Party Poopers German Cops Mistaken for Strippers
When you're having a great party and two men in police uniforms knock at your door, they're not necessarily male strippers -- they may actually be police officers. A young woman in western Germany learned that lesson at the weekend.
This is unfortunately not what happened in Simmern on Saturday night.
"A young woman was giving a party and there seems to have been some confusion initially because the partygoers thought the two officers were a strip act," a spokesman for the police in the south-western town of Simmern told SPIEGEL ONLINE on Monday.
Male strippers often dress as policemen and the line "We've been called to investigate a disturbance" can serve as a cue for them to discard their uniforms and perform an erotic dance.
Not this time though. "The misunderstanding was swiftly resolved and calm was restored," the spokesman said. "And there was no theft of any parts of the uniforms."
