He told officers he stripped before crawling under the client's house to do electrical work because he didn't want to soil his clothes, police said.Oh, come on. You're allowed to do things like that in Berkeley aren't you?
Honniball said Thursday that working in the nude gave him a better range of motion and that a skilled craftsman can work clothing -- and injury -- free....
Honniball was caught working naked in Berkeley three times in the last six years and put on probation for violating a city ordinance.
But really, naked carpentry? It sounds dangerous -- though somehow I'm not getting a mental picture of the precise accident I'm afraid of. And I'm not believing the cleanliness argument. He's got to put his clothes back on to leave the job, right? And he's not showering on the job, presumably. So he's just getting the insides of his clothes dirty. If you're going to say then he preserves the appearance of his clothes by keeping the outside clean, the simplest solution is wear the clothes inside out on the job.
Oh, my lord, I'm thinking way too much about the naked carpenter!
