Bin musician Charlie was the naked punter

More British nudity this time from Cambridge....

Bin musician Charlie was the naked punter

THE naked punter who startled picnickers on the banks of the Cam has exposed himself . . .

as Charlie Cavey, a student famous for busking inside a bin.

As reported in Tuesday's News, Charlie's cheeky antics were spotted on the Backs in Cambridge when he took a boat out for a spin with friends, wearing just a pair of sandals.

The 27-year-old, who is a student at Anglia Ruskin University, said he first took to the Cam in his birthday suit in 1998 - and still enjoyed every minute of it.

He said: "I like taking my clothes off and I like making people laugh, so the naked punting kills two birds with one stone.

"I love it when I punt past the students and they all say 'that's disgusting', but I can see they're laughing along as well.

"I cover myself up when I pass groups of kids - I have a younger brother so I know what's acceptable - but most people find it hilarious and it's purely about amusing people.

"Talking of which, I loved the Newsopinion piece asking whether the naked punter could be identified by the length of his pole - that was spot on."

Charlie hit the headlines in April when a cast-iron bin he had bought for £600 three years ago as a busking stage was stolen.

He has become a familiar sight around the Bridge Street area in the summer, playing his guitar and singing hits by Tom Jones and Elvis to entertain tourists.

A police spokesman said Mr Cavey's antics on the river had not led to any complaints - but the force would have a duty to investigate if anyone was offended by his nudity.

He said: "There could be concerns about a naked punter outraging public decency, but we would only investigate if a member of the public was outraged."

The students painted their bodies with protest slogans and said they wanted to make public their complaints about bad schooling in the region.

If anyone has any more photos of this protest please feel free to send to the group.

Naked Engagement

Naked bravery
The Press Association Monday June 19, 06:44 AM

A US man hoping to get his reluctant girlfriend to accept his marriage proposal, jumped from his apartment window and ran naked through the district in which he lives.

The man, of Ann Arbor, Michigan, was trying to show his girlfriend that taking risks was important. When a couple came walking by, the man hid in bushes. But the male passer-by heard the bushes rustling and pulled out a handgun.

The naked man took off with the armed man in pursuit. A shot was fired and the luckless lover stumbled and fell, but was not hit. The gunman was arrested on gun and assault charges. The naked man was not charged. It is not known if he has become engaged.

'Depraved' civil servants naked antics

The Brits have been getting naked at the office now. In what has been described as being like something out of Ricky Gervais' The Office, naked 'depravity' was tolerated. How absolutely fantastic is that! Offices are such intolerably dull places that anyone livening it up by taking their clothes off gets full marks from me. Here is the full article below.

'Depraved' civil servants play naked office pranks

Civil servants who were supposed to be administering the government's much-criticised farm subsidies system have been taking part in 'depraved' office pranks such as leaping naked from filing cabinets.
The beleaguered Rural Payment Agency has begun an investigation into the behaviour of its staff at its Newcastle office, which allegedly included leaving cups of vomit in cupboards, taking drugs, having sex in toilets and holding breakdancing competitions during office hours.

The agency, which delayed the payment of £1.5bn worth of European subsidies to thousands of farmers, said it has so far sacked one junior member of staff over the allegations.

It is also disciplining others over what staff have describe as a real life Ricky Gervais office, only worse.

Some of the pranks were caught on CCTV in the office where more than 900 people are employed.

They were exposed by a whistle-blower who wrote to the Newcastle Chronicle: "I'm appalled at the level of depravity that is being tolerated at my work place."

The letter also quotes from an internal memo: "Although the staff obviously feels it is a great laugh, by anyone's standards in the workplace setting, this represents misconduct and may not be allowed to go unchallenged."

A spokesman for Rural Payments Agency confirmed that "allegations of serious misconduct" have been made and have been under investigation for "some weeks."

A statement added: "RPA expects high standards of its staff, who have very important and responsible jobs to do for the farming industry, and will not tolerate breaches such as those described."

Michael Jack, chairman of the Commons rural affairs committee, condemned the pranks.

He said: "These reports are extremely disappointing as they come at a time when farmers would have expected that everyone at the agency would have got the message that completing the 2007 payments was a number one priority."

"These other activities are clearly a complete distraction from focusing on the real job, which is putting things right for British farmers."

Earlier this year the government was forced to seek an extension from Brussels to a deadline that was due to expire this month for handing back unpaid subsidies. The agency has gone through three chief executives this year over mounting concerns about late payments.

