Minneapolis: The Naked City

Neither rain, nor snow, nor gloom of night shall keep a naked Minnesota burglar from making his rounds …

A naked man got stuck in the chimney of a bookstore early Christmas morning. Don’t worry, it wasn’t Santa Claus.
The 34-year-old man was treated Thursday for bruises and abrasions at Hennepin County Medical Center after being found naked and lodged in the furnace flue at Uncle Hugo’s Bookstore. He was expected to be charged with attempted burglary on Friday.

His excuse? He left his keys in the store and just wanted to go back and get them, even though the store had been closed on Christmas Day. The police said he was probably drunk. Gee — ya think?
