Small Turnout for Nude Torch Run

Categories: Politics


The protesters weren't the only ones stood up by the Ferry Building today. George Davis (aka the "naked yoga guy") hung around outside Tacqueria Pancho Villa for his army of nudists, but only two showed up. So instead of stripping down at 12:30 as planned, the nude run started an hour late, and only once the protesting crowd grew tired of the sidelines and started a parade of sorts through the streets.

"There are children here!" shrieked one pro-Olympics mama holding a large China flag. "Why are you naked!?" asked another. The original Olympic athletes were nude, Davis pointed out. And he and his barefoot posse marched on.
