Former senator explains difference between 'naked' and 'nekkid'

When a reporter from the Des Moines Register called former U.S. Sen. Alan Simpson to do a phone interview Monday, Simpson was “stark nekkid” and made no bones about it.

To his credit, the 82-year-old Republican did ask to take a moment to get things in order before continuing with the conversation.

But when he returned, Simpson did give us a bit of an education on the difference forms of nudity.

“Do you know the difference between naked and nekkid?” he asked. “If you’re naked, you don’t have any clothes on, but if you’re nekkid you don’t have any clothes on but you’re up to something.”

No word on what Simpson was up to. And we’re probably all better off not knowing.
