Don't think San Francisco is the only town who can come up with funny, gooffy, off-the-wall ideas. Last week in New York City, a bunch of people participated in the "Take the subway without your pants on" prank, organized by Improv Everywhere for the 6th year. The mission is very simple: have fun, of course, and give people in New York something to laugh about a little, and especially provide them with a story they can tell people about.

Ne vous imaginez surtout pas que San Francisco est la seule ville capable de mettre en pratique des idées amusantes, bizarres ou loufoques. La semaine dernière à New York, un groupe de gens a participé à une blague collective organizée par Improv Everywhere, pour la 6ème année consécutive. La mission consistait simplement à prendre le métro sans pantalons ce jour là. Le but est très simple: s'amuser, bien sur, et donner aux gens de New York l'occasion de rire un peu et surtout de quoi bavarder avec leurs amis.

Book title says: "Caught with your pants down? Don't worry, you're not alone."
Titre du bouquin: "Tu t'es fait avoir sans ton pantalon? T'inquiètes pas, t'es pas tout seul."

It's a fun idea, but wouldn't it have been smarter to do it in July rather than January?

Je soutiens la thèse depuis mes années universitaires que les Américains des Etats-Unis sont des grands ados.

Cette initiative vient soutenir mon point de vue. :-)

Neil: possibly, but this is more fun, I guess. :)

Otir: J'ai toujours entendu dire la même chose. :)

I love this idea Tomate and thanks for the photos! In a world that has become too politically correct, this is great! I wonder how many people made dates to meet afterwarrds?!

Absolutely hilarious ! But I'm afraid I'm much too shy to get up enough nerve to take my pants off in public... But what fun !

Any idea for a story works for me...I'll have to try this one for others living in foreign lands!

Meilleurs voeux!!
