Just wondering if it’s the uni students’ schoolies time of the year? Yesterday afternoon approximately 6 pm as I had the pleasure of strolling over the western side of Commonwealth Bridge there was a group of young lads sans clothes (apart from runners) that decided to do a nudie run across the bridge. They galloped up the stairs at the northern bank showing all their worldly goods and then shrieked and hastily attempted to cover up when they saw that all and sundry were obviously watching.
Whether it was a dare, or they were drunk or just naturists I don’t know – but off they went, running as fast as their legs could carry them. The number of pedestrians, joggers and cyclists doing a double take and having a “what the hell is going on??” moment was huge and half of them were cacking themselves too. A number of car drivers honked – whether it was in support or disgust I wouldn’t know. And there it was.
But wait – and in honour of the great AB Patterson, one was there, a stripling – a small and weedy beast – something like a racehorse undersized… This chap decided once was not enough. So back he came – running towards me. Mate – on a cold day some things are best left unseen.
Whoever they were – I’m glad you were all obviously having fun.