Naked protesters v. tuition hike nabbed
By Ben O. Tesiorna

DAVAO CITY -- Police arrested eight young protesters Thursday not for airing their sentiments against soaring school fees but for marching on Davao City streets butt naked.

The protesters from militant group Akbayan were arrested by San Pedro police Thursday morning after they marched naked from the University of Mindanao on Bolton Street up to Roxas Boulevard fronting the Ateneo de Davao University, holding only placards to cover their private parts.

Nude protests were held simultaneously in Manila and other major cities like General Santos and Zamboanga.

The nude protest started at 10:30 am.

In Manila, some 30 males aged 18 to 22 years old belonging to the Alyansa ng Nagkakaisang Lakas ng Kabataan (Alyansa) ran naked for a few minutes on the streets of Espana, Morayta, and Mendiola to protest government's meager allocations for education and the uncontrolled tuition increases.

They called on government to give attention to the plight of some 13 million youngsters who were forced to leave school because of the runaway tuition and the neglect of government for the sector.

Protesters in Davao, meanwhile, covered their faces with paint to make them unrecognizable. Police said they would file charges of public scandal against the protesters.

The protesters, police added, were carrying placards, some of which called for President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo's ouster and a wage increase, among others.

An official of Akbayan, however, denied there were placards calling for Arroyo's ouster.

Rosie Calumpong, Akbayan national council member, said the protesters were not flaunting their nakedness in the public as the placards hid their private parts, and added the charges are purely meant to harass them.

The naked protesters are facing charges for grave scandal. One of them is a 16-year-old boy from Ma-a, according to Calumpong.

She said all of the protesters voluntarily participated in the naked protest Thursday and were never coerced by the group.

Aside from grave scandal, police are also poised to file child abuse against the organizers, unconfirmed reports showed. Akbayan sought legal aid from the Public Attorney's Office.

As of this posting, the protesters were still detained while awaiting bail from their colleagues. (Sun.Star Davao/With ECV)

No Sex please, we're butlers

As many of you know I have a bit of a fetish about the idea of being waited on by naked guys and hey why not? Browsing the various news websites today I came upon this news item about Butlers in the Buff. I quote it here in full....

No Sex please, we're butlers
Reuters Monday June 5, 01:28 PM

By Paul Majendie

LONDON (Reuters) - Forget the quintessential image of the butler as the epitome of discreet decorum.

"Butlers in the Buff" has proved such a business success as half-naked waiters in Britain that the firm is now off round the world to market the ultimate "male order" service.

The company, whose waiters wear only a bow tie, collar, cuffs and a bottom-revealing apron, is the brainchild of former Royal Marine Jason Didcott who turned entrepreneur after serving in the Gulf and Bosnia.

Determined to find a tasteful alternative to strippers and pole dancers, he lays down strict rules -- each waiter undergoes a scrupulous police check and drink-fuelled clients are firmly told to keep their hands to themselves.

"What we are looking for is James Bond in a butler outfit. We want them to be cheeky but clean," he told Reuters.

"At the end of the party they can have their photo taken with the butler but that is as far as it goes. If they have too much wine and try to undo the apron, he says No Touching."

"We want nice, charming, gentlemanly types. At the interview we just check their upper body. We take their bums on trust."

The waiters readily admit to first night nerves -- but they soon conquer them.

Butler Dan Atkins said: "I love the job. I couldn't think of a better way to earn money. At first you're nervous but you soon forget your bum is on display and you get on with serving drinks and mingling."

Didcott, and his company partners Will Jones and Stacey Lynn, has 75 part-time butlers on his books to staff hen parties, corporate functions and the fast growing market of gay wedding receptions.

The butlers range from actors, dancers and students to personal trainers and even a hypnotherapist. "We are desperate to find more. We never have enough," he said.

Didcott is now ready to expand the horizons of Butlers in the Buff.

"We have a business model we want to franchise out. We have had so many people passing through London who have rung us and said they would like to do it. I'm thinking of North America, Australia and South Africa as first stops."

But Didcott, who when launching the firm did his first party for free as a half-naked butler, draws the line at any more parading of himself.

"At 37 I am over the hill in butler terms. My bottom retired three years ago."


An ex marine showing off cute guys...mmmm whatever next? You know if I was running that service it would soon dissolve into an all out frigging orgy. Those dudes wouldn't be wearing aprons for long :-)
