Just when the Naked Cowboy (Robert Burck) thought he had Times Square tourists all to himself, a competitor who bills himself as the Naked Indian (real name: Adam David) has launched a game of Cowboys & Indians IRL.

David has been beating his drum (seriously, he has a drum) across the street from Burck for a couple weeks now, and now Burck is threatening to sue for breach of his "naked" rights:

I've been here... 365 days, everyday for 13 years and change. He's only been here 16 days and missed two already.
