Subway riders to drop pants as part of global event

Train commuters in major cities worldwide will get a little cheeky Sunday as part of the annual No Pants Subway Ride that ... well ... is exactly what it says.

Pranksters will converge at train stations donned in shirts, shoes and no pants.

The only requirement is to act nonchalant - read, listen to your iPod, chat with your fellow riders - as you go about your normal business without any pants.

Dozens of major cities including London, New York, Washington, Mexico City and Tel Aviv, will take part in the rides, according to organizers Improv Everywhere.

Improv Everywhere started the No Pants Subway Ride in New York in 2002, according to its website.

The New York City-based group boasts of causing "scenes of chaos and joy" in public places.

    @jif, a troll posted the question at 2:13. Oui, I do speak French and passable Italian. I can figure it out, I hope.

    I recently gave a close friend a Blackberry because I have so much fun with mine.
    I don't like having to figure out what somebody else thinks that a picture means. That's why I learned to read and write.
    Hey–runes are fun, and I love the mentality of Wotanism.

    @ TORI:
    J'ai compris, mais tu parles la langue trop bien pour JIF.
    The hint was about going back over things.
