You may have heard about the phenomenon that took place in towns and cities around the world last week. I'm speaking, of course, of the World Naked Bike Ride. WNBR events are, according to various WNBR websites, "a peaceful, imaginative and fun protest against oil dependency and car culture. A celebration of the bicycle and also a celebration of the power and individuality of the human body. A symbol of the vulnerability of the cyclist in traffic. It's the world's biggest naked protest: 50+ cities and thousands of riders participate worldwide."

They also appear to be a major hoot. Check out this one in Chicago. Try as I might, I can't imagine this happening along, say, Walnut Grove in Memphis. With a police escort, no less.
