Police officers mistaken for strippers stripped at Humpty Doo hen night
WHERE in Australia has a hen night attacked actual police officers, believing the officers to be the four strippers they’d ordered to entertain and thrill? Yep, at the Humpty Doo Tavern, at the Humpty Doo Hotel in the Northern Territory town of Humpty Doo.
It was blushing bride-to-be Wendy Haddon’s party.
Says Senior Sergeant Louise Jorgenson, of Palmerston police station, to the Northern Territory News:
“They were most excited about the presence. There were various shouts about how the strippers had arrived.”
The policemen, who “nearly had their shirts torn off”, did “escape with their dignity intact”.
Senior Sergeant Bob Harrison adds:
“I don’t know any strippers that wear accoutrements belts and turn up in a police car.”
Ms Haddon, wearing a see-through plastic veil and tiara fashioned out of two sets of orange male genitals, tells us:
“Well, we thought they were going to be the strippers, actually. But, no, they weren’t. Bugger.”
