No. I could equally ask, are you a London taxi driver? To show such paranoia speaks volumes.

Anyway, given the claims above about London taxi drivers being so knowlegable, it was a legitimate...

So if the place for bare chestedness isn't in your own home, where is it?

And I hate to disillusion you, but I suspect that his wife and teenage daughter have seen his bare chest many, many times.

Why are some DS members so averse to bodies?
