Your Daily Nude Apologizes
We've been trying to keep the Daily Nude feature going here, but it's been tough. You know what they say about depressions causing lower hemlines? It seems as if the current rotten economy has draped a hijab over public nudity. Even the brief bare scenes in Watchmen are causing people to walk out of the theater. And though the story of the Malaysian legislator who had to resign over nude cellphone pictures is all over the internet, the images are hard to locate. It's gotten so that advocates of nudity in video games have to plead their case to the public; we expected by 2009 "Grand Fuck Auto" would playing in every basement den in America. So here with our apologies is an image from the First Nude Sledging Championships in Braunlage, Germany, found at the Seaway Blog.
