National Underwear Day 2013 Makes Hundreds Strip to Their Skivvies (PHOTOS)

national underwear day 2013Happy National Underwear Day! What, you didn't know? That was today, and chances are you participated, whether you were conscious of it or not, simply by wearing underwear. Congratulations. If this sounds like another one of those ridiculous, made-up holidays, er... you're right. But some people take the day pretty seriously -- namely the people who gathered this evening in Times Square to see if they could break the world record for "Largest Group of People Gathered in Their Underwear." The previous record was set at 2,270. 

I wandered across town today to see if that record could be beat. As of the first half hour or so it looked like they were still several hundred short of breaking that record. But who knows -- I wasn't able to stay for the very end, so maybe they got more participants. In case you're wondering, I did NOT join in the fun. I have a little boy who would die of embarrassment if his mother hung out in Times Square in her skivvies. (No, this does not mean I went commando.) But I did take photos. You kind of want to see them, right?
