Or, why not celebrate a bit of birthday suit bravado?

By Ovid Publius Hadweenzic, Ph.D. (Professor of Happiness & Delight), whose easy-as-pie attitude to life makes him a shoe-in for Dean of Doodling at the Creative Loafing Institute, (dedicated to the long lost art of lingering, lollygagging or just hanging out in a lackadaisical or lounging manner in the company of oneself or other merry-minded folk)

At last count, there were 95,600 websites dedicated to "birthday suits".

Little is known about the origin of "birthday suits" or for that matter their devine designer.

The good news is that no two birthday suits are alike. The bad news is you can't exchange them. All of which brings me to a rivetting conclusion.

What the world needs now is a special day dedicated to honoring the humble birthday suit. After all it's the one which one enters the world with and is obliged to wear for life, whether we like it or not!

While body artists, Lady Godivas and naturists might have a field day with this event, it is likely that prim and proper politicians not to mention prudish pundits fearing a "brouhaha" would boycott this threadbare occasion.

Such an egads event however calls for few tittering taglines just to get things started:
