This one sounds like a subplot in a John Waters film (for those of you who have seen “Polyester”) but we can understand why police officials are taking this seriously.

It will be interesting to see how this one plays out.

“This is no myth,” community service officer Sgt. Michael O’Hara told the Boston Globe. “It’s happening.”
