I can finally legally wear my purple bikini underwear in Cape May...

"N.J. Beach Town Repeals 30-Year Speedo Ban"

Fin Fang Foom is excited...


"CAPE MAY, N.J. - Come on in, Speedo wearers, the water's fine: Your skimpy little swimsuits are legal now. For more than 30 years, this quaint little Victorian-themed resort at the southern tip of New Jersey said no to "skintight, formfitting or bikini type" bathing attire on males over the age of 12."

"Not that everyone's cheering. It's often the older guys — the ones with beer guts, or wrinkly skin, or unsightly tufts of hair — who wear the tiny swimsuits."

"The swimsuit ban was enacted in the 1960s in response to complaints about gay men who wore the suits on the beach, according to former mayor Robert Elwell, who writes a Cape May history column for a local newspaper." ...and is also queer himself.

On a somewhat related topic, "School Mistakes Huge Burrito for a Weapon."

That happened to me once. That's why Fin Fang Foom must cover up with his mighty purple bikini underwear.
