The Naked Guy at the Bookstore

Monday, January 31, 2011

Went camping with my sister last weekend. We each brought a daughter and a dog. So it was two sisters and their daughters, or two aunts and their nieces, or two cousins and their mothers--depending on how you wanted to look at it.

The evening before we left, the six of us (don't forget the dogs) went for an after-dinner walk. While talking to a group of fellow campers, my niece asked an older gentleman, "We're only going to be here one more day, what is the one thing we just can't miss?"

He smiled a little sheepishly, and then said we should go to the bookstore. After further inquiry he indicated that the proprietor is 'rather scantily clad.' Interesting. Until we found out that the proprietor was a male. Then it became INTERESTING!

For some factual information, read the blog at

I am still amazed at the marketing genius of this guy. We all know that 'word of mouth' advertising is the best...not to mention the cheapest.

After seeing this poster, we had to oblige...especially after my daughter had posted on Facebook that there was a naked guy at the bookstore (with her smart phone), and had already gotten inquiries back from her cousins.

So here's my niece with the owner:

He's a really amazing individual. We bought a city map that he had drawn (as was the poster in the first photo) and autographed. Besides being a musician and entrepreneur, he is on the local planning board and a Chamber of Commerce member.

So, if you're ever driving out Interstate 10, take a little detour on exit 17 (U.S. 95) just inside the western Arizona border to Quartzsite. Paul's on the east side of town on the main street.

    No doubt, this often describes the situation:

Paul's "popular" peter "picked" a "peck" of "pickled", patently perusing patrons


our moniker does not do you justice!

    Yes, CURTIOSITY...there is indeed a string holding "everything" in place.

I had to look...and that was up close and personal. He's also very much into manscaping. lol

    Sassy, what is that on his doo-dads? You mentioned a G-string in an earlier comment reply - as much as I have enjoyed the search, darned if I can see a string, b astring, c string or see a gee string. Think I'd better have another gander. % )

    Well of course we bought books...$20 worth (for used books)...that's why this is such a clever marketing scheme on his part. Get 'em in the door and they'll buy something while they surrepitously sneak peeks.

His G-string appeared to be made of suede or something similar. We tried not to

    I would just love to see that on the Kings Road Chelsea! He'd freeze his bits off! Even in summer, let alone in January.

    Well, technically he wasn't naked.

If it's good enough for the citizens/law enforcement of Quartzsite, Arizona, then it should be good enough for

    Ok so who won the bet?

Will your daughter be doing all your housework for a week?

I can just imagine the start of the conversation " I bet you i can post a piccy of a naked man on my sparkpage and no one will complain.........................."

Well done put your feet up after all what are daughters for?

    HAHA...this is hilarious....!! He's got quit the abs going on for an old man.....but then I guess he would have to keep in shape to run around like that and expect people to come back.

  Does he use a "butt cloth" when he sits down? I hear that nudist camps require those!
