Something's missing here...oh! Pants! SEE ALL PHOTOS

Tuesday marked the fourth annual No Pants MetroLink Ride, a purposefully pantsless romp on public transportation adopted by STL Improv Anywhere after similar events in New York.

Organizer Mallory Nezam says St. Louisans miss out on happenstance encounters when they drive everywhere instead of taking buses or the MetroLink.

"I've just had so many interesting encounters with people in public places on transit," she tells Daily RFT. "We just don't have that opportunity very often. I started introducing this to make public space more interesting."

Ho hum. Boring scum. Get off my train. The regular riders, the clothed, decent, noble working people of this city are infinitely more inspiring, mysterious, and beautiful than you and your ugly stunt.
