Sadly, this image was flagged as inappropriate nudity and removed from Facebook.
Apparently thier editors do not actually reserch. Time for their re-training or termination.
Here is one I will post to explain to them in simple words WHY it was not inappropriate.

and here is one "censored" even though there was no reason to censor.

           In late 2007, I became the "computer guru" to
actor Jeff Conaway.     What started with me  ridding
his computer of some nasty viruses,  built to a trust
and friendship over the next  few months as he had
me in to solve other computer problems or instruct
him on the use of his PC and laptop.  I was honored
when he trusted me with some of the the results of his creative  spirit,  inviting me over sometimes to
proofread one of his manuscripts and asking that I
offer my opinion on its development.     It came so I
would always look forward to those times when just
out  of  the blue he might call  me  just  to say   "Hey
Mike, how ya been?"   or  to  invite me to his  home
to watch a sports game or to just shoot the breeze.
Being accepted as his friend and buddy,  I  learned
that no matter what negative buzz the media might
print about the man and his problems,  he remained
a  truly nice guy,   and caring  of anyone  he called  a
friend.                              -   He will be long missed.
