But for one detail, this would be little more than your standard ambling exhibitionist news item.
The strange call came in to police just before 10 p.m. last night. The caller reported seeing a naked man strolling in a parking lot near Milner Avenue and Morningside Avenue, police say.
However, before police could arrive, the man got into a van with more naked men and left according to a Toronto Police Operations tweet.
Yes, there was a troop of them. What could they have been doing, I wonder. Were they just trying to get noticed? Were they playing truth or dare? Did one of them lose his wallet? It’s not as though he had anyplace to put it, so that’s as likely as anything else.
Unfortunately, we may never know. The person who called them in didn’t manage to get their license plate number and it seems police were unable to track them down.
Welcome to the newest great mystery of our time, ladies and gentleman…clothed or otherwise.
