Write the Caption: Towel-Clad Man Walks Along State Route 520

Perhaps there is a reasonable explanation for this man walking along 520 in a towel. If so, the Washington State Department of Transportation doesn't know it.

A towel-clad man was spotted walking along State Route 520 this afternoon, in a photo tweeted by the Washington State Department of Transportation around 3:15 p.m.

Officials with the Washington State Department of Transportation said that the department had no additional information about the man, who was spotted in a towel draped around him like a toga near the 98th Avenue Northeast camera.

Patch has contacted the Washington State Patrol for additional information about the man and will update if we hear anything.

But if you have any ideas about what is going on in this picture, or if you saw this man, please feel free to tell us in the comments.

"I always wear a towel to wipe off mud during election years." "I, King Cotton, command the traffic to divert." "That is the last time I'll make a humorous wager against the Seahawks." "Cotton, the fabric of my life." "I wonder if the papers will run a caption contest when they see this." "Next time I'll listen, and use the anti-static-cling sheets in the dryer."

I don't always go wandering on state highways dressed in a towel, but when I do, I drink many Dos Equis. I am the most interesting towel wearer in Bellevue.

I can't afford clothes or gas, but I'm getting to the Obama campaign headquarters if it kills me.

Oh I've been there before.. . He just got really drunk went home with a troll and left his clothes strewn about her place. He woke up, realized what he had done, saw the towel, and had to make a quick getaway.. I guess this is one hell of a walk of shame.

Mumbling to himself: "'Get these new clothes,' they said. 'You'l look as good as the Emperor,' they said. 'Only competent people can appreciate them,' they said. If that kid with the towel hadn't come along and told me 'You're not wearing anything at all,' I'd be walking along naked. .... 'Get these new clothes,' he said. ...."

"You know the economy is at an all time low when Bellevue residents start bathing in the lake to save money on water" "In a desperate attempt to get a Republican president back in the White House, east side residents resort to donating the clothes off their back" "It was just one little affair, it didn't mean anything; at least she could have thrown my clothes out too"

Hey, he ended up on the wrong bridge, then "Aurora" Craig.
