The Naked City

DC traffic... it's always something aound here. Everybody's heard about what a zoo DC traffic can be. And sometimes you just don't know whether to laugh or cry.

Like today... a backup on the Beltway, partially caused by an accident. And I guess one of the participants caused a bit more rubber-necking than usual... seeing as how he was apparently naked and all. After what was reportedly a minor fender-bender, dude got out of his rental car, stripped down to his birthday suit and ran around the traffic lanes for 45 minutes.

Now that I think on it, this is the second or third naked traffic incident in the last few months. What the heck? It isn't even all that warm out. I don't imagine that streaking down the road in 40 degree weather is really going to show a man at his best, but obviously thats the least of their worries.

and can you imagine trying to explain why you're late to work? ''Yeah, I'm gonna be late today... Naked Guy.''

DC traffic... it used to be exploding tankers on the beltway, now its nudity. Always something.

Hee Hee. Do you remember that terrible ice storm about two months ago where the woman on 395 (between Duke Street and the Beltway) called into a radio program and admitted to peeing in the flower pot because she was stuck there with no where to go - literally? I didn't think anything could beat that ... but the recent naked incidents ... all I can say is WHAT THE HECK?!?!?
