'Naked Lunch' just doesn't sound appetizing to some people. A sandwich called the Skinny Dip, featuring sliced prime rib in a baguette roll, has been offered free of charge anyone willing to plunge naked from The Black Frog Restaurant's dock into a lake.

Since the free sandwich offer was introduced three years ago, owner Leigh Turner has found plenty of takers. 'We've had two or three a week,' he said. But now the promotion is running into trouble: A patron apparently suggested to selectmen that the activity be banned.

Should this restaurant`s `Naked Lunch` be banned?

No, I like places that have creative names like that.
Besides, it shouldn't matter what they are called as long it's not offensive and the food is good!

No, if it offends someone, they can just choose not to patronize that restaurant.

I'm pretty sure the name of the sandwich isn't what people have a problem with...

it shouldnt be banned, it should be encouraged

I thought it had something to do with the William S. Burroughs novel. i'd be disappointed going in, but i'm all about free food.

"Why?" is the only thing that comes to mind. Both why they would do this, and why anyone would care enough to try and get it banned

No. It's not like they're forcing you to strip down for a sandwich. It'd be a fun, once-in-a-lifetime thing

...and you'd get a free sandwich

No cameras please and I might consider

I agree with others. There are thousands of places to eat lunch. If you don't want to participate then go somewhere else. It's not that big of a deal.

If you don't want to do it, don't. If you don't want to go see someone do it, don't. Simple as that. No reason to try to get it banned just because you don't personally find it appealing.

Wht would anyone want to ban a bit of fun?
14 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Wednesday 11/14/07 - 5:00:43 PM EST (GMT-5)
That is the most awesome thing EVER.
14 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Wednesday 11/14/07 - 5:05:27 PM EST (GMT-5)
Oh, how boring. I was hoping it'd be a real life version of hassan's rumpus room.
14 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Friday 12/7/07 - 6:04:34 PM EST (GMT-5)
I would totally go for the free sandwich.
14 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Sunday 12/9/07 - 8:11:03 PM EST (GMT-5)
No. If it offends people, they can just go to another restaurant.
14 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Sunday 12/9/07 - 9:12:17 PM EST (GMT-5)
No. I'd totally do that for a free sandwich.
14 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Sunday 12/9/07 - 9:14:03 PM EST (GMT-5)
the first thing I thought about as the book...
14 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Sunday 4/6/08 - 1:18:16 AM EST (GMT-5)
Does the sammie come with au jus? Because that would totally affect my decision to do it.
14 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Tuesday 4/22/08 - 2:38:03 PM EST (GMT-5)
If someone has a problem with it, they need to go elsewhere.
13 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Tuesday 6/3/08 - 1:58:19 PM EST (GMT-5)
that is sick...
13 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Tuesday 6/3/08 - 2:01:56 PM EST (GMT-5)
If you don't want to see it, eat lunch somewhere else. It's no reason to spoil other people's fun.
13 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Thursday 7/24/08 - 10:21:04 PM EST (GMT-5)
I don't see the harm in it...
13 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Thursday 7/24/08 - 10:25:33 PM EST (GMT-5)
Prudes. People seriously need to lighten up a bit.
13 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Monday 8/4/08 - 10:01:23 AM EST (GMT-5)
