Here's an annual tradition that should have been planned for June, not January, but nevertheless, the sixth annual No Pants! Subway Ride happened as planned this Saturday in NYC.

From one "de-pantsed" participant, Melissa Poles, 31: "I'm standing here with no pants on. I'm awesome." I couldn't agree more, Melissa. You rock.

The 200 person event was staged by a group called Improv Everywhere, who deliberately cause "scenes of chaos and joy in public places."

Congrats to those who defrocked for their art. To everyone else, would you do this? I think if we work at it, we can make going pantless all the rage for Spring '07. I'm game. Who's with me?
