All The Good Protests Occur Where I'm Not

Dear Charles:

I thought your offer to provide a "
pictures of downtown Charleston" section to your typically issues-oriented blog, The Charlestonian, was a terrific idea. It's a wonderful way to promote the city which, as you point out on your blog, has it's share of "quirks, oddities and absurdities."

Plus, Charleston gets all
the good protests!

I hope you'll consider adding this photo to your new picture section. And if not, I'll keep a copy for myself. You know, just as a reminder why it's A-OK with me for the Mayor to double the user fee in order to work downtown.

Jennyville has a great post right now about how she got all excited about the new PETA advert with David Boreanaz, as she was hoping to see his, um, root vegetable.

Alas, he was wearing a suit.

Darn, I miss all the good stuff too. I expected to see someone in the bushes behind them with a cell phone camera.

Mr. Chinchilla said...

I heard that.

I'm amazed at the number of impressionable young attention whores who can't wait to shed their clothes in public since they have a 'cause' that says it's okay to do that. Besides, the powerbrokers of the world won't fight PETA that way. They're happy for the free porn. PETA = the Hustler of non-profits.

Buzzardbilly said...

...not that there's anything wrong with that :)

Chris: Yep, it was a rally terrific post. And for a second, she convinced even me.

Redzeppelin: I'm not sure it's a cell phone the guy in the bushes is holding. [rimshot]

Mr. Chinchilla: How cool to see you! This event was right up your alley, eh?

Buzzardbilly. [ahem]...Yes, uh...[cough] sure...I couldn't agree more.

One of them has better legs than the other.

The Film Geek said...

Yeah...and if you look close enough you can see a hint of shorts just beneath the sign, too. But I like to dream, man. I like to dream.

Karan said...

They weren't wearing shorts, they were wearing flesh-toned panties. I saw them from the back right before I stopped to ask them if their heels were leather.

[In my best Homer Simpson voice] Flesh colored panties...mmmmmmm.
