'Thong Man' leaves his inhibitions behind

It seems that the black thong was too restrictive for Joseph Gottschalk.
On Tuesday evening, the 52-year-old man, who recently gained notoriety for riding his bicycle around his South Side neighborhood in only a black thong, was arrested for stripping down to a sack. While the thong covered the body parts required by law, the genitals and anus, the tan bag around his genitals left his anus exposed, according to a police report.
"He sat off of the bike seat and exposed his anus to the vehicles behind him," the arresting officer stated in his report.
Gottschalk not only shed his minimalist riding suit, he expanded his route to Broadway, nearly nine miles from his Pennystone Avenue home. Police arrested him at Broadway and Appler after receiving "numerous complaints by people who flagged me down stating that they saw a male ride a bike naked."
Gottschalk was still in custody late Tuesday. His bond was set at $100.
Gottschalk received international media attention after the San Antonio Express-News wrote of his habit of riding around Southside Lions Park. Last month "Thong Man" was named grand marshal of a parade of thong-wearers vying for free Spurs playoff tickets.
In an interview the day of the parade, Gottschalk wore a flesh-colored thong and said he was pushing beyond his neighborhood.
"I am riding all over the place," he said. "I am getting bolder."

|Riding a bike with a sock on your "sack" is pretty darn bold. What's next? Seatpost without a seat?
Glad to see something was done. There's no reason a community should have to put up with such an idiot.
