More Evidence that Americans are Strange
« on: July 16, 2011, 10:48:31 PM »
Marilyn Monroe statue reveals famous flare

Marilyn Monroe's billowing skirt shows it's possible to catch a nice breeze in the Windy City.
 
As dozens of people watched Friday, a 26-foot-tall sculpture of Monroe in her famous pose from the "The Seven Year Itch" was unveiled on Chicago's Magnificent Mile. In the movie, a draft catches Monroe's dress as she passes over a subway grate.
 
Many in the crowd that descended on the plaza throughout the day - including a tuxedo-clad wedding party - wasted little time positioning themselves under the movie star's dress to catch a subway-level view and take pictures with their cell phone cameras. Not that Monroe, her eyes closed and a sublime smile on her face, seemed to notice...

Dude, if I could only post a photo of the packaging of "snack" sold widely in Japan here without likely being banned, it would boggle most minds, perhaps not yours, being exposed to the S&M tilt-o-whirl that can be Japanese "culture".

It is very unlikely to shock me.

I'd appreciate a PM, though, haha!

Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me this depraved sinner!

It would be her personality and whether she's Christian that would be most important of course. ;)  But seriously. Those are some lovely gams, etc, etc, etc ∞!

One way to find out, etc. If she wasn't a married alien could I be forgiven? Look out!

Actually, it seems that the Americans might have been the first to have had seafood flavored ice cream. I think at the first white house function where ice cream was served (some time in the 19th century), one of the flavors offered was oyster.

Come on now, those were the 1800's.  Lots of crazy things went down in the 1800's.
