Parading around in the buff

You know, I'm usually fairly wary of events that feature public nudity, seeing as how I've often found that the kinds of people who typically want to parade around nude in front of people are usually the last people you'd want to see without clothes on. But this one might be the exception to that rule:
A New Zealand court has allowed a parade of topless porn stars on motor bikes to proceed on the main street of the country's biggest city, local media said Tuesday.

Auckland City Council had sought a court injunction to stop the "Boobs on Bikes" parade, scheduled for Wednesday, saying it breached a bylaw banning offensive public events.

But Judge Nicola Mathers said while opponents may find the parade offensive or tasteless, the fact that 80,000 people had gathered for a similar event last year meant a significant number of people did not agree with the critics, New Zealand Press Association said.
Really? Tens of thousands of people would show up to an event where they could get a free look at nekkid porn stars? I'm sure they were just there to shake their fists and shout their disapproval at the participants. Yeah.
