Also in Florida Billboards

posted by on March 31 at 12:34 PM

Apparently, it’s illegal to show nipples in public in Florida. This even goes for male wrestlers, as seen in this Orlando billboard for a WWE show.


Chalk one up for equal opportunity censorship.

Weird. They look like Ken dolls.

Not nearly as disturbing as the nippless centaurs in "Fantasia".

fantasia... pro-wrestling... they are all fairy tales.

God that poster is gay...even without nipples.

So was Horsey's Saturday editorial cartoon allowed to run in Florida newspapers as-is?

And God made them pay dearly for the nipples:

So does this mean they could show a topless woman, so long as they grotesquely photoshop out the nipples?

@8, not a bad question. Our nation hates "nudity" becuse nudity = sex = bad, in the minds of... oh, all the folks running loose that make Slog completely NSFW for me, here in the South...

But ... American loves tittilation! So, it's bad, bad, bad when we see Janet Jackson's bube, that is to say, nipple (and metallic barnacle.)

But all of the cleaveage and push-up bra she's ever shown before or since, that's okay, all of the cleavage and jiggling and shaking about and barely-covered that Britney Spears has done in public over the years, that's okay, and Jessica Alba is a nice Latina/Catholic girl and swears she'll never do a nude scene in a movie, but she sure shakes her taut little patootie about in tiny white panties.

(I am not complaining. In fact, I wish Charles would post a picture of that to make some important point.)

So yeah, bring on the pasties. Why not? What is the next transgression? Surely we can't be running out...
