Moon Amtrak

Mooning the Amtrak trains: an American tradition

All day Saturday, July 12, 2008 is the 29th Annual Mooning of Amtrak in Laguna Niguel (Orange County) California.

In 1979, at The Mugs Away Saloon, K.T.Smith told his buddies he'd buy a drink for all who would run outside to the railroad tracks and "moon" the next train, which many did. The mooning tradition has prevailed, but there is no longer a volunteer to buy free drinks for thousands of "Mooners."

Want to join in? Just gather by the chain link fence across from Mugs Away Saloon and drop your pants when the train rolls by.

Note: Yes, I’ve blogged about this event before but it’s summer, dammit, and I can post reruns if I feel like it.

Moon over Amtrak


  1. last week we had the girls flashing the chopper and plane pilots who were fighting the fire across the canyon from us... we did feel that they were changing their flight patterns a bit until someone said "what about the girl pilots?". so i full monty'ed them and they stopped fighting the fire... huh....

  2. If they've been doing that since 1979, that fence has got to be funky.

  3. For fucks sake, it's like watching repeats on the BBC.

    Repetitive cunt.

  4. I have to say this repeat is not as bad as the 100 times I've had to sit through Thelma & Louise and the new'ish King Kong movie.

    That guy with the white shorts next to the dark haired tranny looks quite fit.

  7. See, you are not the only one who can repeat

  8. Do you think the driver of the train got a bum deal?

  9. Moon Amtrak sounds like a character from a bad sci-fi novel.

    I was going to agree with CyberPetra about Quite Fit Guy, but I've changed my mind. With his shorts around his shins he looks like a dwarf. Not that dwarves can't be fit, mind you.
    Also, his hair looks like it's been painted on.

  10. The driver was up at the crack of dawn.

    Dawn's the third on the right.

  11. I used To Moon but it's all behind me now............

  12. NATIONS: Whoa!

    It’s happy hour at Rancho First Nations!

    VOICES: Infomaniac Airlines would have circled in for a better peek.

    BEAST: Note that unlike you, none of these folk have been tempted to insert a banana up their botty.

    CSI: Have you met Beast (above you)?

    Now that he’s finished his week of hard labour at Café C, his idle hands would best be put to use cleaning the chain link fence.

    With a toothbrush.

    On his knees.

    With his bare bottom exposed to the sun.

    *checks for fresh batteries in camera*

    PIGGY: This is the first rerun I’ve ever done in more than 2 years of blogging.

    And I’ll point out that your original comment to this posting the first time it ran was much more imaginative. Here it is as follows:

    If they all had a shit dangling from their arses THAT would be impressive!

    Or how about tampon strings dangling from all the women?

    Actually, it'd be funny is both the men and the women had tampon strings dangling.

  13. CYBERPOOF X 4: For a moment I thought that you were one of IVD’s multiple personalities.

    Who is forcing you to sit through movies you don’t enjoy and why?

    I wondered who would be the first to spot the tranny.

    ISTVANSKI: It’s a bummer if he did.

    IVD: Moon Amtrak sounds like your drag name.

    If anyone knows anything about fit dwarfs, it’s you.

    The hair does look painted on…like a Ken doll.

    GEOFF: Up at the crack of dawn and headed for the NETHERlands.

    TONY: *raises glass*

    Bottoms up to the good old days.

  14. Well a lot of people actually. My friends, a few of my ex and my parents.

    Well as with my parents there wasn't really anything else to do at the time.

    Can you imagine I was the first to mention the tranny?


  15. How apt for July 12th. Mooning at travellers in the Orange County.

    Orange Arses

  16. SID: It all comes back to The Boyne for you, doesn't it ya Fenian fecker?

    Four fucking months of absence and that's all you have to say?

    You are about to pay.

    Big time.

    Stay tuned for upcoming posting.

  17. CYBERPOOF: Apologies for skipping over your comment.

    It was all the excitement what with SID returning.

    *kicks SID up the arse for old time's sake*

  18. I'm going to start this tradition at Manchester Victoria.
    Tony will join in as well. Hopefully Tazzy will turn up and the wonderful arse of Piggy.

  19. ffs...if i am baring my ass i better get something in return, outside the feel of a metal fucking fence!

  20. Arses.
    I want la lune sur rue Bourbon.
    I got a bulb over cheap beer.

  21. Kaz , I have been championing this sort of behaviour for years.
    Nobody appreciates my art ****sniff**

  22. and your response only mentioned SID again?


    I'm just so happy that I had someone with me earlier who loves me and wants to drink Pierre Norrelle. Mmmmmmm.

    Is that you in the blue top squeezing your big white arse so hard into the fence that you'll have fence imprints for days?

  23. I trust you always book a seat in the observation car MJ?

    Sid's arse is bigger than a Lambeg drum, and a tad less taut.

  24. that's just bloody brilliant! wouldn't try it here though......the train driver would stop and chase......he really sense of humour them guys....

  25. Wonder whether there are fright trains or passenger trains going through?
    Do passengers moon back?
    A collective anal happening in the official prude US. Are there only white arses? Where's the black arse community? Where are the Indian arses? Questions amount.

  26. We do that to the dayliner all the time.

  27. KAZ: Wonderful arse of Piggy?

    The Spanish sun has gone to your head.

    DAISY: Perhaps Beast can offer you something?

    MAGO: I find Bourbon Street tawdry and prefer my moon to rise over other more beautiful sections of le Vieux Carré.

    BEAST: You can't just shove a banana up your arse and call it art, you know.

    CYBERPOOF: That's me squeezing your head between the chain links so you have fence imprints on your face.

    GARFER: I make them stop the train so I can take pics from the observation car.

    Although I have to get out the wide-angle lens and do a panoramic shot to fit SID's fat arse into the picture.

    MANUEL: I'd stop the train for a look at yer arse.

    MAGO: Yeah, that's a lot of vanilla arse there.

    I volunteer First Nations to cross a couple of state lines and bare her brown arse to the trains.

    PISSOFF: That would explain the latest derailment.

    T-BIRD: Land of opportunity.
