Buck Wolf’s Weird News Central: 10,000 Moons To Rise

LAGUNA NIGUEL, Calif. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Does pulling down your pants and going loco in front of a locomotive sound like fun to you?

That’s what will be going on this July in Laguna Niguel in Orange County, California, for the 30th anniversary of the “Mooning of Amtrak.”

It’s an event in which people stand before a chain link fence, drop their pants and moon a passing train.

The tradition started in joint called Mugs Away Saloon as an alternative to darts, quarters and other lame bar games.

About.com’s weird news reporter Buck Wolf says county officials were threatening to cancel this year’s Amtrak mooning which he compares to an Orange County version of Mardi Gras.

Says Buck, “The mooning has become a victim of its own success. It used to be a humble bar event. Now, an estimated 10,000 people are flashing flesh.”

The area also reeks of booze and urine.

The city council has agreed to let the event go on in July – but with new rules: No more public consumption of alcohol and no more urinating outdoors. Strangely, no one complained about the bare butts.
