If You Were Naked and Painted Orange on the Katy Trail Yesterday, DPD Wants a Word

And now, from KXAS-Channel 5, the story of the naked, "terracotta-colored" man spotted along the Katy Trail Thursday morning. At first, the woman who saw him thought he was a statue. Till he moved. And, please, do keep in mind: "This is very offensive and something that is not funny, not funny at all," says DPD Senior Corporal Janice Crowther. That said, personal trainer Nancy Cole will not be kept off the Katy Trail: "It's so lovely, even with naked terracotta men." And a slogan is born. Alas, too late for the Friends of the Katy Trail's T-shirt contest.
