I am into necrophilia, bestiality and sadism. Am I flogging a dead horse?

The rooster vs. hen issue is important. Dead or alive it has to be a hen. Don't want people to think I have come out. Wink Wink.

I have been called lewd and suggestive but its not true. I'm not lewd, I only suggest it. And I was framed for that charge of Mopery.(Exposing yourself to a blind person)

Mopery is jay-walking ("walking down the street with no clear destination or purpose"), not flashing a blind person.

"flashing a blind person"

Maybe that would be Dopery or Nohope-ery.

Oxford says:
Mopery, noun
1 informal the action of committing a minor or petty offense such as loitering
2 feelings of apathy and dejection.

There's lots of joking about it, but Mopery is basically hanging around in broad daylight with no obvious purpose or destination.

In some juristictions, it's still on the books as a charge to level at general purpose undesirables - and in some places, the cops still refer to drug dealers and other such as "Mopes".

"Mopery with intent to Gawk" is slowing down to rubberneck at the scene of an accident, by the way.

Like I wrote earlier....I only "suggest" it. How do you guys know so much about petty crimes and misdemeanors? A cop once told me that mopery was one of those terms that covered a broad base of violations, everything from petty theft, lewd behavior, public stupidity and yes..even jaywalking. While public stupidity is not a crime really, I think it should be...re:Michael Richards, Mel Gibson et.al. By the way..that was my cousin Jerome on "Cops" with his shirt off, handcuffed and bent over the hood of that police car. I wasn't even there I swear!

Dude, making any kind of headway as a busker takes decent street radar.

Well,busking is a petty misdemeanor in the vast majority of cities in the upper midwest U.S. ,I think. It's illegal in the town I work in,and you can't get a permit for it at all. Many cities will allow you to play in public places if you don't accept any money,but as soon as you put out a hat,or a case........

Last time I busked was in 92-93 Pike Place Market in Seattle. Didn't really need the radar as the place was always crowded. I think I still have my performers button somewhere. Definitely one of the funnest gigs I have done.
