Pantless Idiots

no_pants.jpg If you missed it over the weekend, you can check out Improv Everywhere's new website which describes in visually painful detail their 2nd annual "No Pants" subway ride. Several readers contacted us to report on the event. The cops eventually showed up and freaked out, called in backup (25 more cops) and arrested 8 people. We choose to take the high road and not report on such silliness in advance however, today, my inner child has gotten the better of me.


This Saturday, starting in a TBD location in Brooklyn is the 3rd annual Idiotarod (yes, that's IDIOTarod not Idiotarod). It is New York's version of the great Alaskan dogsled race but instead of a pack of dogs it is people, and shopping carts replace the dogsleds. The event starts in Brooklyn, runs into Manhattan, and will end approximately five miles later. Last year 500 runners competed but an unknown amount finished. Drinking is encouraged as it "makes the pain go away".

It's BYOSC (bring your own shopping cart). Compete at your own risk.
