Naked Door-Answering

2002-01-17 17:37:42+00 by Dan Lyke 7 comments

Ziffle passed along a Georgia lawmaker wants to make it illegal to answer the door naked (State Rep. Dorothy Pelote who claimed to have psychic visions of Chandra Levy). Now I don't know about y'all, but the only people it'd "protect" in my neck of the woods are door-to-door beggars (excuse me, "people soliciting for poorly documented charities") and missionaries, sometimes the two get conflated, so surely we can take this woman down on separation of church and state issues?

I don't think it should be illegal to answer the door naked. Just indicative of poor taste. I get embarrassed answering the door in my bathrobe.

I always check to make sure it's an attractive girl, first...

I suggest that missionaries and beggars are sometimes confused rather than conflated.

That's priceless, Pete! I can't help thinking how great it would have been if she'd done it in the nude...

Hah, too true, Diane. I saw that on Fark and thought it would be appreciated over here.

Nawww, Pete, they'd be confused if they were separate entities, they're conflated if they're missionaries panhandling for poorly documented charities.

And oh, my, that link is a reason to start subscribing to magazines again.
