OTHER MORE RECENT INCIDENTS OF MOONING

In November 1987, an intruder interrupted the broadcast
signal of Chicago PBS affiliate WTTW with a strange video
of himself dressed to resemble Max Headroom. At one point
in the video, the man exposes his buttocks to the camera
before being spanked with a flyswatter by an accomplice.

In June 2000, a mass mooning event was organized outside
of Buckingham Palace in the United Kingdom by the Movement
Against the Monarchy (M'AM). The idea was for anti-monarchists to show
their dislike of the British monarchy by performing a mass mooning at
their home. However, a large police presence prevented a large scale
mooning, but even so,
a few individuals mooned. Some were arrested but others managed to
pose for various newspapers, etc. This event is known as the Moon
Against the Monarchy event.

The Annual Mooning of Amtrak is a long-running annual
tradition in Laguna Niguel, (Orange County) Calif. where
many people spend all day mooning at Amtrak trains;
some even ride the trains on that day just so they can
witness the event. This mooning has spawned a chain
of "train moonings" throughout the entire country

On July 13, 2008, local authorities cracked down on the
practice after a reported 8,000 people participated in
the festivities. However, the festival still continues
annually but with more police supervision.

In the 2003 World Athletics Final in Monaco, Tim Lobinger
mooned the crowd on the podium after winning the pole vault.
He was fined $5,000 (US).

At the 2005 UK Music Hall of Fame awards ceremony,
musician Ozzy Osbourne mooned the crowd after a set
he had played with his group Black Sabbath.

On Jan. 9, 2005, Randy Moss of the Minnesota
Vikings pretended to moon Green Bay Packers fans afyrtr
scoring a touchdown. He was fined $10,000 by the NFL.

On Oct. 24, 2011, economic inequality protester
Liam Wariner of Sydney ran alongside the motorcade of
Queen Elizabeth II and a waving Prince Phillip with an Australian
flag clenched between his exposed buttocks
before being grabbed by police.

"MOONING" APPARENTLY NOT A CRIME

In 2006, a Maryland state circuit court determined that mooning is
a form of artistic expression protected by the United States
constitutional right of freedom of speech.

The court ruled that indecent exposure only relates to exposure of
the genitals,adding that even though mooning was a "disgusting" and
"demeaning" act -- and, in addition, had taken place in the presence
of minors, "If exposure of half of the buttocks constituted indecent
exposure, any woman wearing a thong at the beach at Ocean City would
be guilty."

Defense attorneys had cited a 1983 case of a woman who was arrested
after protesting in front of the U.S. Supreme Court
building wearing nothing but a cardboard sign that covered
the front of her body. In that case, the District of Columbia
Court of Appeals had ruled that indecent exposure is limited
to a person's genitalia. No review of the case by a higher
court took place since prosecutors dropped the case after
the ruling.

In California, an appellate court found in 2000 that mooning
does not constitute indecent exposure (and, therefore, does not
subject the defendant to sex offender registration laws)
unless it can be proven beyond reasonable doubt that the
conduct was sexually motivated.
