This young man displayed such heroism that Mandesty is willing to forgive his Classic Immodesty. From Rare Historical Photos:
This young crewman of a US Navy “Dumbo” PBY rescue mission has just jumped into the water of Rabaul Harbor to rescue a badly burned Marine pilot who was shot down while bombing the Japanese-held fortress of Rabaul. Since Japanese coastal defense guns were firing at the plane while it was in the water during take-off, this brave young man, after rescuing the pilot, manned his position as machine gunner without taking time to put on his clothes. A hero photographed right after he’d completed his heroic act. Naked.
I bet you didn’t notice the enemy in this photo. Image taken by Horace Bristol, 1944
“Hey, hon. Just risking your mortal soul while I risk grease burns. See how much I love you?”
Immodesty is dangerous to your soul but cooking topless is dangerous to your health. I guess it’s just as well. I suppose you should get used to burning flesh anyway. You’ll get a lot of that in Hell, mister.
Seriously, men. This is extremely unpractical.
Are all your clothes in the laundry, young man?
Men, I appreciate your effort into housework, but it is not enough. Put some clothes on and go make me a sandwich.
Perfect example of the Modest Domestic Man: Flipping your breakfast but never your soul
