My love for the Metro has no end

According to the DCist, a no-pants Metro ride is planned this Saturday. While I'm generally opposed to the idea of pants (ask me about my once daily "discussions" with Chris on the topic), I cannot sanction such a spectacle. My retinas are too valuable.

oh come on, it sounds like a perfect misadventure on the metro, with pictures!

Rachel, you have a very valid point. I'm thinking Chris and I need to run to Georgetown on Saturday between 2 and 4 p.m.

For official business, of course.

i know i already commented on this, but it just dawned on me.

these people will be putting their uncovered rears on seats, doors, bars, and other metro surfaces. where you and others will 2 days later be putting your rears, hands, and legs. and you KNOW the metro cleaners don't do a thorough cleaning! IF they even clean at all!
i'm even more grossed out by this than i orginally was.

Okay, I don't want to be anti-humor here, but Shaniqua, you make a very important (and frightening) point. You know I'm aware of the current germ levels v. lack of sufficient janitorial staff and cleaning accouterments.

If you'll excuse me, I'm gonna go have a hearty cry.
