Stunt Of The Week (2)

It was a bad day on the London Underground last Sunday, I read this week. The benighted transport system was invaded by groups of Londoners taking part in the annual No Trousers Tube Ride.
Participants can wear hats, coats and scarves but south of the equator they only don underwear, socks and shoes. The prank was imported from New York where it is known as No Pants Day. According to the Stiff Upper Lip Society, who seem to have been behind it, “the point is to relax and enjoy the humour inherent in people not wearing trousers”.
For many, though, to whom the sight of a bloke manspreading in his budgie smugglers may have caused offence, the strike the following day must have come as a blessed relief.
