It was like a scene from a disaster movie. The highways were jammed with furious gridlock, horns were honking, people were taking crazy chances, jerks were being extra jerky, emergency vehicles everywhere….

Yes, Oregon has a nude beach. Several, in fact. No, it’s never anybody you’d actually want to see naked. Yes, there is an actual weird-ass contraption washed up on shore. No, it’s not really an unidentified “floating” object.

Whistle While You Walk

by duncanr

Robert Smith aka’the Whistler'(aka ‘that fecken annoying twat) is a weel-kent – if not weel-liked – figure in Portland, Maine

Smith believes his constitutional right to free-speech includes the right to whistle where and when he wants. This view is not shared by local businesses and residents who believe his loud, tuneless, whistling outside their premises is a public nuisance (as well as driving their customers away)

Now a compromise has been reached between Smith and City Prosecutors – he can continue to whistle in public but only if he keeps moving – in that way it is hoped we won’t be in the one spot long enough to annoy anyone

P.S. 10 points to anyone who can name the tune he is whistling 😆
