Time to over the beer belly?

Before you go baring that beer belly in public, youÂ’d better check to see if your need to be free flies with the locals.

This summerÂ’s skyrocketing temperatures have led local lawmakers in the UK to consider bans on public nudity of the middle-aged shirtless man variety, The Daily Mail reports.

"There is a problem," government minister Nicholas Bennett said. "In my part of the country we are trying to revitalize the main shopping precinct.”

"But one of the things that is depressing for anyone going shopping is the numbers of shaven-headed men, mainly in their 30s and 40s, who seem to think people want to see their torsos."

The proposed laws would work just like the statutes that ban drinking in the streets or loitering: if you choose to lose your gut cover, a cop can choose to remove you from public.

"It is an unfortunate thing, but those men who like best to bare their stomachs are the ones who have too much stomach," Bennett said.

Though some towns doubt the feasibility of protecting the public’s eyes from these gut-loving guys’ battle with the bulge, Bennett and his backers insist that a little modesty would go a long way — especially in the eyes of the offended.

Instead of worrying about middle-aged men covering their bellies, why don't they just let the womenfolk bear their chests? That would work too!

That would not be a good idea. Since, just like the men, the women who would be most likely to do this are ones you don't want to see doing it.

I doubt anyone would have a problem if the only men showing off were the buff ones.
