Do You Live in Ballard and Crave a Backyard Full of Soggy Naked People?

posted by on June 17 at 11:08 AM

Speaking of naked cyclists: Perennial Slog tipper Jake alerted me to this gem from Craigslist:

We are looking for a location for our nude cyclist body painting. We need a location in the Ballard area where the bike riders won’t have to ride too far. There may be about 200 riders before they ride to the parade and will return to clean off their body paint. We are looking of a large back yard, front yard, etc. Reply ASAP. Location: Seattle Compensation: no pay

No compensation? Oh, hell no. Offer something, at least. Giving 200 people space to get naked, paint themselves, then come back later and make a mess cleaning off their body paint is no small favor.

Actually, there's more like 350 of us. One yard isn't enough - we fill three or four. But that's ok, 'cause we gots an indoor space.

Ivan, anyone who's giving you that kind of space for free is either an angel or a fool. I'm gonna second what Hernandez said: even if they're not "charging" you for water and clean up, do the right thing and make some kind of donation.

I don't know--there are probably a number of people who would pay good money for several hundred people to get naked in their backyard, especially if they plan ahead with a pay-per-view video feed...

Double ew. I watched the painting take place before last year's Solstice Parade and my eyes are STILL burning. It was not sexy (nor intended to be, of course).
