What Am I Missing?

Why is showing up to the ED naked suddenly in vogue?  I already posted on the two naked dudes from over the weekend, and now I have my third in less than a week.  Is the Big City hosting a nudist convention?

My most recent gentleman was discovered running down the street naked by police.  EMS delivered him to our critical care area in a tightly-wrapped sheet, where he received an altered mental status workup.  Patient denied knowing where he was running to/from, why he was naked, and where his clothes could be found.  

Personally, I try to limit my naked running to the summer months - it's just too cold at night now.  Maybe he was hoping the patches of fungus he had growing all over his body would keep him warm?
