A man who has been charged with making a naked dash through a Tennessee supermarket told police he was "bored and didn't have anything else to do."

No mention of whether alcohol was involved, but I think we can take it as read.

Ethel, you get your clothes on!

I was standing over there by the tomatoes, and there he came, running through the pole beans, through the fruits and vegetables, naked as a jay bird.

Although we can be fairly sure this guy entered the world naked, he probably didn't stay that way. Where the heck did he leave his clothes?
It is a good bet that he isn't bored, now.

True, Steve, but he may wish he was.

Unfortunately for him he wasn't Erykah Badu.

Having spent some time in Kingsport in the early 80's, I can see where one might get that bored! I also wonder where he left his clothes as the story says he wend to a fast food restaurant and asked to borrow clothes!

Cleanup on aisle 5. Bring a mop cop.

At least they know he wasn't shoplifting.

Did they say they found the naked in a bathroom "AT" Hardees, or with a...?

him, not the

When the old folks said, "Back when we were kids, we had to make our OWN entertainment!", I don't think this is what they had in mind.

When I get bored I read a book. I have to say this has never entered my mind.

Not even in college?

UGH believable

At least he brought his own sack.

wiredog I went to Carolina (Go tarheels!) so....of course I did. Have you ever been to Chapel Hill?

"Sir, you cannot leave without paying for that cocktail weenie."

Banana sales were up 20% that day.

Nursecindy, is it true there's a bar in Chapel Hill called "He's Not Here"?

So that's where my nephew has been.

Yes bonmot. That's true. There's also a great wine bar called The Westend Wine Bar, and of course the Carolina Brewery. Or at least I've heard of them. I mostly studied very hard when I was there. I was a Journalism Major at that time and wanted to be the next great thing in Journalism. Maybe another Gene Weingarten or Dave Barry.
btw, I recommend the Carolina Brewery highly.

So he was just hanging out in the supermarket?

I also read a book when I'm bored. Or work on a jigsaw puzzle, watch TV, watch a DVD, paint pictures. I agree that alcohol just have been involved.
