Watch out for thorns

Ugh. It looks like the bizarre concept of World Naked Bike Day has spread (thanks, or not, to Seattle’s “Body Freedom Collective”). September 10 is, apparently, World Naked Gardening Day.

People around the world are encouraged to tend their portion of the world’s garden clothed as nature intended on Saturday, September 10, 2005. World Naked Gardening Day is a nonthreatening way to nudge people into experiencing firsthand the innocent pleasure of being naked in nature.

Gardeningunderstood in the broadest senseis something that just about everyone likes to do from time to time, and just about everyone daydreams about doing so nude. World Naked Gardening Day will help people become more comfortable with their bodies while it reminds them of their relation to the earth. And it’ll be fun!

I can’t even garden sans gloves, let alone pants.
