Naked Mailman Just Looking to Cheer Up Woman on His Route

If you're going to deliver mail naked, it might be a good idea to pick a warmer location than Wisconsin in December.

It's bad enough getting arrested for lewd and lascivious behavior. It's even worse having to explain the issue of "shrinkage" to the recipient.

A 52-year-old mail carrier was arrested at the North Shore Post Office, after admitting that he delivered the mail completely naked to a woman on his route. The naked mailman said that it was, in hindsight, a stupid thing to do and that he was sorry. The Wisconsin mailman says that he only did it to cheer up a woman on his route that had been stressed out, The Associated Press reports.

In fact, the naked mailman says that the 21-year-old woman kind of "dared him" to do it. The woman denies this, of course. Though she told police she does not believe he intended any harm. The mailman said he did it as a joke to "cheer her up and make her laugh."

The naked mailman has not been identified. But Chris Baltz, manager of the North Shore Post Office, said the matter is being handled internally and the department is working with law enforcement. The employee is not out delivering mail, he told Whitefish Bay Now news.

Lewd and lascivious behavior is also commonly known as indecent exposure. Indecent exposure is the crime of purposefully displaying one's genitals in public, causing others to be alarmed or offended. It is often done for the sexual gratification of the offender, and can become a sexual assault if physical contact is made.

In other words, for the most part, it's no joke.
