Just sayin’.

And, to prove the point, by telling a German “joke,” I’m the straight man!

It’s like Mark Twain said: A German joke is no laughing matter…

An American woman and her husband are on a train in Germany. She sneezes, and someone says “Gesundheit!” She says to her husband “Thank goodness someone here speaks English!”

I would definitely consider living there – the vibe is so nice, the people, the mountain setting. Who knows, if I ever pull up stakes here, and I won’t even quibble if they keep their nudity indoors!

But as @Spin says, I hope they’ll prominently display their bouncing balloons during the soon-to-be yearly Siberian Revile Wedding Festival! @Spin, when you said Krasnoyarsk, I thought you sneezed in Russian!

Accomplished haiku maven!

I’m in NY, no evidence of that yet, so maybe I’ll just ask some people on the street if they’re interested.

I was in Brattleboro, Vermont last week, a fun funky town which had a nude march some years ago, because there was no law against it. The town quickly got upset and banned it. It’s funny, our little puritanical country.

But this time, no joy, although I heard a young woman on the street say that she was going to “pull them out” at a party. Maybe it was a Siberian Wedding Party!

Lovely brides whinnying down their options on the bridle path. Suspension of nudity laws when the right chest is visibly suspended. Gulags re-purposed as luxury resorts… let’s go!

BG, maybe you actually meant that they were going to revile their wedding day?
