|An unknown man has been bugging women _ and police _ by using an insect story to try to persuade women to disrobe. Police said the man, who remains at large, has told female workers in at least seven businesses they have a tick on their clothes and should remove clothing to find it, said Waukesha Police Sgt. John Konkol.
"We don't know what his potential gain is, if it's sexual gratification or he's trying to be funny, but it's a serious crime," Konkol said.
That's witty. But all the same, are women really dumb enough to take off clothes because someone suggests there is a tick on said clothing? Ok, lime disease isn't that great. And women do tend to be afraid of bugs. (Granted, I'm female and fear not something 1/100000th my size, but most apparently do)
