Illustrating the no-no's of Brooksville's new dress code

Brooksville's new dress code mandating such things as deodorant use and proper attire, including underwear, could leave certain people out of luck and off the payroll, no matter how famous they are.

You won't be meeting Elaine Davidson, the world's most pierced woman, at the front counter at City Hall.

Brooksville police Chief George Turner won't be sending "Lizardman" Erik Sprague out on undercover duty.

Kari Smith of Utah showed a head for business when she sold space on her noggin for $10,000 to in 2005, but she wouldn't last long in the city's finance department.

This fine Victorian lady would have to cover up her tattoos and cleavage to work in the city.

Brooksville had a brief love affair with socialite Paris Hilton in 2004 when she and Nicole Ritchie were here for an episode of their television show, The Simple Life. But Paris' disdain for panties would get her canceled today.

Dennis Rodman may have twice been voted NBA Defensive Player of the Year, but Brooksville would take offense at his multiple piercings and tattoos. He won't be coaching kids at the Jerome Brown Community Center.
