Character studies

Joe's recent post about the Central Park Disco brought back fond memories from a couple summers back...

That dude, who was all of 40, spent the whole afternoon hitting on her.

If she's 71 now, Disco Grandma was 69 years old then. I've heard people comment that they hope they look that good at her age. Shit, I say. I wish I looked that good now.

I love New York's extensive and bizarre cast of characters. I think she's my favorite, in a close race with the Naked Cowboy. Ultimately, though, Disco Grandma wins. The Cowboy attended a party I bartended a few years back, and though he was very sweet and has washboard abs, he's a pretty crappy tipper.

That's quite lame of Naked, as he makes about $1000 a day collecting dollar bills for photos with him.

We love Disco Grandma! And I can see Blady Flowness and his bike in your shot!

And I kinda feel cheated NC®™©™ is never totally naked.

I mean, can he really even call himself that?!

Disco Grandma rocks. As for NC, that's typical. I bet he's a dead lay too. I was having this discussion with my pal Monkey. When they look that good, they pretty much feel like they've done their part and just lie there.

Yeah, Colleen...my thoughts exactly. You'd think someone who makes his living on tips would be super cool that way, but no. He flirted shamelessly, and called me "darlin'" about 35 times...I think that special honor was intended to be my tip. No dice, baby. (Did I mention that it was an open bar? Yeah.)

Joe, I have some love for Blady too, although sometimes he's like looking at the sun.

Lioux, you've got a point. Those tighty whities of his do nothing for me.

Evil, I bet you're right. Dudes who never had to work too hard to get laid are almost always crap in bed. (I think I've slept with most of those guys, so I'm qualified to say that.)

That look just about says everything. Let me know when you're ambulatory again so we can do happy hour. I'm parched.

Are you the HOT babe in the foreground? That girl is TOTALLY giving off sagittarius vibes, and that come hither look. You are just aching to don some skates and shake your groove thang, aren't you? I would so be your skate partner! We would have to convince the deejay to play some old time rock-n-roll though. Given the "damnation theme" I'm thinkin "Hell's Bells?"

We've got nothing that interesting here in eastern Montana. Our only excitement is our Mountain Man. He's about 60 years old and in the summer he wears nothing but handmade rawhide chaps.

As an aside, I don't think he's related to Naked. :-|

Isn't the current Naked Cowboy a buffer version of the original? I thought I heard that somewhere ...
