Bare-faced cheek as drunks strut their stuff.
Up to five burly men stripped bare after downing gallons of beer in the sticky heat before strutting buck naked along the Crumlin Road almost bringing traffic to a halt.
The Buffs, short for the Royal Antediluvian Order of Buffaloes, is a working class Protestant social club.
But the naked men had not been drinking there. Locals were stunned to find the frolicking nudists outside the premises.
Security sources said: "It wouldn't surprise us at all what goes in parts of this city. From what we know of this incident the men suddenly appeared outside the club.
"They must have come from a house party but among those showing off their wares were a couple of well-known UDA men."
The club, right in the heart of the UFF's Crumlin Road stronghold, was pictured earlier this year with supporters of Adair hosting a slap-up barbecue for their boss on his release from jail.
But the latest eye-popping parade by the drunken hard men has shocked even the most hardened residents of the area.
One eyewitness said: "The guys just appeared from nowhere. They didn't come from the Buffs club, they just seemed to be passing by.
"A few regulars who heard the commotion popped outside to see what was going on.
"They got a right eye-ful.
"The five guys were obviously sloshed. They're just lucky there were no peelers about at the time.
"The word is UDA bosses aren't too pleased about it."
