P.S.: Thong Man’s Back … As G-String Man!

Tom Torgerson/Buetler & Associates was laughing so hard just now when he called that I barely could understand what he was saying at first. Seems he was on the water on the north shore (about 100 yards east of the volleyball courts on NIC beach) when he noticed a guy walking toward him for a dip, dressed only in a bright-orange G-string. Tom described it as a “Banana Hammock.” And said the guy was pretty gray. Could it be Thong Man returning from the ‘90s? Thong Man created quite a flap re: his near nudity before the City Council decided, on a 4-2 vote, I believe, that he wasn’t violating the law by showing off his thonged behind on City Beach. Just good taste. The new incarnation covers even less. Mebbe HBO should transform into a G-String Man finder, so you’ll know which areas of the shoreline you should avoid.

Question: Do you believe it’s appropriate for individuals to wear G-strings on local beaches?
