What would you say to a flasher?

Washington State University has a flasher on the loose. See story.  Police think he's been involved in at least six incidents.

My EndNotes co-author and I -- Hi Cathy -- were flashed by a guy years ago during our GU in Florence days. A guy drove by on a bike flashing away. On a bike. Don't try that at home!

When you're young, it's difficult to react with any amount of sarcasm or cool. It's so creepy. But we need to encourage older women like us to rehearse some witty retorts.

Perhaps start singing "Is that all there is?"

Because this should be a G-rated blog, I will offer no more suggestions on how mature women could respond.

But your suggestions are welcome.
