With all of the doom and gloom I figured we all needed a diversion. Saw this quick item on the local news and was almost disappointed after finding out the real reason for the event but stil think this is funny as anything.

"There were complaints about the mooning, women lifting their tops and a couple cases of complete nudity..."

Worthless without pictures.

Wait, I take that back.

I've shot the occasional moon in my day. And a couple of 'fruit bowls', to boot. LOL

What really amazes me, after the size of the mooning crowd is that their website mentions that the trains will be crowded with people who want to be on the receiving end of this.

I wouldn’t mind the multiethnic ladies that live in the several towns along the NJ Transit Northeast Corridor line would flash us (well, maybe Smell-Caucus would be an exception, unless you like flapjacks).

you are right. my bad. ... i will try to find it within me to chuckle a bit more about the decay of the united states. its all one big joke, isnt it? lighten up. we might as well have a big laugh on our way to becoming a moral trash heap of a nation (or in this case, California). they are just a bunch of drunk people out in public exposing themselves. something the Conservative forum Free Republic can really get behind.

Go peddle it over at D.U. you would have more in common with them over there on this

I’ve posted pictures of a ? 20 year tradition and many of the mooners are waving at the Amtrak passengers.

Jeez, I’m a Texan, and I wish we could do something like this. Well, we actually do, we moon teams’ buses we’re about to compete against (football, track, baseball, basketball) as they pass us on the road or we pass them.

You are either a. unhinged, or b. unaware of this very American pastime.

Yours is a keeper. Superb catch in perception!

But I would like everyone to remember this number so next time the left brags about their “multitudes” they got to a protest we can say “so what. 8,000 people showed up just to moon a train.”

I'm coming to your defense, AmericanInTokyo.

It just boggles my mind that 8,000 people did this, that this is an event to do this type of "coming out" behavior.

Mooning someone you know and who knows you is one thing (vis a vis, an "inside joke"); mooning total strangers is indecent behavior.

But then I really must share my bias - I remember the advent of the "flashers": Naked men running across campus, or across a town. It just gave people more of an excuse to do "naked protests", naked "bicyclists for Piece", and making it harder to take children to events around the SF Bay Area, and because some stupid exhibitionist(s) was demanding all eyes be focused on them.

8,000 people mooning a train. Unbelievably dull and stupid.

While gas is high in price, more trains will be used to transport goods around and across America. This mooning thing is quite a handy tool for the "anti-Americans" to promote.

Really, the train should sport a banner which says: "Okay, whoop-de-doo, we've seen your faces, now show us your A**s." Enter stage left, the Democrats to protest any clampdown on the mooners' "freedom of speech".

Yes, give this matter just one thought, add some years' of experience, and this event is just unbelievably predictably stupid.

And one more thought. I grew up with the community bath. I know you know what I'm talking about.

When I arrived in SF in 1965 and the Love Children were about, being topless, bralass, or nude -- I didn't see freedom, I saw exhibitionism.

And the more the liberals talked about "sexual freedom" the more I saw perversion, not freedom.

And the same perversion believers think they are on about "sexual freedom". They are not. They have sexual issues which they blame on "America". When the fact is, they are the "sexual problem" of America.

So, fast forward to hot-tub loving Marin County. It wasn't about the zen or sensuality of a good soak; it was about being "trendy" with one's naked body. Communal baths in Japan are for a very sane reason. Community "soaks" in America are for "diversity" in the pursuit of "trendy-ism".

if this is the future of public behavior in the United States, on the contrary, it brings even MORE "doom and gloom". where are people's public morals. this is not legislating morality in the bedrooms. these people are in PUBLIC. there are children on those trains, and maybe foreigners with their first visit to America.

this is not the America i want.

Look at those saps in the face and listen to them gurgling in drunk blissfulness. just wonderful. wonderfuly country, ain't it? god bless the Orange County sheriffs and other local law enforcement.

Well, we'd might consider doing a statistical analysis of the responses on this "conservative" thread to determine the actual number of Democrats vs. "conservatives" in support of the mooners.

Orange County is largely, majorly "conservative" and votes Republican. Maybe these mooners are "conservatives" in post or moon only. Maybe the mooners came by train to the bar from liberal areas JUST to give Republicans and conservatives a bad name.

But I do admit, this mooning behavior is one I find thoroughly anal retentive. Drunk or not. Figuratively and literally. lol.

Get drunk, show off your naked butt. Wow, so fun. Really a hoot. I bet the toilet is feeling jealousy. The shower and bath are stress free. The underwear and panties feel the boot of oppression and tyranny off their waistbands for the mome. Every pair of Levi's are shouting "freedom, Freedom!" The bed sheets are breathing cleaner air for the mome.

And the train riders, well, oh yeah, who cares about them.

And the bar's 5 urinals in the men's room, and the 3 stalls in the women's room, never have overflow "issues".
