“Sorry I was late for work... a naked dancing woman caused a traffic jam” is now officially a valid excuse for employees throughout the US city of Houston, Texas, after that actual incident occurred during Monday morning rush hour.

The unnamed Lady Godiva, who apparently is “mad as hell and not gonna take it anymore”, threw away her clothes, climbed on top of an 18-wheel truck, and gave the world a show they usually only see on mud flaps.

The cause of her unusual behavior is unknown and she was taken to a nearby medical center after the incident without being charged.

After two minor hit-and-run incidents, the woman walked along Highway 290, blocking cars as she disrobed, and mounted the roof of a semi-truck's cab, according to the Harris County Sheriff’s Office.

The woman danced on the roof for two hours while police talked her down.

One YouTube witness is heard saying “she’s spittin’ a lot of truth right now” while capturing her shouting “black power” and “f*ck the p*igs”.

The naked dancer attracted a crowd who enjoyed her antics, but police needed help from a fire brigade truck to get her down from her precarious perch.

The compassionate handling of the situation likely stems from the collective empathy for anyone stuck in traffic.

Perhaps this story could be the sequel to the Michael Douglas film Falling Down.
