The 7th Annual No Pants! Subway Ride

no pants

We’ve all been there: you find yourself on the subway — maybe on your way to work, maybe on the way to a bar at 2 in the morning — desperately wishing you could just…take your pants off. But of course, you don’t, conformist pansy that you are, instead allowing society’s stifling morals to keep you down. But now there’s hope! check out the 7th Annual No Pants! Subway Ride.

As soon as the doors shut at the stop before yours, stand up and take your pants off and put them in your backpack. If you’d like to use a briefcase, purse, grocery bag, or whatever instead of a backpack that’s fine too. If anyone asks you why you’ve removed your pants, tell them that they were “getting uncomfortable” (or something along those lines.)

However, one disclaimer:

You are responsible for your own pants.

And before you nudists get all excited, it’s no PANTS, not no CLOTHES. Keep those underwear on, cowboy.
