Sodom, Gommorah, and... Johnson City?

From the "Get A Room, Y'all!" Department comes the news that apparently Johnson City, TN had a... how to phrase this delicately? ...vibrant subculture, some elements of which kept engaging in vibrancy after dark in public parks with strangers, which is not only against the law, but tacky as all get out. Police claim that the 40 arrestees came from three states. Idaho was not among them.

First the Britney bitch, now this. Is there something behind that "Volunteer" thing y'all aren't sharing?

You know, when I was living there once upon a time I was told JC was sort of a gay nexus 'cause of ETSU... but wow. I never knew that was going on.

icky.

Duh. That's why they call it "Johnson" City.

...If you can't or won't do it in your own house or apartment, it might be time to reconsider doing it at all. Ick!

Sorry, gents: this behavior is a guy thing. We never read of women getting nabbed for public sex in the parks (etc.) that way.

I think that was, "Hey, bunboys! Get a room!

Nope ... sounds like funboys to me.

Are we referring to women with women? In the etc. that way? Or some other arrangement?

Of course, comatus - when it's a woman and a man having public sex, it's usually part of a juvenile call-in morning radio show prank.

Nope, just restrooms.

Whew, close one: thanks, Phlegm, I'd almost unlocked the door to my cobwebbed confessional. There's clarity, and then there's Too Much Clarity.

What struck one in the comment, however, was its similarity to the oft-repeated “Women do not do such things.”

Hate to tell you, but EVERY city has a "vibrant" spot or two like this.

Except Tehran, of course.

And Treefroggy owes me a new keyboard.

Its not like knoxville is exempt. beware the area around Kingston Pk and Northview Dr after dark!!

How do I know? Because I keep arresting people for doing....things...there (need mental bleach!)

Seriously, if you ever notice the no cruising signs in the bearden area, its cause of this same problem.

There are certain factoids I could have lived without ever knowing, thanks.
