French Police To Fine Shirtless Tourists

Idle 3

The locals of such seaside French towns as Cannes and St. Tropez are sick of looking at the pasty white skin and hairy chests or tourists who invade their towns every year. If you walk around shirtless you now face a $48 fine. From the article: "The tough laws came into force after locals were shocked by a group of British rugby fans who took off their shirts while watching a match. 'We're not saying there has been a general moral decline, but some people have complained,' Perpignan security chief Pierre Parrat said."

...and a woman sunbathing topless in Italy was questioned by police last week after a mother complained that the way she was applying suntan lotion was "troubling" her two young sons.

Yes - very troubling...
