Now then....

I bet that's got your attention hasn't it you mucky little oiks and oikettas? hehehe

While I was bolstering the floundering UK economy earlier on I got to wondering about the subtle differences between nudity and nakedness, as you do, and came across this rather fine poem by Robert Graves that does actually go some way towards uncovering (see what I did there?) the solution to this fraught and important question.

Take it away Bob.



The Naked and the Nude
Robert Graves

For me, the naked and the nude
(By lexicographers construed
As synonyms that should express
The same deficiency of dress
Or shelter) stand as wide apart
As love from lies, or truth from art.

Lovers without reproach will gaze
On bodies naked and ablaze;
The Hippocratic eye will see
In nakedness, anatomy;
And naked shines the Goddess when
She mounts her lion among men.

The nude are bold, the nude are sly
To hold each treasonable eye.
While draping by a showman's trick
Their dishabille in rhetoric,
They grin a mock-religious grin
Of scorn at those of naked skin.

The naked, therefore, who compete
Against the nude may know defeat;
Yet when they both together tread
The briary pastures of the dead,
By Gorgons with long whips pursued,
How naked go the sometime nude!


Personally I think that if you're naked you would like to be covered but if you're nude you dont give a monkeys who sees your naughty bits. Hence we have the nudist beach but no naked beach.

Any thoughts people?

The rudity of nudity has given me many thoughts Clive, but it may be better for all concerned if I keep them to myself.

If one is seen nude, is it rude? If one is rude, and wants to be seen nude....is that rude? Rude, nude, lewd, what a lovely world it would be, to be nude, without being rude or lewd, or maybe, a little risque, for the day, say Wednesday.


Thats my poem. and it beats all others by a country mile.

We get nekkid here! A turkey's head and legs are naked. As for nude, well we have Nude Gingrich.
