You got my sympathy, Alan, cos you are completely missin' the point. The point in the lyric was that even a very important person in a high position like a president or a king can still be humbled by events in life...just like the rest of us can. He ain't exempt. Yer literal thinkin' has led you far astray on this one. Yer logical analysis about a person bein' naked or not naked, and when and when, has nothin' to do with it. It's poetry! Poetry deals in metaphor, symbol, allegory, stuff like that.

As fer puttin' his monkey on a log and orderin' him to do the dog...I figger that for one of two possibilities:

1. Bob Dylan abuses his pets (or familiars) by makin' 'em do cross-species sexual acts. (that would be the literal-minded interpretation)

Or.....

2. He was crackin' a joke.

I'm bettin' it's #2.

Now, tell me...whadda you make of the lyric "but he just smoked my eyelids and punched my cigarette"? You gonna go literal on that one too? ;-D

If a tree falls in a forest and no one sees it....would you still try and swing from its branches, Chongo as if it hadn't happened.

And if the President of the USA never stood up not even to wipe his bum - say someone incapcitated like FDR - would he have stood naked even in private?

Okay, from that point - let us progress logically - it is possible (not strictly probable) that the Predident could manage without standing naked.

You were misled on that that point by the great man. He's also the chap who claims to have put his monkey on a log and ordered him to do the dog.

Would any thinking person give such an order? I think he lied on that point too.

The man's a scoundrel.

"How big are you, are you a guy or a gal, have you eaten anything tonight, over what period did you sup your two pints..."

Plus what kind of beer is it etc. I've seen a graph for instance that shows a weak beer of about 3% would contain 4 units in 2 pints whilst a beer of 5% strength would contain 5.6 units in 2 pints. Not many are as low as 3% but of course there are beers of more than 5%. Going to get more ocmplicated for UK drivers as the Scottish govt is aiming to reduce the limit here!

Well, Fp, we know that everything is bigger Stateside, and the way your media go hysterical over a minor wardrobe malfunction suggests you are right.

I still think we have a problem here, but I'll grant that yours is more extreme.

As for education producing a more rational approach to such matters, well it sounds logical, and it fits with my limited experience. It would be interesting to see some proper data.

"Can't help feeling that we in the UK are far too hung up on all aspects of nudity"

Oh, yah? I betcha our American hangups over nudity are bigger than your hangups over nudity any day! : )

I can't cite anything substantive on this right now, but I've seen alleged results of studies over the years to the effect that educational and professional levels are generally higher among members of nudist organizations than the general populace. Personal experience for me would say that's true to a limited degree. I would just think it would follow with the general tendency of non-rational taboos, biasis, and traditions to fall away with education.

I've heard that such nudism (in private) is fairly common among the very wealthy in this world. After all, they feel that being very wealthy should allow them a certain additional degree of license, as it were, a measure of freedom not necessarily common to the rest of mundane humanity. This was certainly true in ancient Rome. Why shouldn't it be so in the present era?

I had a friend approach me and ask if I were interested in attending private nude get-togethers with himself and some of his close friends. He made it clear that it wasn't a sex gathering...no orgies or anything like that...just shared nudity in the outdoors, that's all. He said he found it very liberating.

I thought..."Yuck!"...and declined the offer. I don't particularly want to see most of my middle-aged to elderly friends and acquaintances in the nude...and besides, I get cold too easily. The weather conditions would have to be almost perfect. ;-)

the British limit is two pints or less of beer, or two doubles of scotch. Twice is four doubles or four pints. Approx.

Well, Al, I like your precision (despite your lily-livered "approx" ;-) ), but it's basically bollix innit. How big are you, are you a guy or a gal, have you eaten anything tonight, over what period did you sup your two pints...

In my long, alcohol-fuelled life, I've come across four cases of my mates having been breathalysed in which I know what they'd supped. Here ya go:

1. My mate supped seven pints and got done. He was 83 on the scale when the limit is 80. A smidgeon over after seven!

2. Mate numero deux supped a pint and a half. He was under the limit by a titchy fraction. Phew!

Number Three had had three and a half pints. He passed the breath test with flying colours. "Have a safe journey home, sir."

Numero quatro had had two pints and the cop told him there was no trace of booze on his breath.

So let's not go down this path, eh, Al!

While some may feel "secure" with a person driving them home who have consumed that amount of alcohol, IMO, most would (and should) not.

Keep in mind, thie situation in this case was not a "garden variety" drive home by a friend from a pub. The situation of "drive in question" is not remotely like what you suggest.

FYI, outside of denial, there is massive amounts of scientific data on the impacts of drinking and driving-some of those related to this situation are listed below:
""If you drink alcohol and drive, you are likely to find it difficult to:
• judge the speed of your vehicle;
• judge the distance between your car and other cars;
• notice traffic lights, vehicles and other hazards;
• concentrate on the task of driving;
• react appropriately to things going on around you, particularly if an unexpected hazard should suddenly appear.
Alcohol also gives you a false sense of confidence. You may take more
risks than you normally would – but remember, alcohol slows down your
reaction time to hazards: you may not even react at all.""

