"My day is filled with being the Naked Cowboy, working out, eating -- but mainly reading."

Who knew that the Robert Burck, a.k.a. the Naked Cowboy, was a prolific reader? He even reads Kant! You can read about the N.C.'s reading habits here. I wonder if he's read Beloved - it's the best American novel of the past 25 years, you know.

By the by, Burck isn't actually naked when he walks around New York City with his guitar, boots, and cowboy hat. If he did walk around naked, he'd be arrested for public indecency. He wears a thicker version of the classic white brief, which is basically what many wrestlers on WWE wear (albeit in various colors); also, it's really no different than competitive swimmers walking around in Speedos. The N.C. strums on his guitar while walking around Times Square, and people pay to pose with him for pictures. He has a website, I believe - no, I'm not going to offer a link (there is no actual nudity on the site, but there are many photos of Burck in his underwear).

Why in the world is Brownie even posting about this guy? Well, one more interesting thing about Burck is that on his right arm, he has a tattoo of a head that appears to be Jesus. I don't know if this is some form of spiritual statement on Burck's part or not, but I don't believe it to be very Christ-like to walk around in public wearing only underwear, a hat, and some boots.
