If youre like us, the first impulse you had after seeing your first oil-soaked seagull was to rip your clothes off and hop on a bike. This Saturday, you can do just that in the company of strangers at the Miami World Naked Bike Ride to protest our nations dependence on that gooey, wildlife-killing, black gold. OK, so the organizers put an asterisk next to nudity, encouraging imaginative costumes and well-placed body paint. In other words, bare as much as you dare.
Will Miamians have the balls to bear all? And will all the exposed balls stop the tar balls from flowing this way? Probably not, but our only other idea is to stop up the leak with Sarah Palins giant bouffant.
The first ever Miami World Naked Bike Ride happens this Saturday at the sun-friendly time of 4:30 p.m. The ride starts at Biscayne and 10th Street, then heads to South Beach via Venetian Causeway.
