A ban on bikinis at the city pool is expected to be revised, ending a short-lived prohibition on the popular two-piece pool attire.

In keeping with socal_parrot's essential 'educational' theme, here's a rare photo of an undercover operative in a highly classified 'bulletproof metallic' bikini, apparently taken during a hazardous mission

Early bikinis were extremely effective, in that they provided yet another essential purpose for animal skins and so brought meaning to the lives of otherwise unhappy creatures..

Indeed. That is one of the finest-worn bikinis I've seen in quite a while.

Note however, that bikinis require occasional adjustment...

As a demonstration of the mathematical principle that "LESS IS MORE", we also can see that the string bikini has very little to recommend it as a shield against the sun... so we hope that these girls have good sense.

I could not agree more. In that spirit, another bikini.

Bikini History, cont'd

Bikinis played a crucial role in America's Civil War, as brave soldiers from both sides worked tirelessly and in astonishingly innovative ways to win the day.  Here is a photo of a covert Confederate soldier, taken immediately after a sea insertion onto a Northern beachhead, where she is engaged in an 'information gathering and morale assessment' mission.

Well, I suppose then it would be necessary to also include the contribution of the Union soldiers as well...

I dunno, looks to me like that "insertion" had the effect of making that soldier take a leak.

Establishing a beachhead might require reconnoitering for a while...

Who does that!? I never heard of such a disgusting thing. Have you seen it? Maybe it is just a saying but for it to be a saying it must have happened. People just don't make up stuff like that.

I had a co-worker years ago who had an expression for something not being received well or being unpopular, sort of like "that'll go over like a lead balloon". It was: "That'll go over like a turd in the punchbowl."

Most of us (guys, natch) thought it was hilarious, but he said it one time in a meeting and one of the women workers was so grossed out (she must've been very good at mental visualization) that she had to leave the room and toss.

It is unknown to me whether this fellow had actual experience with turds in punchbowls, but knowing him, it's not out of the question.

I personally find pissing in the punchbowl grosser, because you wouldn't necessarily be able to tell just by looking. Whereas with a turd, it's immediately obviously that something just ain't right about that punch.
