    For Therese Ralston and Donna Rosenthal, I see your question was a year or two ago. If you never got an answer, the term Naked as a jay came from the 1920’s and 30’s referring to men who were in jail. The original term was naked as a jailbird. Men who were brought to the jail or prison were sent to the showers given a kit and forced to walk naked from one end of the prison to the other. Jailbird was shortened to J-Bird then Jay.
