    Someone please tell me, we're not all this stupid!

    BERLIN - A naked American tourist raised eyebrows when he went for a walk through a German city and told police he thought this was acceptable behavior in Germany.

    "We have been having unusually hot weather here lately but, all the same, we can't have this," a spokesman for police in the southern city of Nuremberg said on Tuesday. "The man said he thought walking around naked was tolerated in Germany."

    Many Germans enjoy nude sunbathing which is allowed in public parks. The 41-year-old was carrying his clothes in a bag when police stopped him on Monday evening after complaints from pedestrians.

    The tourist was not under the influence of drugs, said police. They made him get dressed and pay a 200 euro ($269) deposit pending his investigation for indecent behavior.

      Not ALL of us are as stupid as that a$$wipe. I grew up in a tourist area and am not surprised at how some clods behave.

        Thanks for the interesting topic-usmc1
        (and my fellow Dallas Cowboy fan).

        Perhaps,the fellow should argue that he did not know where the public park area had ended and where the street had begun.

          The story didn't spectifically state that he was at a public park in the first place. If he was, then I'm sure he would have gotten off a little bit easier.

          It's apparent he just decided for himself that nudity was accepted in Germany. I guess he was wrong. At least he was able to pay a 'deposit' and let go instead of taken to the slammer. Here, you are taken to the slammer, then post a bond to get out. Oh well. Let's see what happens.

            He thought this was acceptable? Amazing the guy could have done a little research. Wow I know they are tolerant in europe especially Germany but this guy was dumber than average, I hope.
