New York's Naked Cowboy - who entertains the Times Square masses by strumming a guitar dressed in his undies - has taken exception to a Naked Cowgirl who he reckons is "ripping off his shtick". That's how the New York Post summarises Sandy Kane's infringement of Robert Burck's Naked Cowboy trademark. Burck is demanding the …
Not for the fainthearted?
Thats an understatement. You reg hacks are normally better at warning us about off-reg links that that.
Can I propose a "Not Safe For Eyes" tag, in a similar vein to your NSFW please?
I can't unsee that picture, you know.
the comments are worth a quick look though, such as..
"Sandy Kane, a fixture of the city comedy scene and former stripper famous for closing her act by lighting her breasts on fire.
looks like her face might have gotten lit a few times..."
Dear god! My eyes have been soiled.... I can only hope the people paid $2 a photo are doing it out of pity
Oh dear! I think that's what we get for saying "pics or it didn't happen"!
Now if you'll excuse me, I have to go wash my eyes.
GOOD GOD !!!
PLEASE REMOVE THAT LINK !!!
SAVE THE MASSES BEFORE THEY CLICK OUT OF CURIOSITY !!!
Loved the section at the bottom.
is it just me?
"Edit error 37: Your search request for "naked" + "cowboy" returned no results. Please consult internal memo 9 of 21/7/2006 for guidelines on selecting IT-related material."
at the botton of the story?
and is it just me complaining of the lack of pics?
OMG! Thank you for trying to spare us...
I foolishly followed that link to the Post and was nearly blinded by the image it revealed.
the Reg feeling rather amorous today
She's no eeeeepc girlie
Neither of them should be allowed to use the trademarks if they're doing whatever they're doing in their underwear
The definition of naked ...
... in the US is certainly different to the one I know!
I'd pay her to keep away from me......
Why anyone would want a picture of her (shudder.......)
Wow Lester, you hinted at it in the final sentence but the link to the article with the embedded photograph should come with a warning written in letters 40-foot high. It's enough to make me feel quite ill (*shudder*).
For those who haven't been dumb enough to follow the link, don't. Just don't. Please, don't.
(@Sarah Bee: Before you smite me, understand I'd add this public health warning regardless of the photographed subject's gender. If you still want to smite me, look at the picture and consider that I am permanently scarred by the thought of the defendant lighting her breasts at a strip show)
Re: Warning needed
Mmm. No. It's just the human body, for chrissakes, I don't see why it induces nausea. I bet none of you who claim to be running for the bucket hand clasped to mouth are golden gods.
But I'm not the one running around NYC in a bikini ?!
If we are golden gods, would this mean you would not smite, you'd be smitten?
As an aside, isn't it curious that most who undress at nudist beaches are those who most need to cover up? Or have the most to cover up?
Re: Warning needed
"Gender" refers to language use differences, "sex" refers to human differences.
Methinks my brief observation twixt tightly compressed fingers reveals that neither is relevant!
Got to agree...
Its not as if there aren't thousands of less aesthetic bodies on display on every beach in the world - mine for instance - and why the hell not.
Re: Re: Warning needed
"I bet none of you who claim to be running for the bucket hand clasped to mouth are golden gods."
And that's where you're wrong. I am the 24-carat winged deity Archithonrix, and I lay Fabergé eggs.
Ae you _sure_ that is human?
Sex vs. gender
You are quite correct, sir. I just couldn't bring myself to use the word 'sex' in a post about this article. (*Shudder*)
Does C3PO even read the register?
Yeah yeah. I bet your tits are 30% saggier than hers.
sex vs gender
So do my computer's cables have gender or sex?
(actually, if it's sex, that would explain the tangled mess behind the desk)
Re: Sex Vs Gender
Well, around here the plugs that change a cable's connectors (from male to female or vice versa) are known as "gender-benders". YMMV
re: sex vs gender
> So do my computer's cables have gender or sex?
Um, well yes if course they do, otherwise your computer wouldn't be able to have interface, now would it?
I'd happily fork out two bucks for here to put some clothes on!
They do nothing!
After all neither of them or naked, and come to think of it, I suspect that neither of them are cowboys or cowgirls.
Re: False advertsiing?
to these naked pretenders ... GYTO/GYCO of GTFO :S apologies to the moderatrix for channeling /b/
If they were really naked, there would be no way of identifying them as cow people.
Thanks for the link. Now I feel unwell.
If this was the UK she'd be sued under the Trade Description Act.
Isn't that a man?
That "cowgirl" looks suspiciously male. No wonder Naked Cowboy is angry.
another path for my career diversification blocked
My eyes, my eyes...
Should have taken my glasses off before following the link.
Perhaps people are giving her money in the hope that she'll buy some clothes.
Mind you, it's given me an idea. Perhaps I should wander round the Bull Ring in my undies and see if anyone will pay good money to be photographed with the Naked Bald Fat Git.
He has a trademark on the Stetson?
There are whole large stretches of the US where Stetsons, cowboy hats, are as common as umbrellas in London. I will admit that most of these are at least 20 degrees of longitude west of NYC. They do tend to be areas where those of northern European descent need to ration their exposure to sunlight--there is a very good reason that Stetsons have big brims--so the naked part I guess he can claim.
@ Martyn 1
oh hell yeah. just like the big british beer gut that makes it's summer appearence to the detriment of everyone in the visable vicinity, there are things that should remain clothed.
And in The Times...
...it's further claimed that the artiste in question is renowned for having a genital wart shaped like an ear.
Perhaps thankfully, no pictures were accompanying the article to back up this rather bizarre claim.

Clicked on the link
never saw a thing.
Was wearing my peril sensitive sunglasses (indoors of course) though.
Beer because I going to need gallons to get my eyesight back
I had to watch the 2 girls 1 cup video just to get that image out of my head.
It's Petunia from Futurama.
Blurg, where do I get some brain soap?
Seeing as the warning wasn't really harsh enough from El Reg I'm booked into a Laser Eye Clinic to have my retinas burned out so that this doesn't happen again.
Expect an invoice from councilling service very soon.
Where's the link to Naked Cowboy photos
I was going to suggest that they get together and have naked cowchildren, but she is certainly stretching the term "girl" a lot more than it should ever be stretched.
The "50-something New Jersey native whose real name is Sandra Brodsky"
C'mon, Lester did say she was 50-something!
But I did take a peek, and it wasn't pretty.
