2013 Jan 14 No Pants Day 2013: Did You Underdress On The Underground?
The annual worldwide No Pants Day, where commuters commit to casting off their culottes and ride the subway in their smalls, is a big deal the world over. So much so that the Daily Telegraph has to report it as No Trousers Day (in their delightfully-named "How About That" section) so that the British don't get carried away with how undressed everyone is. Here, too, people can get a little hot under the collar at the sight of bare human flesh. Taiwan's underwear-sporting examples got one strangely-named forum user going last year, and this blog seems to have everything you need (if what you need happens to be lots of photos of people who might be Chinese wearing underwear in public). But has the no pants scene made it to Beijing? No, but it has made it to Shanghai, as Beijing Cream has helpfully rounded the pictures up.
We understand why this has not caught on here. Between having to take so many layers off and not wanting to go outside in an atmosphere that can be cut with a knife, it's hardly worth it. But If you do have any pictures of Beijingers hitting the subway minus their slacks, post them in the comments.
