Austrian museum gives naked people free entry

Vienna's prestigious Leopold Museum offered free entry to "The Naked Truth," a new exhibition of early 1900s erotic art, if they showed up wearing just a swimsuit — or nothing at all. Viennese residents responded whole-heartedly to the museum's gesture by saying "Well, if it keeps these fat, ugly exhibitionists off the streets, its A-Okay with us."

Mario Vorhemes, a 20-year-old Vienna resident was nonchalant. "What's the big deal?" he asked. "We're born naked into this world. Why can't we walk around in it without clothes from time to time?" Mario's rhetorical question was answered by God who responded "So Mario, would you also like to periodically suckle on your mother's teats and later shit your pants?"

Elina Ranta, a museum patron and tourist from Finland commented "In English, my name means 'beach. That's pretty funny under these circumstances, isn't it?"

The answer, reportedly, was "Not really".
