Thank Goodness for the Underwear Police…

Last Thursday at a Georgia night club, partygoers decided to dance in their underwear. Thank goodness the Atlanta Police Department (APD) stepped in and saved the crowd of adult patrons from themselves by arresting them.  If not for APD, consenting adults might have seen each other in their underwear. Doesn’t JC Pennny spend millions each year with footage of beautiful models wearing sexy lingerie in their prime time TV ads?  Thank heaven that APD was alert to the danger and even called in the “Red Dog Unit” which is generally reserved for gang violence.  Perhaps the police were concerned that the dancers might be packing Uzi’s underneath the elastic of their undies. Ultimately, 62 patrons and 8 employees were cuffed and forced to lay face down on the ground. What were these rebels being charged with, you ask? Indecency. Indecency, really? Haven’t the APD guys ever ever been to the beach or looked at a Sears Catalog? I wonder if the Atlanta DA will go for the death penalty against the CEO of Victoria Secret. Are our tax dollars really being spent on this nonsense?   In Atlanta, apparently we are when it comes to gay bars. As the men were roughly being forced to the ground, they were also on the receiving end of anti-gay slurs and excessive force. Can you imagine people at a straight club in an upscale part of your city being treated this way? Of course not. This is discrimination against a sexual minority and it should bother every American. In this great country it has to be okay to be white or black or mexican or asian or gay or straight, or god forbid, even left-handed.  In case you were wondering, “The mission of the Atlanta Police Department is to reduce crime and promote the quality of life, in partnership with our community…(and with values of) Dedication, Professionalism, Integrity.” Whoops!

There is the Smithsonian, The Louvre and The Grand Met. But why waste your time with the Mona Lisa when you can see an entire exhibit on underwear.   Famed artist, Jan Bucquoy created the Underwear Museum in Brussels, Belgium.  Bucquoy told Reuters that he is “creating poetry (and that) underwear is art.”  To be considered for the exhibit, the underwear must have been worn by a celebrity or politician for at least one day.  Bucquoy also noted that “If I had portrayed Hitler in his underpants there would not have been a war.”  Really, Jan?  I think we may have a new poster boy for One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest!
