Needed: a Ban on Unsolicited Toe-Licking?

  1. Aug 6, 2004 #1
    I think people that live in Amsterdam can sleep a little easier when they pass this law. :smile:

    No matter how that happens, it is so, so it is still so...

    I don't want some weirdo licking my toes without my solicitation, so this law is a step in the right direction, though given that all forms of hedonism have traditionally bee legal in amsterdam i'm urprised that sucha landmark move would pass there.

    You'd think, wouldn't you. It seems like it ought to be easy to find some law already on the books that would somehow cover this. Passing a law against toe licking because of one single known offender seems like a waste of energy and time. They should lump it in with something that is already illegal.

    Toe-licking is a beautiful thing! You just don't understand!

    Oh, yeah. It would be great to be lying there on the beach and be startled bolt upright by the feel of some strangers mouth on your foot.

    What I can't understand is why no one ever chased the guy down and beat the living daylights out of him??
    but who knows, maybe that's the reaction he was hoping for!

    Come on, you first gotta swell up and soften those footsies if you expect to have a quality licking session. I thought you women liked foreplay! :approve: :biggrin:

    :rolleyes: Not when it is unsolicited...

    If I was too lazy to dust the sand off my toes before putting on my flip-flops, and a kindly gentleman licked them clean (the toes, not the flip-flops) for me, I wouldn't go after him swinging my handbag.

    Well...I don't really own a handbag.

    But I ain't got no flip-flops either, so it's okay !

    Come on ! This s the Netherlands; not Orange County, California.

    There used to be a television program (it also caught on in other countries, Dimitri: 'kassa kassa' right?), where people would have to do the most outrageous things for FL 1000 (20000 BFR?).. something like $400..

    Maybe they started filming again :tongue2:

    I saw this in the odd news today and was also baffled that they couldn't find some law that would already cover it. Surely some generic disorderly conduct type charge ought to apply.

    What amazed me more is that he hadn't been given a good kick in the teeth or nose! Sorry, but I have ticklish feet, and if someone surprised me by licking my foot, it would be more reflexive than anything else that I'd kick him.

    And then I keep wondering that in such a liberal place as the Netherlands, he couldn't find someone willing to satisfy his fetish without needing to go around beaches licking sandy, dirty feet! YUCK!

    I'm sure there's some form of that TV show in most countries. I know of similar shows in Australia and the US (besides Europe). :rolleyes:

    Still, no toe-lickers over here. At least no repeat offenders that make the news.

    Surely they'd have to call it quits after getting a forceful faceful of foot - what with the likes of Moonbear and MIH roaming these beaches. :devil:
