"Fall"ing sights in Vermont - must see!

The Brattleboro Reformer (the local paper) is, oddly enough, not carrying this story, but the Boston Globe, bless their little black hearts, is (of course).

Kristen Podsiedlik (left) and Hannah Phillips said they feel strongly about having the freedom to go unclothed, while Andrew Wdowiak, who works at Everyone’s Books, said he’s grown tired of the display of public nudity by local teenagers this summer. (Photos by Dominic Chavez/ Globe Staff)

Yeah, I'll bet that Andrew kid is just sick of it, sick, sick, sick. :) And I'll bet you clicked just because you saw a photo credit, right? And you were expecting to see photos of naked teenagers, weren't you? Well, oddly enough, there aren't any on the internet. Ooops, yes there are! I forgot. Well, there aren't any being sponsored by the Boston Globe. Ooops, again. Silly me.

Oh, did I say Oddly Enough? Here's what Oddly Enough News (a Reuters subsidiary) has to say about this (they don't have any pictures, either, sorry):

Some have appeared naked in a downtown parking lot. Others rode their bicycles or simply strolled the streets in the nude.

Teenagers in the quaint Vermont town of Brattleboro are raising eyebrows this summer with brazen displays of nudity.

So far they haven't been arrested or ticketed: public nudity isn't illegal in the town of 13,000 people, unless it's done to arouse sexual gratification.

So now don't anyone go getting any kind of sexual gratitification by looking at naked teens wandering the streets in Brattleboro, Vermont, do you understand me? :) Good. I thought we were all grown ups here.

Oh, and not to be left out of the fun this weekend, AP News noted:
A music festival promoting nudity and rebelliousness set up in May in a downtown parking lot and attracted nude hula hoopers.

Hula hoops? Nude? Hmmmmm.

Well, do be sure to notice the fall foliage while you're wandering around Vermont looking for naked teenagers shaking their, erm, hula hoops. I hear Vermont's just lovely this time of year. Live free or die!

Ooops, wait, that's New Hamp-shah's motto but I'm from Bah-ston so how'm I supposed to know what the heck they say all the way up in Vermont? What's Vermont's license plates say again? Stay Home. No, just kidding, but do be sure to read New England Photographer, Philip Greenspun's tips for touring New England fall foliage hunting before you hit the road.

He gives no advice on spotting nude teens, but does have some rather snarky interpretations of New England's "notable sights to see" and he does note where the State Liquor Stores are located (this is very important because New Hamp-shah has some duty-free state lines! You would not want to miss out on stocking up duty-free...just don't let the State Police next door see you. Hint: they like Jack. No, no, I'm not suggesting you bribe them. Everyone knows NH State Police are not corruptible!)
