her jeans so tight that they look as if they were painted on) can go into a football teams' locker room and the guys get in trouble for whistling and making sounds of sexual appreciation, while she claims that she did not mean to be provocative. (although she couldn't even pronounce the word correctly)Whether they meant to be funny and not sexy is not the point: the point is to dress decently.

  2. Before you mentioned it, I was already comparing it to the bikini-top-and-dukes outfits that appears to be the uniform for our [collective] daughters at carwashes.

    I'm not going to put my foot down and cry "exploitation" but that kind of thing does worry me a bit. What, really, is the product being sold in these scenarios?

  3. And what does these boys' (or girls') daddies do at home on their computer when mommy isn't home? Some of the time they are looking at PORN-straight and gay! And YES they are - if you don't believe it you are denial. A little bit of hypocrisy coming out of your mouth. Your kids are no worse than you are. At least they are doing it to raise money for a cause and not to get their rocks off.

  4. No denial here, sir(?), just flagrant generalizations on your behalf from what I can tell.

    You're assuming all 'mommies and daddies' are lacking as much will power as you are. But I can guarantee you my house is 100% pornography free. Not that we're not all humans and tempted, we're just not all WEAK humans who give into that temptation.

    So speak for yourself, anonymous.
