Chicago Polar Plunge 2014

If they did it just for kicks, we'd agree these plungers were a little crazy for wearing next to nothing and jumping into icy Lake Michigan during March's freezing temps. But they're taking a dip to raise money for the Special Olympics Chicago, too. Vince Vaughn and Lady Gaga showed up have shown up for the chilly festivities in the past—perhaps this year Arnold Schwarzenegger will reprise his role as Mr. Freeze?
