If you can get past the first 45 seconds, where it appears a Monkey was operating the camera, this video gets pretty watchable. I witnessed this "event" start to finish from my Park Central balcony. What was most interesting is that the "Peachtree Stripper" had an all over tan, wihout nary a tanline. For you trivia buffs, the location where the streaker was finally take down by police was almost the exact same spot where Margaret Mitchell was fatally struck by a taxi cab in 1949. I doubt that Peg would be amused.

That's it? Come ON. I expected some struttin' and runnin' !! What's a wag other than a good start? Don't give it up so easily....make those over-fed police work off a few calories and chase you 'round a bit...Grease up and tease them....as you slip once more through their latexed and leathered fingers...

The MORONS in blue! It takes 5 squad cars to take the man into custody?! To make it even easier for the donut bingers, is that the man voluntarily laid down on the street to be handcuffed!! I'm surprised one of them didn't walk over and shoot him in the head!!!
