Do our undercover agents really have nothing better to do than hang out in XXX theaters?

The articles say it was a routine check of the place...and reading the previous description of what goes on there, the place warrants some checking.

That said: Even though it is on one hand funny, I feel really bad for the guy, just like I did for PeeWee. These things get blown so out of proportion. It is already sad that this is what he feels he needs to do to get off, don't mess up his career and make things worse.

Has ANY article played up the joke that he was playing with his TIKI, yet?

Sigh...if people would only read my books, they would be much smarter...

A funny/cool take on the event:

The article should have been titled:


Fred Willard caught rubbing his idol at the tiki theater in Los Angeles....


Ha!!

Well, finally Willard used the Polynesian Pop excuse!:

L.A. TIMES, July 27, 2012 | 7:37 am:

>>The 72-year-old actor appeared on NBC’s “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” on Thursday, joking about the incident that got him fired from a PBS show after being arrested on suspicion of engaging in a lewd act during a routine police inspection of the Tiki Theater.
“It's the last time I'm going to to listen to my wife when she says, ‘Why don't you go out and see a movie?’” Willard joked on the late-night talk show.
Willard said he thought adult theaters didn’t exist anymore: “I see this one, it had such a Polynesian exotic look to it. I say maybe there's hula dancers in here. Maybe there's mai tais. I went in and I realized I was the only one awake and sober and conscious.”<<

Yeah, sure, Fred!

Here's a shot of the Tiki in its glory days (not glory hole days!) when it had LIVE acts on a stage, from the Book of Tiki:



I am sad that I will probably never find out what the idea or story behind the cryptic "Xymposium" was - I swear it has nothing to do with the informal gatherings of lone Tiki fans I organized in the early 90s under the "Tiki Symposium" moniker at various homes:




THIS smut researcher could have asked that important question, as he finally went INSIDE:
http://gawker.com/5929380/a-day-at-the-tiki-the-la-porno-house-of-fred-willards-alleged-lewd-conduct

...which was kind of too late: What did he expect after the place just having gained such notoriety! All those happy hobo swingers described so vividly in the much more interesting eyewitness report on page 2 of this thread will most likely not frequent this establishment that soon again.

I understand that the "X' in "Xymposium" is a play of "Symposium" and "X-rated" - but who came up with the idea to use the scholarly term Symposium in the first place, and why? It's not that quickly associated with "Theater" and "Stage act"???

Me thought that that logo Tiki needed some perpetuation:

They both portray weenies? We discussed the "looking straight at ya" one in the Xymposium Tiki, but d'you think his red knees are part of a larger version like the Luau Tiki's knees? Should this be posted under "Weenie Faces in Strange and Weird Places"?
