Without any having meltdown performances or idiotic statements by athletes over the past week, or at least none that interested me, I was left with finding our “looker” outside the world of sports. In fact, I was kind of hoping that Rory would shoot another 80 in his final round yesterday at the Congressional just so I could have something to write about, but no, instead, he decided to break the record for the lowest overall score in U.S. Open history. Oh well…
As an alternate, this morning, I stumbled across an event that took place worldwide on Saturday — 8th Annual World Naked Bide Ride. As this article states, thousands of people participated in the event from cities around the world, including in U.S. cities such as Madison (WI), Portland (OR), and Brooklyn (NYC). Apparently, according to this wiki, the ride “demonstrates the vulnerability of cyclists on the road and is a protest against car culture” and to “celebrate cycling and the human body.”
In other words, these people are weird by thinking they have to prove a point by showing off their junk. What happened to simply protesting outside of a building or something?! Or, what about signing a petition to take to your city council representative?! No, let’s go straight to riding around naked on our bikes. Yep, that sounds like a fabulous idea.
Well, for the purposes of this post, it was a fabulous idea. Please, people, keep it up, or down depending on if you have a penis or not. BTW, did you know that in Portland it is legal to be naked in public. There you go, folks. Follow this link to some more photos of people who engaged in this ludicrous act. Enjoy!
