The low here today in Mad Town is 11 degrees and the high is 28, but the sun's supposed to stay out all day and that means it's an excellent time to continue conducting my ongoing photo safari: Dudes Around Here Break Out the Shorts REAL Early.
One of my favorite things about Madison is the way the men of this town treat shorts. Many wear them all year round--the Fed Ex guy who comes to my house is an all-shorts-all-the-time guy and when I asked him why he said simply: "My legs don't get cold." But even if you set aside these extreme cases, you'll still find a lot of people around here breaking out the shorts at the slightest provocation.
So, in the spirit of past photo essays, People Whose Asses Are Wider Than Their Shopping Carts, Females Bringing Their Own Pillows On Planes, I present: Dudes Around Here Break Out The Shorts REAL Early. One thing to note: Unlike People Whose Asses Are Wider Than Their Shopping Carts, Dudes Who Break Out The Shorts REAL Early tend to be quite fleet of foot and therefore are harder to capture on film. That is why most of these shots are from behind. If you sight your own early adapter to short pants, please include the date and ambient temperature and send me the photo at firstname.lastname@example.org.
