Just when I think I've had enough of the news...

My local newspaper, the Times Colonist, ran this item today:

Naked man taken to hospital

A man who had been walking naked around Rock Bay was taken to hospital by police.

Officers who responded Monday after a complaint found the man "completely naked except for moments when a concerned woman citizen was able to place a towel around parts of him," said the Victoria police operations blog. When the officers asked why he was naked "the man responded by asking why they were walking around in clothes," the blog said.

"Unable to reconcile this philosophical paradox the officers conveyed the man to hospital for a mental health assessment."
