Default Full Moon in Queensland !

Well, does this bloke have a point ?


A man from Australia's Gold Coast is to claim in court he has a constitutional right to "moon".

"Lawyers for James Albert Ernest Togo, will say he has a right to drop his pants and flash his buttocks at police as an expression of free communication.

Togo will appear in the Coolangatta Magistrate's Court charged with behaving in an indecent manner under the Queensland Vagrants, Gaming and Other Offences Act of 1931.

He was arrested on August 12 when he allegedly mooned police in Coolangatta, reports The Courier-Mail.

Togo's lawyer, Eugene O'Sullivan, will argue recent constitutional rulings override the dated Vagrants, Gaming and Other Offences Act.

And in keeping with Commonwealth law, Mr O'Sullivan has sent all attorneys-general, both state and federal, notice of his intention to argue that mooning police should be categorised as a legitimate freedom of communication under the Constitution."
