Comedian Fred Willard was just arrested for allegedly exposing himself in the
Tiki Theatre Xymposium--a porno theater at 5462 Santa Monica Blvd. in the Holly-
wood neighborhood of Los Angeles, CA, 90029. http://www.eonline.com/news/331631/fred-wi...n-theater-owner http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2012...lm-theater.html http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2189978/?quicklinks_select= http://entertainment.time.com/2012/07/20/p...m-fred-willard/ http://www.nydailynews.com/entertainment/g...ksEnabled=false http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/lanow/2012...awyer-says.html
The Xymposium with a depiction of a "Vice City" hidden package in front (which,
on the paper map, is on the W side of the "L"-shaped block that's NW of the "EAST"
of "EAST LOS SANTOS") is meant to look like the same porno theater except made
wider in front for a wall on which to display the hidden package and the real theater
no longer advertises live dancers. http://img107.imageshack.us/img107/1395/00...reen224a2ad.jpg http://cinematreasures.org/theaters/8407 http://www.yelp.com/biz/tiki-theatre-los-angeles
Maybe Fred could turn this into a plus: he could give missions in the next
GTA. You have to meet him here and...I dunno.

Passing thought: I don't think there's much of a case against Fred. If the
law is that it's illegal to publicly expose yourself to arouse others or where
someone is offended, and it's in a porno theater that distributes free lube and
travel tissues, you've got to be doing something more to offend the people there
than discreetly stroking it to break the law. You have to squirt it in some-
one's eye, use it to butter the popcorn in the lobby, wipe it off on the shirts
of everyone in the front row, poll the audience to look at it and come up with
the best nickname for it, ask the cashier to hold it while you go through your
pockets for change, loudly and repeatedly challenge the unwilling manager to a
sword fight--something like that.
PS: the practically unanimous reaction is summed up by comedian Albert
Brooks, who said he's still a fan but he'd give Fred a den and a computer. This post has been edited by glenster on Saturday, Jul 21 2012, 06:28
