POSSIBLE CAREER OPPORTUNITY

The New York Times has a story today about a man who rents himself out to bars and parties as a human carpet:

He took his act professional a few years ago and now mostly appears for a fee — his standard rate is about $200 a session, plus tips. Human carpeting is still a fairly wide-open market: Georgio knows of only one other person in New York doing a similar thing, a guy who calls himself Kevin Carpet.

It's all his mother's fault, she kept telling him that he always let people walk all over him.

Is he Oriental, perhaps?

People just walk all over him.

How long before his character ends up on Law & Dorder?

Beating the carpet is extra. Stanley Steemer is his swo9rn enemy. I guess it's much better than being a human doormat.

I think he's nuts.

You have to be pretty rugged to engage in that kind of acdtivity.

His slogan: "Hey, baby - let's shag!"

"who calls himself the Human Carpet"

He should'a called himself "the Dork." NTTAWWT...

Can he see the people standing on him?

You know he's only doing it to look up the women's skirts, right??

I bet he couldn't resist saying, “The more people who pile on, the better,” he continued.

I think he's nuts.

Probably so, cindy, but he makes it pay.

I'm tempted to say Only in New York but nutcases guys like him are probably all over.

When you think of sexual fetishes and carpet, that is hardly what comes to mind.

Can't you see this guy's Christmas list? Knee kicker, power stretcher, tack strips...

Is he a bare rug?

Horace, I think we should make him a THROW rug...

"I think he's nuts."

I concur, but the people who pay him to lie on the floor are even bigger nuts.

Speaking of odd sexual fetishes, Oprah featured an prostitute who worked at a legal brothel in Nevada. The prostitute said that she had a client who was single, and his coworkers always complained about their nagging wives. Out of curiosity, he took her out to dinner and back to her room at the ranch - and paid her to nag him and NOT have sex with him so he would know what being married was like. She actually got quite a few weird requests where there was no sex involved

btw, did anyone else initially read "bars and parties" as "bras and panties?" Just curious...

Old Joke: Know how to make a carpet moan ? Don't pay it.
( Yeah, I don't get it either. )

I wonder if the carpet matches the drapes.

"...a guy who calls himself Kevin Carpet..."

And then there's the guy called Walter who leans up against the wall. You know -- Walter Wall Carpet..?

Yes, and the sad part is I didn't realize it until I read this post.
