Friday Frolics and Quickies All in One...Bikinis

The holiday weekend slowed things to a craw here at Shedd's Spot. Two baseball games and a lot of beer don't lend a lot of time for blogging.

According to Wikipedia, today (July 5th) marks the 63rd anniversary of the modern bikini. Of course, the modern two piece bathing suit known as the bikini was named after the Bikini Atoll, which was the site of U.S. nuclear tests between 1946 and 1958. An interesting aside here is that I once worked for a CPA firm that did the accounting for the the trust fund which managed the funds alotted to the Bikini natives by the U.S. government many years after the nuclear tests.

And staying on the subject of the bikini, I found it a little disturbing that so many women had the need to post videos on YouTube of their facial reactions during their first bikni waxing. Check it out for yourself.

Although she's not in a bikini, I don't think there are too many men in my age group who don't vividly remember this photo of Cheryl Tiegs from the 1978 Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue.

Ending this post with the past due frolic, here is a related Bud Light commercial from a few years back.
