Don’t You Hate Pants?

If you’re anything like us, you’ve always dreamt of riding the subway without pants. You’ll finally have your chance on Saturday, during the first ever Toronto No Pants Subway Ride.
The idea for a pantsless ride originally came from the good folks at Improv Everywhere in New York, where the ride is in its seventh year. While Toronto already imports far too much culture from other cities, this is just too awesome of an idea to pass up.
Participating is simple enough, all you have to is meet up at Bloor Street Boxing at 2295 Dundas Street West at 3:00 p.m. on Saturday, and be prepared to shed your jeans. Any other piece of clothing is allowed, just make sure you’ve got no pants. The fun (and more difficult) part is keeping a straight face as you ride the subway without pants. The goal is to pretend you don’t know anyone else without pants and that there’s nothing unusual about riding the subway in your exposed state. Check out the Facebook event for more info.
If you have the courage to show off your legs in public and be serious about it, then you too can be a King (or Queen) of No Pants!
…just make sure not to wear a thong. It’s rude.
