Nude Olympic Torch Run!

Who knows if this is for real… had to post it though.

We already have a quorum for a nude torch run to happen after the official run. We are inviting you and your nude friends to join us. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to make an indelible statement for human rights.

Meet: 12:30 pm sharp near the front of Tacqueria Pancho Villa – Pier 1, the Embarcadero (waterfront side) the next building north of the Ferry Building. Look for torch(es) labeled “Human Rights”.

After the Official Run passes (estimate 1:10 pm), we will jog/walk fast to Bay/Embarcadero. When the Official Torch Run returns from the Marina District, we will follow the Official Run to the closing ceremony at Justin Herman Plaza. I estimate the total distance at a little over one mile. We are not exactly a protest. We are positively pointing out:

1. The original Olympic Athletes participated nude
2. We support Human Rights everywhere

The original Olympic athletes covered themselves with olive oil. I will bring Baby Oil for those who wish the look. Optional: Make a faux-torch, or two, labeled “Human Rights.” If you don’t have one, don’t worry. I am happy to relay a torch to you. Note: Don’t bother with a real flame because of Fire Marshall and permit issues.

Be sure to pass on this invitation to all interested parties.

If you have any questions, contact:
George Davis – the “naked yoga guy” – coordinator of torch run (415) 722-2968

    This is why I love SF. Not for the fog, or for the earthquakes, but for the weird activism.
