Is Showing Nipples Through Clothing a Faux Pas?

Yesterday was National No-Bra Day. And numerous ladies freed their ladies in celebration of this auspicious day. But a little tell-tale issue comes up. This column from Dear Prudence points out the issue.

It's pokies. Yes, often when you go braless you may have your nipple outlines show through your blouse. As a matter of fact, in the fall it's a foregone conclusion that they will be obvious. 

So, what to do? Wear a bra and be uncomfortable, or not give a damn. After all, women have breasts, so people should get over it. What do you think? Is it rude to show, or just relaxed?

Oh, Canada!

How about a suitable coat-of-arms for the Great North? It's easy to like this, eh? God Save the Queen and Justin Treudeau.

The Coiffure Test for Trump Partisanship

The old saws that "you can't tell a book by its cover" or "you can't tell a dude by his duds" have only a certain degree of truth to them. Both are warnings against hasty decision making.

On the other hand, with the availability of t-shirts with slogans on them, you might make headway some of the time. Still, there's the simile of a trout struggling upstream that comes to mind.  

But is there any easy-peasy way of judging Trump supporters? 

If you care, it's in their hair. In a limited way.

Specifically, if he's sporting a mullet, he's likely to be a Trump supporter. Or, she's got big hair, she's likely to be a Trumpette.

Of course, there are the Trump supporters who pass for normal by getting mainstream 'dos. But mullets are so Trumpian; maybe Rudy Giuliani should get one.

Tennessee Man Enjoys the Sanctity of Marriage

A LaFollette man is looking forward to enjoying the sanctity of marriage for the fourth time in 11 years. Joseph D., 47, exchanged vows in a small ceremony at Cove Lake State Park on Saturday. He is wedded to Dana, who became his new fiancé just three weeks ago. D.'s third soul mate left him a month ago following a combination of irreconcilable differences and a report from a private investigator. "What can I say, I fell in love," said Joseph. "And then I fell in love again. And then I fell in love again. And then I did it again. I must not have a very low center of gravity." D. maintains that while he has had trouble staying faithful to his previous wives, he is a proponent of family values. "I value family," he said. "I'm hoping to have at least a couple more of them before I turn 50."

Banning the Bikini in Utah

While it took a long time to be accepted, the bikini swimsuit has been pretty well mainstream nowadays. Unlike the burkini, which has been banned on some French beaches.

To be sure, the present manifestations of this popular swimsuit have trended to the briefer, unlike the 1950's and 1960's versions. 

About a decade ago, Kanab, a small town in Utah, banned the bikini. This prohibition lasted about a month, before the community leadership repealed the ban. Otherwise, such an outright banning is associated with associated with such dismal places as Qatar. [Do they orient visitors on how to pronounce it?]

Anyway, they repealed the ban because of complaints and the fact that they came out looking like horses' asses. So they dialed down and banned thongs instead. 

If I was a thong-wearer, they would take it away from me by prying it from my cold head hands. Or is that a cheeky thing to say?
