** Bob is normally bare-chested. But then comes a time when he has to walk around in cold enough weather that he's forced to wear a long-sleeved shirt ''and'' close it at all times, lest he suffer pneumonia. True to himself, he keeps grumbling about how he hates his situation. Eventually, he does return to his usual wardrobe of choice--only to later have to disguise himself as Charles, who never goes shirtless in public. And just when Bob finally ditches the disguise, he gets invited to a close friend's wedding, and decides to not embarrass the friend by walking around with a naked torso. But just when things finally seem to return to normality, Bob has to wear a hazmat suit because there's been a leakage of a bio-chemical warfare agent in the neighborhood, which is highly transmissible via skin contact... At this point, he gives the middle finger to the universe and wears a specially-designed hazmat suit whose torso is transparent!
