A group of naked cyclists took part in a bike ride to protest against oil dependency and to "celebrate the human body."

Crowds gathered as about 100 people set off from Hyde Park corner, London, in the World Naked Bike Ride past some of the capital's most famous landmarks.

Most of them stripped fully naked for the 10km (6.2 miles) cycle past Piccadilly
Circus, Big Ben, Covent Garden, Oxford Street and the United States Embassy.

Yeah, that should do it! I can just hear Tony Blair now at 10 Downing Street: "My God! we must have oil independence now lest those people get naked again!"

As a side note, have you ever noticed that the people who insist upon getting naked at these protests are people who really shouldn't be naked? I mean, some human bodies simply should not be celebrated. Then again, maybe that's the point - give us what we want or we will horrify you with our nakedness.
