Thread: No Pants Subway Ride

    Default No Pants Subway Ride

    No Pants Subway Ride Flashes Through Today!



    No Pants Subway Ride 2009 (Flickr user jamie nyc)
    Just a reminder that today is Improv Everywhere's annual No Pants Subway Ride, so if you are confused as to why someone has chosen to go pantless on a 30 degree day, this is most likely the reason. The ride starts at 3:00 p.m. sharp at six different meeting points, and please, no phones! Improv Everywhere writes, "Please leave your cameras at home and resist the temptation to snap photos with your iPhone, etc. while the event is happening....During the ride we really want people to enjoy the experience of participating rather than documenting." If, however, you do manage to take some shots, send them to us at photos[at]gothamist[dot]com, or upload them to Flickr and tag them "gothamist." And please, stay warm!

    Hope they were wearing their knickers!

    I think it's only interesting if the pantless have nice legs (none of the above do) ... otherwise who cares?

    Doesn't need to be interesting, surely, just fun .

    I love the way everyone just takes it in their stride...with or without strides .

    They're all regular legs .

    Merry: I hate fun on the subway. I like polite blank stares, people reading books, people dozing off... stuff like that. I find people having fun on the subway to be irritating.

    Aw, come on, Fab, live a little . It's not as if there's any raucous behaviour or anything on the whole. Participants are instructed to act as if nothing out of the ordinary is happening.

    Here we are, all reading . (not all photos from this year)





    Polite blank stares:



    "Geriatric Secrets" LOL.



    Don't think nodding off on the train is cool, though .

    Nodding off is fine as long as you do it with out your mouth open. And no drooling please.

    There are a pair of legs shown in the first photo that I would not mind having sitting across from me (so to speak). And another pair shown in the 3rd photo from the top that pass approval.

    ^ Yeah, that's what I meant.

    I think I know exactly to which legs you are referring . I agree .

    Some of those people look like they really need to eat something. Either that or the vegan thing isn't working out so well.

    It's all just harmless fun. It makes people smile...that is, if they're not a fusty old killjoy. Careful...facial muscles might develop rigamortis if you never use them.

    Same thing with the guy giving "cooling" hugs in the London underground...just harmless fun. It breaks the monotony of blank stares.

    There are folks who just need to loosen their bladder pack a little and r-e-l-a-x.

    Grabbing the crotch always works, but another good one is to whisper in their ear, "I have tuberculosis".

    Socially inappropriate remarks suggest Coprolalia rather than TB.
