Me, I’m off to flag every other instance of trans-species nudity, inorganic or otherwise, (like woman milking cow) that I can find. I see it as a fitting tribute to the spirit of the Society for Indecency to Naked Animals, which has taken a similarly modest and chaste view of what is and isn’t appropriate for public display.
