Alert Reader Mike M sends me this cheerful little piece:
A Florida man is facing criminal charges for alleged “lewd, indecent and obscene acts” aboard a Boston-bound flight.
Yeah, fine, whatever, Florida Man doing strange shit, nothing to see here, move along. Until we read the very next sentence:
Donald Edward Robinson, 76, Bonita Springs, was arrested Sunday morning at Logan International Airport and charged by criminal complaint with one count of lewd, indecent and obscene acts.
Seventy-six years old? Man deserves a medal, not prosecution. Then further on:
Robinson is accused of masturbating and exposing his penis in front of a 21-year-old woman who was seated next to him. The woman recorded a 24-second video clip of Robinson allegedly touching and manipulating his penis through his pants shortly after the flight took off, authorities said. Robinson allegedly then exposed his penis. The woman tried to point Robinson out to a flight attendant after landing but was unable to point him out due to the number of people trying to exit the aircraft. Security footage captured Robinson exiting the terminal.
Spoilsports. As the title of this post indicates, we should all be so lucky to have such lascivious thoughts, so well past our threescore years and ten.
