Add this to the list of Things I Didn't Need to See
(but had to blog anyway)

(fair warning: it's about to get worse)
(grateful for having laid my towel sidewards of him)


Can we girls offer some advice like, "No. Don't ever. Please."

Reminds me of the time our family visited Quebec. We took a cruise tour around the harbor at Quebec City. Our teenage daughter & her friend were checking out guys on nearby boats--when they spotted this middle-aged man in a thong speedo. Both girls said--EWWWWWW--simultaneously and equally loud.

Oh, my!

Lynne at Hasty Brook said...

OMG!! You made root beer shoot out of my nose!!
I'll bet that thong thing didn't cover much for anyone to the right of you...

(pressing my eyes trying to get THAT image out)

Beth in NYC said...

Oh no, that's just wrong!

dguzman said...

I need to go vomit now.

bobbie said...

Is it a French Canadian thing? I remember a couple of French Canadians coming into our office at the Township one day, wearing almost this little. They were grinning from ear to ear too, enjoying our reactions.

Patrick Belardo said...

I wouldn't be surprised if this individual was French Canadian. The Jersey shore is a popular tourist spot for them, especially Wildwood.

Caroline said...

As my daughter always says, "just because they make it in spandex, in your size, doesn't mean you should wear it in public"!

Floridacracker said...

Shudder ... he should be wearing a two piece by the looks of it.

... bet he wears socks with sandals too.

Susan Gets Native said...

Oh, f***. Must. Wash. Brain.

What the hell was that red splotch on his left butt cheek? Did he just get SPANKED??

robin andrea said...

Good for you for having the stomach to actually focus and photograph it.

Thanks for the warning yesterday about this post. Forgot until just right now. Darn. Now I have to poke my eyes out. Whats with those Canadians coming down here with their crazy bathing suits and crazy ideas about national health care ? Whats up with that ? What the heck is he holding between his knees anyway ? Is that a sandwich ? Yuk! WTF? What beach was this ? I will make sure I strike it from my "kids at the beach day". Too much explaining to do. Sand does not belong in certain places. Nor sunburn. Taint right ;)

*looking in vain for Men In Black memory-eraser*


MevetS said...

Hmmm ... maybe they should have stolen that camera too ...

LauraHinNJ said...

MevetS: I was gonna use exactly that line as my post title.


Beth: Yeah, what was he thinking?

Kev: LOL! I'm not sure what that is... didn't care to look that close.

Robin: This was at a mostly gay beach... so there's lots of... um... tiny bathing suits among the men, but this guy really stood out.

Funny but, the lady he was with had a thong on too and that wasn't nearly as bothersome to me.

Susan: (laugh) I think he might've been sitting in the hot sand for too long.

FC: Just cover your butt please!

Caroline: Yeah. Tho he seemed perfectly confident with himself.

Patrick: Yep... I remember from summers as a kid spent in Wildwood.

Bobbie: (laugh) Yeah... this reminded me of my prudish American sensibilities.


I'd almost prefer nakedness...

Beth and Delia: (laugh)

Lynne: Exactly!

Forest: Oh my is right.

KGMom: (laugh)

Yeah... there's something very not flattering about that style to a man's figure.

(but to each his own, right?)

Laura, I can't believe this guy. My, the things you see when you don't have a gun! It needs to be put out of its misery! (and ours!)
