(plural: ‘streakers‘; for the right pronunciation of this word, please click here)
a person who runs, usually naked (without any clothes on), in public places for no particular purpose other than seeking public attention or as an indecent practical joke (prank),
When Ben got bored, he used to try several pranks to amuse himself, and being a streaker was one them, until one day while he was streaking across a hockey field during break time, the coach of a team caught him and slammed him on to the field until he was unconscious.
Though it seems fun, streaking in public places is not only an indecent act but also a crime, and streakers must be punished in such a way that it should send streaks of cold through the would-be streakers!
The organisers of the ‘Run 2 Help’ fundraising activity have instructed their volunteers to look out for streakers who might mix in with the genuine racers but may start steaking some where half way through the race to get instant cheap publicity.
