There’s nothing like a bit of a “bad boy” image to turn even upstanding, law-abiding citizens into admirers — and by that I mean, there’s nothing like the sight of three (mostly) naked men stealing from a restaurant in the middle of the night to make staff laugh.

Two naked men and a third friend clad only in his underwear reportedly broke into a South Florida eatery and stole 60 hamburgers, three pounds of bacon, three red peppers and a paddleboard, reports the Fort Myers News-Press (warning: link has video that autoplays) this week, and were caught on camera in the midst of their caper. Police say they also left a trail of red peppers outside by a bathhouse.

“Dumb, dumber and dumbest,” one waitress joked.

“They left a trail like Hansel and Gretel,” another waitress said. “One of them probably said after, ‘Uh, guys, where did we leave our clothes?'”

Authorities have released photos in an attempt to identify the men, who police say are likely college age guys out for a bit of fun. One of the guys even realizes he’s in his birthday suit at one point, and appears to turn away from one camera, not realizing there’s another one nearby.

And because the threesome are fit, strapping fellas, well, the restaurant’s manager jokes that his staff wouldn’t mind if they came back.

“These two want to meet the bandits,” he said about the jokey waitresses. “Everybody wants to work the night shift now.”

He adds it’s the first time robbers have busted through a back door totally naked looking only for beef, and not money.

“When I saw the security footage, I said how is this guy not wearing any clothes?” he says. “Then I said, ‘Wait, it’s not just one. There’s three naked. That’s what makes this funny.”

It is scientific fact that the more naked people there are involved in a late-night burger heist, the funnier it becomes, that is true.
