"Naked Cowboy" Running For Mayor


It looks like I have a little Times Square theme going on today. Earlier today I posted about the TKTS booth, and now I'm posting about perhaps Times Square's best-know "resident" - The Naked Cowboy.

The Naked Cowboy (who's neither naked nor a cowboy, discuss) has roamed around Times Square in cowboy boots and tighty whiteys for the past 10 years. He earns his living by charging tourists a small fee for posing for pictures. He's been known to do this even in the dead of winter...



But it seems as if The Cowboy (real name: Robert Burck) now has his eyes on an even bigger job - Mayor of New York City. According to the New York Post, he will announce his official candidacy tomorrow - challenging incumbent Mayor Mike Bloomberg.



Mr. Cowboy Burck states:

"No one knows how to do more with less than yours truly, and that's the kind of thinking I plan on sharing with my fellow New Yorkers when you elect me," he said, promising new ideas on tax breaks, tourism, gay marriage, transit and homeland security.


Hey, a Naked Cowboy would probably be a better Mayor than Rudy Giuliani was ...

Intersting. I think that's one politician gaureenteed to get people talking, and even pay attention to him for a while.

OH, and can I give a shout out to Linda Richman?!

Yes, I think he is nice to look at, too. But now I have to figure out if he will still be charging for pictures when he runs... Seems to be his form of income, so can he afford to not do it? So, is this just a ploy to make a butload of money? Maybe he is smart enough to be mayor...