I'm no William Hague with a fifteen pint capacity, but I reckon I've been driven home dozens of times by people who've drunk the equivalent of four doubles and never felt in any danger.

Can't see that anyone, especially a "professional bodyguard" would not notice they were "woozy" from that amount booze regardless of the delivery method. If he were an unexperienced teen ager, I could see him saying, "WTF, I will drive drunk, and at racing speeds".

But, it's hard to fathom that a professional, with such a valuable passemnger under his care, would have such "unprofessional" judgement.

And, there was another body guard to assist in the driving, and other options rather than starting off on such a foolish "dash" even if there was such urgency to make that deadly trip.

Oh my, Steve ~~ I don't think I have ever come across such an accomplished point-misser.

To spell it out ~~ of course it wasn't the papps who got the driver drunk. BUT NOR WAS IT HIS OWN VOLITION. He was an experienced and well-paid professional with a professional reputation to maintain. He would never have got drunk on the job. Someone spiked something, or otherwise got at him; then tipped off the papps to make sure he would be well pursued. Result, as intended: one deceased ex-royal who had become an embarrassment.

I am in general not one for conspiracy theories. Myra Hindley is dead. Armstrong walked on the Moon, not in the Utah desert.

But I make an exception for exHRH Di of Wales. She was done away with, I most strongly suspect. {&, as I remarked before, I make a similar exception for Norma-Jean.}

Well you tell us. The facts as we know them are banal rather than romanticated. The chauffeur was totally pissed. He got into the driving seat. Diana and Dodi (possibly not stone-cold sober either, but who am I to speculate...) got in the car with him. Whether their judgement was impaired while so doing, or whether they were just bloody thick and stupid, is another matter, but they got in. Off he went, helter-skelter along a road which did not justify his speed and his compromised driving skills. He crashed and they all snuffed it. Simple. If the papps were chasing them, tough shit. I can't remember the last time I read about a papp killing or injuring someone in the act of taking their photos. Getting away from the papps was simply not that important, and, in making that misjudgement, they paid the price. No papp either killed them or wanted them dead.

All celebrities live with this same situation,- it goes with the glamour popularity and $. Odd that few have expressed much concern for those folks before here-Maybe because they are not also tagged as being "royal", from a feudal (and fairytale) past.

Yes paparazzi have a disrespected job to many (as with other jobs). But, someone buys the publications that pay them, and pays them well.

And if Harry's drinking and partying habits are as you describe (I haven't heard those stories meself: you probably read them in one of those papers the paparazzi work for...) it isn't because people keep snapping him.

As far as Kate goes, just put William in a room with the Scumbag who took those photos, and close the door, then walk away....Justice will soon be done and Wills will emerge with a smile on his face....

These young men have not only had their entire lives altered because of these Criminally Minded people who care not an ounce for anyone, but they continue to have their lives plagued by them and by people around them who will sell any photo of them to the highest bidder...

YOU imagine living in a world where you can trust absolutely no-one at all. Imagine going to sleep worrying that some of your 'buddies' might take a photos of you and put it on the internet or sell it...Imagine having no-one you can turn to, other than your brother, father or wife, who you can truly trust...

And you wonder why Harry drinks and parties his life away???????

Leave him alone and leave Kate alone too. Go after the Parasitic Scumbags who make their living out of hounding them half to death, or entirely to death, as in Diana's case....

""The term breast in birds (for example little fenale hawks) has been applied to the pectoralis muscles which they use for flight. They don't have mammary glands which produce milk to feed young like mammals do. However, the fact that birds lay eggs doesn't mean they could not have evolved with mammary glands. Echidnas and Platypii are egg laying mammals with mammary glands but not nipples. They have ducts through which the milk is delivered.

Platypus and echidna babies are considered to be the cutest... and some say the ugliest! You can make up your mind here, after seeing this wonderful series of images (by an exclusive permission of Australian photographer Den Whitton).""

:) Kinda late for those shots (to close the barn door), that had broad exposure (excuse the pun) outside this country and publication -

Possibly, the legal folks are shooting for next time, if common sense does not prevail. I doubt this is the end of this story and legal dilema.

Meanwhile back in the court room the French judges have ruled that this incident was an invasion of privacy, the distribution of the magazine is to be halted, and the photos destroyed. There are still efforts to fine the photographer as well as the publisher.

Tough titty for them!

From Wikki (not specific to France):

""Photographing private property from within the public domain is legal, with the exception of an area that is generally regarded as private, such as a bedroom, bathroom, or hotel room, where there is a general expectation of privacy...Should the subjects not attempt to conceal their private affairs, their actions immediately become public to a photographer using an average lens or video camera....

....The United States enacted the Video Voyeurism Prevention Act of 2004 to punish those who intentionally capture an individual's private areas without consent, when the person knew the subject had an expectation of privacy.Additionally, state laws have been passed addressing the issue as well.""

Jealousy is a very negative, ugly emotion.

"You know what dale Carnegie said - nobody ever bothered kicking a dead dog."

I'll assume that old Dale wasn't talking about American politics or the definition of authentic English folk music at the time.
