Keep your pants on, Staten Island

It comes only once a year. Today is the day when dozens of 20-somethings engage is the dumb, pointless stunt of riding the NYC subway with no pants on. Why do they do this? Because it's 'sooo crazy and hilarious, man' - right?

This idiotic "participatory event" is organized the attention-seeking group Improv Everywhere and you can find very detailed instructions on how exactly to ride the subway without pants on their Web site. Because that needs explaining.

Here is a sample:
You can wear fun underwear if you like, but nothing that screams out, “I wore this because I’m doing a silly stunt.”
Unsurprisingly Staten Island is left off the day's itinerary, probably because we don't have a subway. But if anyone finds someone riding Staten Island Railway in the tighty whiteys please take a picture.


  1. I dated a young lady who participated in the no pants subway ride.

    I had to break it off.

  2. its a day when the current skanks of staten island can walk around in whatever skanky panties they have and point and laugh at someone whos slightly over weight and laugh at them ,,,, just throwin that out there
