This Seems Like a REALLY Bad Idea

Legal nod to work in the nude:

A judge in Oakland, California, has told a carpenter he can carry on hammering nails and sawing wood in the nude after finding him not guilty of indecent exposure.

Alameda County Superior Court Judge Julie Conger ruled that although Percy Honniball was naked, he was not acting lewdly or seeking sexual gratification.

Honniball, 51, was arrested when he was spotted building cabinets in the buff at a home where he had been hired to work. He said he liked to work in the nude because it was more comfortable.

So he's okay, at least until OSHA finds out. I can't help but think there's some rule against exposing your dangly bits in close proximity to power tools.

Why do I have this awful image of testicles and a nail gun? Hopefully the guy was smart enough to weat safety goggles.

Still chuckling as I pour myself a fifth cup of coffee.

Joanie: you should REALLY stay away from power tools.

Recently, a man somewhere slipped and, clothes or not, nailed his testicles to the roof.

The next day, Johnny Knoxville signed him up for "Jackass 3" .

As I pretty much have an IV running from the coffee pot into my arm, the nightmare scenario would be me, power tools, NO coffee and a really bad hair day.
