clothe a stranger

cover up those unsightly expanses of flesh

when in a public place, and you see a man/woman exposing innapropriate flesh, you could then whip out one of your cover-up patches (?velcro-backed/glue-backed?) and stick it on them.

       Define "innapropriate" (or inappropriate).   

       Pardon me, is this bus headed for Rantsville?

       no- it's not an idea for clothes. It's an idea that would show whether there was a popular consensus on how clothed one should be when stepping out in public.   

       Half: The idea would, by putting it into practice, provide interesting feedback as to what "appropriate" is.   

       And there's nothing to stop my vote being reversed by you coming up and unsticking a patch from where I've put it.

       //stick it on them// the possibility of getting a smack in the chops is highly likely.

       Can we have the reverse then? Unclothe a stranger.
nichpo, Sep 29 2003
  

       just as likely to get you a smack in the chops :)

       Peeling velcro or glue-backed clothing off people is likely to cause offence, partly due to the pain. Are there any areas that are deemed no-go areas? Otherwise [po] is extremely likely to smack you in the chops, with or without velcro clothing.

       [blissmiss] the two 'chops' make up the opposing sides of ones 'mush' which is located on the front lower portion of ones 'bonce'.

       Anatomically correct chops <link>

       Rather degrading, wouldn't you say? I'd have probably given it more kudos if it wasn't having to do with covering up the ugly parts of other humans but was rather something more on the constructive end.   

       Often times what is considered ugly or unsightly goes along ethnic or cutural lines. Are you the judge of unsightly?   

       What about those with skin conditions? What does a glue or velcro patch do for someone with eczema?   

       // It's an idea that would show whether there was a popular consensus on how clothed one should be when stepping out in public.//   

       I'm really sorry that the human in question had a higher self esteem than you deemed possible.   

       //And there's nothing to stop my vote being reversed by you coming up and unsticking a patch from where I've put it.//   

       Or having the person just take it off themselves.   

       How is this idea different from a human female I know who recieved a cow bell as a secret santa gift. Here let me stick a fishbone to this idea. You can reverse it if you like. -

       I will fishbone any idea involving represing others just because you think that your perspective of how the world should be is correct and absolute.

       If your gonna do it, make it a spray-on substance, like that textured spraypaint. You could make a tank-top into a sweater in about 20 seconds. Bare midriffs? A thing of the past! If you really want my vote, you'll make a spraypaint that dissolves clothes! I could use that next time I'm at the club!-Nate
