    Oh dear god.

    They should have cops carry around spare boxers or something. Problem solved. It's a crime to be a human being that is missing an article of clothing? Who the hell comes up with this stuff?

    OK, so the Pope's folks are dopes. That's the dry cleaner Pope's not the one in the Vatican. Must be they need cheap publicity. If you know Mr. Woollen, and I do know him for a number of years, this is right up there with the media coverage of other famous alledged incicents which has recently been thrown out and made the laughing stock of the national media. Give it up, and stop voyuering into peoples cars. Gee, I hope my fly is closed and my shirt button to the top and my shoes are tied and I have socks on and my belt is buckled next time I go to a drive-thru. But does make my choice of a dry cleaner much easier.

    Was he naked or have briefs on. If he had briefs on it would be no more than wearing a bathing suit
