Today is “No Pants Day.” This is my contribution.
You’ll probably see a bunch of comic strips today where the characters are pantsless.
No Pants Day is held the first Friday in May. May 5 was Cartoonists Day and May 4, was of course Starwars Day – May the Fourth Be With You.
May is a busy month for the comics world – heck, my own birthday is this month and so many friends have birthdays this month.
Years ago, we used to have a “Gemini Party” where so many of us would get together and celebrate. One time we lined up for a photo – about 12 of us or so – in the order our birthdays fell on the calendar.
Anyway, “No Pants Day” was started by some college students in Texas in 2000. You might have seen the no pants subway rides – that is connected this some way.
