Bring back the nudity, bring back the fun.
.........."Yeah Like A BackShot of Three Butt Naked Fags in FairyLand !"
So says San Francisco Supervisor Ross Mirkarimi, who is calling on Bay to Breakers organizers to ease up on new rules banning party floats and the Full Monty from the annual race."There is no reason to go this far," said Mirkarimi, whose supervisorial district is invaded every May by the 65,000 or so runners on their way from the Embarcadero to Ocean Beach. "Nudity and floats are part of the spirit of the race."
Outcries from race neighbors over sloppy-drunk participants displaying their all, relieving themselves wherever the mood strikes and leaving their trash everywhere prompted race organizers and city officials to ban booze and bare butts.Reaction among grassroots fans of the fun fest has been loud and swift, and Mirkarimi has taken up the cause. His first step will be to ask other supervisors to sign on to a resolution asking race organizers to lighten up.
"Nudity and floats are part of the overall eccentric nature of the race and what makes it so great," Mirkarimi said.As for the booze ban, however, Mirkarimi said it's probably here to stay."We're just trying to find some middle ground here," Mirkarimi said.
