Have you ever thought that your work would be more interesting if you could do it in the nude? If you're a fry cook maybe not. Meanwhile, for someone like me who spends time reviewing porn all day, being naked doesn't seem like such a stretch. Nevertheless, since I work in an office not in the privacy of my own home, I manage somehow to keep my clothes on around here. Then again, no one has ever asked me to install shelves.

According to the Associated Press, (04/22/06) one carpenter just couldn't keep his pants on. Percy Honnibull, 50, was charged last week with misdemeanor indecent exposure for an episode that took place October of last year. Apparently, the wheels of justice don't spin very fast in Oakland, California where this builder took to the buff while building a bookcase at a client's home.

Apparently, he tried to claim to police that he had to crawl under the customer's house at some point so he decided to strip off his clothes to keep them clean. His excuse seems unlikely though as he has been charged three times already in the last six years for similar incidents in Berkley and previously has been put on probation for breaking a city ordinance.

He claims he won't try to build in his birthday suit again but he does think of working apparel-free as enhancing his artistry as he claims it gives him better range of motion. He does recognize that certain tasks don't lend well to the clothing optional option, "In certain situations such as demolitions where you are smashing rock you want to be clothed and protected because this rock can harm you."

The homeowner, who returned early to find Honnibull completely undressed while completing his bookcase, fired him on the spot and deducted $200 from his payment of the builder's bill so he could pay to have all his locks changed. I guess he panicked but he should have known that although he might have been startled to see more than the usual workman's crack, this handyman is probably harmless.

Normally only professional contractors try screwing, their customers and they keep their clothes on while they do it. Normally the people who hire them lose their shirts.
