Seven days too long? Try a MONTH!

Good afternoon, Netizens...

I think I may be onto something. A news item hot off the presses from Reuters is interesting to say the very least.

According to Reuters the White Cockatoo Resort in Queensland, Australia will hold a month-long, nude "anything goes" party to combat an expected economic downturn, media reports said on Thursday.

"Tough economic times call for stiff measures." That is what the owner of the resort,Tony Fox, the owner of the White Cockatoo resort in Mossman, in tropical Queensland state, actually told the Courier-Mail newspaper. One might think it would have taken a few hours to remove his tongue from his cheek, but perhaps not.

Proclaming that “anything goes” for a month, perhaps one can see why religious leaders are somewhat outraged.

But the local Mayor, Val Schier, stated she was not opposed to the event, providing no laws were being broken.

She was quoted as saying, "It is tough economic times and as long as it is with consenting adults, then there is no problem."
