This man proudly exercises his right to hang out in a skimpy thong8/19/2012
For five years, Joe Shead has been keeping Austin weird by strolling around his neighborhood in just shoes, socks, and a string thong. It’s legal and hey, no tan lines, but some of the Texas man’s neighbors have to ask themselves (and sometimes him), “Why?” He’s been detained more than 30 times after alarmed bystanders call police on him, but as he’s technically clothed has never been arrested. Shead maintains he’s protecting a right that unfortunately few people can bear to express. “I think our freedoms are something that you have to, you have to exercise them or you’re going to lose them.” Someone get this unsung hero an Old Glory-themed thong.

Should more people walk around in thongs?
