No, I am deeply ashamed. It is no excuse that they enjoy the
work, entertain the crowds that gather (the showers are on public
promenades), get extra hidden tips from the swimmers (which, btw,
I am trying to stamp out or get a cut of). But I have checked
with my lawyers and it is perfectly legal if it is done in a
certain way. Apparently there is a little known 19th century
Australian law that allows it, if, in effect, the adult openly
dresses in the manner of Fagin and stoops around smiling with
coins jingling ostentatiously in the pocket.
