Happy 60th Birthday... The Bikini

Politicians and public commentators are decrying the turkey-slap affair, while North Korea is test-firing missiles. What a perfect backdrop to commemorate the 60th anniversary of... the Bikini!

Of course, there is every argument that the bikini as a concept is significantly older than than a mere 60 years, as the above Roman mosaic illustrates.

Hi TP, I like the bikini in the mosaic, very Nigella-like. I bet the Romans never thought of a tankini, no skimpiness or flowy abundance with those. :-) And yes, very apt given the Big Brother / bomb testing news!
