He needs to be remembered for something. If he keeps doing it in this cold weather, he's hardly going to make a "big" impression.

People are exposing themselves, touching children and raping women, and you people make jokes. Guess everyone deals with things differently.

Talk about braving the elements. The cold couldn't have been very flattering.

Yeah, busymom, they do. The way I see it is if we didn't laugh, we'd cry. There's so much atrocity in this world if you let every little thing that happens in this world affect you so deeply, you can get mired down in the misery of the negative and totally forget the positive. Now, as I see it, no one really commented inappropriately on the molestation and rape. You have to admit, a flasher wearing plastic pants can be funny. Esp one that's flashing in the winter, totally ignoring Costanza's laws of shrinkage. Lighten up!
