249 - No Pants!

40 - Perform in a “Improv Everywheremission - DONE (+1) - I normally do not post "+1s", but I think this one deserves repeating. Kelly and I took the train down to Grand Central (also helping with #4) to join improv everywhere for their "No Pants! Subway Ride." The No Pants! Subway Ride is annual event staged by Improv Everywhere every January in New York City. The first ride in 2002 included 7 participants, all male. One participant entered the train pantless. Then, for the next 7 consecutive stops another "agent" would join him. They pretended not to notice each other, and if asked claimed that they “just forgot” their pants. On the 8th stop, someone came through with a duffle bag selling pants for $1. This year it grew to about 3,000 participants in NYC. Riders met at meeting points spread out all over the city (we met in Central Park) and converged on Union Square. The high was 28 degrees. There were also No Pants rides in 43 other cities around the world in 16 countries!
